Jason Witten: Tomo Romo throwing the ball well

The Dallas Cowboys aren't going to let Tony Romo participate in offseason activities if he wasn't ready to play.

And based on what tight end Jason Witten has seen from his quarterback, Romo is in good shape to be out there during Phase One of the offseason program. Speaking to the Dallas Morning News, Witten said that Romo looks like the same quarterback he's become accustomed to catching passes from.

"He is throwing good," Witten told the newspaper. "I have caught a lot of balls over the years and it's the same zip, same as always. He looks good."

Witten said he admires Romo's toughness, given he had back surgery this past December that forced him to miss the end of the regular season. Romo also had a back procedure performed on him last offseason.

"I think just the will that guy has - it's at the top of the list of the players I've seen," Witten said. "Like I said, we know what people are going to say. But I think for us and for him it's just go out there and get better and kind of perfect that craft so when you get to the chance, you take advantage of those opportunities. He looks good."
