Because though injuries were a factor in limiting him to only four starts in the last two seasons, he became a Pro Bowler after his first handful of games, like Prescott, and quickly won plenty of hearts and respect in Dallas, like Prescott. Romo endured. He did it consistently, affectionately for 14 seasons.
He turns 37 on April 21. Several TV outlets wanted his football acumen in their booths. And he enters that arena just like he entered the NFL. In fact, just like he exited the NFL.

The rotation seniors who will leave are center Kennedy Meeks, forward Isaiah Hicks, and backup point guard Nate Britt. They’ll take a little less than 40 percent of the team’s scoring out the door with them. Meeks alone was responsible for almost half of UNC’s national-best 302 offensive rebounds.
Who they added in free agency: The Seahawks haven’t done much. They signed former first-rounder Luke Joeckel, who didn’t pan out in Jacksonville, on a one-year deal with $7 million guaranteed. Pete Carroll said during the owners’ meetings in March that the team sees Joeckel as a left tackle, and that’s where he’ll start out with the Seahawks.
