that is totally and completely untrue.
tony romo was the the nfl combine with every major cowboys official in town for attendance.
Romo attended the 2003 NFL Combine, but, despite intriguing some scouts, went undrafted by any NFL team during the 2003 NFL Draft. Throughout the draft, Romo was assured by Sean Payton of the Cowboys' interest (Romo was also intensely pursued by former Denver Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan), and shortly afterwards was signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the Cowboys.
payton told bp he didn't need to make a large bid because romo really wanted to come to dallas knowing there was a spot to win at qb.
