Cowboys’ New Quarterback Deleted His Old Tweets Ripping Tony Romo

Rucuss staffMay 8, 2016

Every Dallas Cowboys fan has been frustrated about one season or another.

And Cowboys draft pick Dak Prescott is one of those fans. The former Mississippi State quarterback grew up as a Cowboys fan, but he hasn’t always been a big fan of Tony Romo. He’s even shared his frustration on social media.

But never in a million years did Prescott would have to answer for his comments. Prescott, who was drafted in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, will be back up to Romo in the fall. After the Cowboys selected him with the 135th overall pick last Saturday, he had to discuss some old tweets in which he ripped Romo.



It didn’t take long for Prescott to delete those tweets. But he still was asked about them as soon as he arrived at the Cowboys’ rookie minicamp.

“I’m going to let him bring it up,” Prescothe told “I think it’s funny, I’m sure he’ll think it’s funny. I was a frustrated fan at the time. I’m sure you can go back and look at fans of Mississippi State and they may have said something similar at one point or another, so I was just being a fan and now he’s my teammate and I’m behind him 100 percent.”

Prescott continued, “Romo wins and I win, and I think that’s the biggest thing you can take from the quarterback’s position, the biggest takeaway. He goes out there and he wins a lot of games and always has the Cowboys in position to win a game and I felt like I did the same thing in college. To come to the Cowboys and learn under him will be exciting.”

Prescott’s tweets came from a 28-18 Dallas loss to the Redskins in Week 17 of the 2012 season, in which Romo threw three interceptions.
