If spring training is a time to be optimistic in baseball, then halfway through the offseason is a good time for positive vibes in football. Jason Witten has participated in the Cowboys offseason organized team activities and you know what he likes?
The way Tony Romo carries himself. Witten sees it as a continuation of Romo's performance last season when the quarterback had a career low nine interceptions.
"That was just a dimension of his game that he added, as far as [saying] 'I'm going to do what I have to do to protect the ball.'" Witten said. "Even if sometimes it means throwing the ball away and not taking a chance on plays that he maybe had done in the past. I think when he has that mindset, all of us are alert and the turnovers are not just on him but on everybody. But when he takes the mindset that he has to really protect the ball and just create, it’s just a good setting for all of us."
