Tight end Jason Witten said he was impressed by Dirk Nowitzki’s tweet of encouragement to quarterback Tony Romo.
The Dallas Mavericks star wrote on his Twitter account Monday: “Dear tony romo. Don't worry abt all the critics. I heard that same garbage for a long time. Keep working hard and keep improving.”
Witten said it was a classy move from the NBA veteran, who led the Mavericks to the championship last season after years of failings in the playoffs.
“Obviously, he’s heard it for a long time,” Witten said of Nowitzki. “I think his mindset is what he really said at the bottom of that tweet – keep your mind focused, keep working hard. ... I think Tony’s trying to do the same thing. We’re trying to do the same thing. We’re a long ways away from playing in those kinds of games, but it’s good to think about it, and it’s good to prepare for those situations and hope you put yourself in those situations.
“But yeah, it was a class act of him to do that. I know Tony appreciated it.”
