Dallas Cowboys News in Brief: Barber’s Contract and Romo’s Possible Proposal

Notwithstanding my recent trip back to the decade before I was alive, there is some Cowboys news to report.

Barber’s Contract Talks

Marion BarberAccording to this video clip from the NFL Network, the Cowboys plan to step up their efforts to sign Marion Barber. For more on this, check out The Landry Hat.

Romo’s Possible Proposal

Now here’s a sudden change in direction for this blog: From 1960s Cowboys rushing statistics to Tony Romo’s love life. Someone from US Magazine.com sent me a link to this story, so I feel somewhat obligated to share it:

Jessica Simpson is head over heels in love with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo – and close pals say an engagement might be around the corner.

“I think they’re going to get married,” Romo’s close friend of three years, Michael Starr, says in the latest issue of Us Weekly, on newsstands now.

Starr’s prediction comes on top of Romo’s former fling Sophia Bush telling Us, “I think they could go the distance.

“They’re perfect for each other,” the actress, a mutual friend of Romo and Simpson, added. “They’re both funny and wonderful and kind. I’m rooting for them.”

Even Simpson’s ex, Nick Lachey, has chimed in to add his blessing. “I wish her nothing but happiness,” he told Us. “If she’s found that… good for her.”

I personally know far more about Jim Lachey of Washington Redskins fame than I do about Nick Lachey, but I suppose this is indeed news.

Flozell and the Free Agent Market

Apparently this draft has quite a number of candidates at the tackle position, but I am not pleased about the possibility of losing Flozell Adams is troublesome. Here is a blurb from the DMN:

The team has some concerns about signing Adams. Signing an offensive lineman in free agency is doubtful unless it’s an upgrade over what they have or finding someone better than Adams. But taking one in the second day of the draft is possible.

The report says that Dallas will start Pat McQuistan if Flozell leaves. Not good.
