Tony Romo is at peace with his decision to retire from professional football.
Romo announced he’d hang up his cleats on April 4, and was promptly hired as an analyst for CBS Sports.
Although many believe he could still be a capable starter in the NFL, the former Dallas Cowboys standout ruled out any chance of returning to the field on Wednesday.
“Oh yeah, probably a good chance. We’ll see how it plays out. I think you’ll find – I’m joking,” Romo said on NFL Total Access, according to Marc Sessler of NFL.com. “Like I said before, I’m done.”
Romo spoke at length about his excitement for his new job, admitting that there’d be a learning curve.
“I’m pretty happy and excited about the opportunity that was presented to me,” he said. “I got coach (and veteran CBS play-by-play man) Jim Nantz teaching me all the tricks of the trade. I’m going to be behind him, but I’m improving fast. I’m excited about it. It gives me a chance to compete, get better and improve. I get to be passionate about the game, hopefully teach a little bit, hopefully make it a little bit entertaining along the way. It’s going to be fun.”
