There were 13 quarterbacks taken in the 2003 NFL draft. None of them were named Tony Romo.
After Romo went undrafted, every team had a chance to sign him, including his hometown Packers. Sports Illustrated NFL business analyst Andrew Brandt was a member of the Green Bay front office at the time and he relayed the story how the whole thing went down on SI Now Wednesday.
One scout wanted to sign the local kid, but no one else thought he was any good. Of course, Romo ended up signing with the Cowboys and things have worked out pretty well.
Romo will have a chance to exact revenge on Sunday at Lambeau.
