Report: Mavs will suit up Tony Romo, put him on bench for season finale


It's been quite a week for Tony Romo.

Just days after the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback went from behind to center to CBS' No. 1 NFL analyst alongside play-by-play man Jim Nantz, comes a report from ESPN's Marc Stein that Romo will suit up for the Dallas Mavericks Tuesday night in their regular-season finale against the Denver Nuggets.

Stein reports that Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has said over the past week that the team wanted to add "a pass-first point guard" in the final days of the season and that sources say he has been referring to Romo, 37, who after 14 years with the Cowboys is moving to the broadcast booth.

While Romo will be on the roster, Stein reports that he won't actually play in the game. Romo played basketball in high school in Wisconsin and here's a YouTube clip of him in a pickup game as a Cowboy.
