Here are some reactions from fellow athletes wishing the all-star QB all the best with his new career:
Thanks for all the mentorship, comradery, and a new friendship. Every since I stepped and Dallas you took me under your wing and made it your job to give me a better understanding of this game to make sure I continue to maximize my potential. Appreciate you brother. Ps. Also thanks for making me listen to your awful music and showing me the right way to eat Nick and Sams.

Good for Romo. Retire a Cowboy, get paid to look handsome on TV, spend more time with family & keep his health.
