Sometimes you have to give up something when another opportunity comes along. Tony Romo had to make that decision when he retired from the Dallas Cowboys and accepted a job to be a commentator on CBS. Nobody, including Tony himself, knew he was going to get another opportunity to suit up with another professional sports team. Especially an NBA team…

The Dallas Mavericks decided to honor the longtime Cowboy with a spot on the team for their final home game this season. Mavs owner Mark Cuban contacted Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, Dirk Nowitzky contacted Tony Romo, and now Tony get’s to participate in the morning shootaround, team meetings, and early pregame warm-ups. He won’t actually play in the game, but he will be sitting on the bench.

Most people don’t know that Romo has skill on the court. The former NFL QB was a star in high school before he chose football as his main sport. He still has game to this day, and some footage of him dropping buckets during shootaround has already surfaced. Check it out below!

Thank you #mavs. I'm humbled by your gesture…At least I made one shot today.
