OXNARD, Calif. (AP) - Tony Romo was waiting in California when the Dallas Cowboys arrived for training camp.
Romo, who didn't take a real snap in offseason workouts after signing the richest contract in franchise history, finally returned for the first training camp practices Sunday after "uniquely running mountains" on the West Coast.
That's how owner Jerry Jones described his quarterback's efforts to get back in shape after a procedure to have a cyst removed from his back in April.
Romo says he tried to cram a full offseason of conditioning into the last month and a half and "that helped me get ready for today and hopefully for the beginning of the season."
Entering his seventh full season as the starter, Romo signed a six-year, $108 million contract in March.
