Poor, poor Tony Romo.
My heart bleeds for him.
The Cowboys quarterback said while he understood the business side of running back DeMarco Murray leaving for the Eagles it was also a move that hit him at a personal level.
“It just happened, so you have to process everything,” Romo said, via Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com. “All the way up until today, I was still thinking we’d be able to keep DeMarco. Obviously, it’s not an ideal situation.I’m losing a close friend, too, so that hurts.
“We have to trust in the process and the people making the decisions. We have salary cap implications and a bunch of other things that we have to decide. That plays a role. The Eagles obviously thought as highly of him as we did.”
Romo said he was lobbying Murray to stay, probably as much as Murray’s old college roommate and now-Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford was.
“I may have tried a few times, maybe just a few,” Romo said. “But sometimes that’s just a reality. And sometimes that’s disappointing.”
