Is Tony Romo fat?

Saturday July 30th, 2016

Tony Romo jogged onto the field at Cowboys training camp on Sunday, and was immediately filmed and photographed by hundreds of onlookers. One, Cowboys beat writer Jon Machota, snapped a photo of Romo looking kind of fat.

So, naturally, “Fat” Tony Romo became a major training camp storyline, and memes ensued.

The question then became, is Romo fat? It appeared so, until Machota quickly rushed to the defense of the Cowboys quarterback.

Here’s some more footage that shows Romo is not actually fat.

Everyone knows facts don’t matter on Twitter. The takes would fly.

So, it looks like Tony Romo isn’t fat after all. Rest easy, Dallas.
