Cowboys Plan To 'Take Care' Of Romo

"Tony is going to play a lot more than two more years," vice president Stephen Jones said. "We are going to take care of Tony. Tony is going to be a Cowboy."

Player: Cowboys Lack Leadership, Accountability
Cowboys defensive end Jason Hatcher believes that the team suffers from a leadership void. He was asked this week who carries the leadership torch for the club. "Dude, I've got to be honest with you: That's a good question," Hatcher told KESN-FM. "I really don't know. It's just another thing we really need. ... We don't have that. We've got the talent. We've got everything we need (except) a Ray Lewis. When Ray Lewis speaks, everybody listens to him. A guy like that, we really don't got that. I think we definitely need somebody like that."
