Height: 6' 2"

Weight: 223 

Position:

Nickname: Tony

Real Name: Antonio Ramiro Romo

College: Eastern Illinois (Bonus: High School in Wisconsin)

Target: Bears Secondary; Urlacher on Witten

Claim to Fame: Dated Jessica Simpson and Carrie Underwood; went undrafted out of Eastern Illinois but supplanted Drew Bledsoe as the Cowboys QB; mishandled a place kicking hold in a NFC Wild Card game in Seattle costing Dallas the game.  

What they're saying about him this week:

Bob LeGere at the Daily Herald compares their rise to stardom.

Romo wasn’t given the keys to the car until he served a three-year apprenticeship in Dallas, during which he failed to throw a single pass. That lengthy learning process wasn’t surprising, considering he was signed by the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of Eastern Illinois University.

Since then, Romo has started 56 games; Cutler has started 54.

Fantasy Bet: Romo 1 TD, 1 INT, 1 Fumble
