The Dallas Cowboys legend Tony Romo recently retired from football, and Mark Cuban has decided to honor the QB by suiting him up for the Mavs home finale.
Before the Dallas Mavericks tipped off against the San Antonio Spurs last night, Mavs owner and business maven Mark Cuban offered a rather cryptic and odd message to the media. He stated that Dallas had a roster move coming soon involving a “pass-first point guard” and that it wouldn’t be your “typical d-league call up”.
Confusion and intrigue enveloped MFFLs everywhere wondering who the mystery player would be.
As it turns out, the roster move is indeed unconventional.
News just broke via Mark Stein that the Mavs will suit up Dallas Cowboys legend and all-time NFL great Tony Romo to honor him after his recent retirement from football.
This is a classy move by Cuban, choosing to honor Romo as a fellow Dallas star. Its also a genius business move, making what would ordinarily be an uneventful game between two below .500 teams into a must-see event. Romo has certainly earned a heroes goodbye by the city of Dallas, as he is a historically great quarterback for a top tier franchise in the NFL, even if he did have some injury problems and didn’t win a championship.
Tune into FSSW or league pass Tuesday at 7:30 to see Tony Romo suit up for the first and last time as a Dallas Maverick.
