Tony Romo thought about giving up football to play Golf

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has been dealing with injuries for the past couple seasons, which had him thinking that maybe it was time for him to move on from the NFL. In a recent interview with pastor Matt Chandler of The Village Church in Dallas, Texas to do a podcast, Romo talked about his passion for Golf and how he almost walked away from the NFL to play professionally.

“I was just struggling for about three days. I remember sitting in my hotel room right there and I was so pent up with anxiety and everything was just coming to a head and it was like, ‘I can’t take it.’ It was just so much. My whole life felt like it was on this moment.

“That’s when I sat in bed and I just prayed to the Lord, and this was a very defining moment for me. I was like, ‘If I’m not meant to be the quarterback here or play quarterback in the NFL, that’s fine. Then I’m going to go back and be a really good assistant golf club professional back in Burlington, Wisconsin.’

Romo obviously has football running through his veins, but maybe it is time for the Cowboys to turn to a new quarterback in the draft.
