IRVING, Texas -- Tony Romo turns 35 on April 21. He might say he has four or five years left to play at a high level, but that's not how the Dallas Cowboys can look at it. They need to see a quarterback with two back surgeries, who missed a game last season with two transverse process fractures and who had rib cartilage damage, and start wondering about Romo's successor. "We do have to look to the future relative to quarterback," Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said at the NFL owners meetings in Phoenix.
IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys took a risk when they signed Greg Hardy. They mitigated the contractual risk to Hardy on the one-year deal by making sure he earned most of his money for each game he is on the 53-man roster.

The additions have been modest in terms of the salary cap and Greg Hardy stands to be the biggest difference-maker, but Polian isn’t sure how much Hardy will play if the NFL imposes some kind of suspension. "Adding Hardy looks like a good deal on paper," Polian said in the piece.
