Garrett: Cowboys still processing decision on Romo

The waiting game on Tony Romo rages on.

Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett confirmed Monday at the Annual League Meeting in Phoenix that the team has yet to make a decision on what to do with their veteran star quarterback.

"It's really unchanged," Garrett told NFL Network's Steve Wyche. "He's still part of our roster. We haven't made any roster moves with Tony at this point. So it's just status quo right now."

Asked why the Cowboys have yet to make a decisive move with Romo, Garrett made it clear the franchise feels no pressure to pull the trigger on his release.

"Tony's been a good quarterback for us for a long time," Garrett said. "We're working through his situation. The players aren't back for the offseason program yet, so we're just in a wait-and-see mode about what his status is going to be going forward."

Why should Dallas be in a rush? The Cowboys don't net any cap relief by cutting Romo until after June 1.

This "standoff" between Romo and the 'Boys -- if that's what we want to call it -- could easily stretch up to or beyond the the draft, with the passer-needy Houston Texans as the most viable landing spot for the 36-year-old quarterback.
