Parcells to Romo: Just wondering if coming to Dallas has worked out

In 2003, the Denver Broncos offered undrafted free agent Tony Romo $20,000 to sign. The Cowboys offered $10,000. Romo signed with the Cowboys, thinking his chances were better of making their 53-player roster than the Broncos. The Cowboys cut Quincy Carter during camp, and well, you know the rest of the story.

Soon after Romo signed a $108 million extension in March, he got a text message from former coach Bill Parcells: “I was just wondering if coming to Dallas had worked out for you.”

“I had to laugh," Romo said. "It was pretty funny.”
