Not only did quarterback Tony Romo miss out on being selected to the NFC Pro Bowl roster this year, but itís unlikely he will even make it as an alternate. Thatís assuming heís even one of the alternates at all.
The Cowboys are one of a few teams that never release their Pro Bowl alternates, mainly for future contract and incentive reasons. So itís unclear if Romo was one of the alternates this year, but the Panthers announced Cam Newton as being the first alternate for the NFC. Detroit also announced Matthew Stafford was an alternate as well.
The only other quarterbacks in the NFC with a shot to make it would be Atlantaís Matt Ryan or San Franciscoís Alex Smith, who was not named an alternate.
So itís possible Romo is the third alternate to play, but itís unlikely it will get that far.
