Texas governor Greg Abbott tweeted after the Dallas Cowboys’ 20–10 victory over the Eagles on Sunday that the team should consider signing Tim Tebow to replace Tony Romo, who was injured during the game.
Romo left the game in the third quarter with a broken collar bone, and is expected to miss eight weeks. Tebow spent this preseason with the Eagles after signing a one-year deal with the team in April, but he did not survive the final round of roster cuts. He has not played in a regular season NFL game since 2012.
The Cowboys have given no indication of interest in Tebow.
Brandon Weeden is set to be Romo’s replacement. Weeden went 7 of 7 with 73 yards and a touchdown on Sunday after Romo’s exit.
The Cowboys are 2–0 and will play the Falcons, who are also 2–0, in Week 3.
