Tony Romo to have increased influence with Cowboys, per report

Tony Romo is reportedly set to have more influence over game planning and personnel decisions.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is set to have more influence over game plans, personnel and play-calling, according to ESPN's Ed Werder.

Having signed a six-year, $108 million extension, the 33-year-old is set for a bigger role in the organization. Werder goes on to state that Romo will meet with the coaching staff on Mondays and Tuesdays to help them with game planning.

Head coach Jason Garrett is firmly on the hot seat going into the 2013 season, and has already lost play-calling duties to offensive coordinator Bill Callahan. This move appears to further marginalize the embattled coach.

Romo completed 65.6 percent of his passes for 4,903 yards, 28 touchdowns and 19 interceptions in 2012. It was one of his best seasons, statistically, but the Cowboys missed the playoffs again and he continues to take the blame, fair or not, for Dallas' struggles. With a new contract and an increased role with the franchise, however, Romo isn't going away any time soon.
