NFC East Noise: Jones wants more from Romo

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones expects a lot from his football team, seemingly every season. 

Those lofty expectations increased for Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, who signed a six-year $108 million contract this offseason.

Romo, not always known to be around the Cowboys training complex for voluntary workouts, now finds his ultimate boss expecting to see more of the QB.

Speaking with the NFL Network, Jones said that he expects "every ounce" of Romo's focus on winning games for the Cowboys now that he is in the $100 million club.

In previous years, Romo made headlines off the field for his celebrity dating habits. Now married, that should be one less distraction for Romo.

Jones said that despite the $108 million pledged to Romo, he has been "disappointed" the last two seasons with the Cowboys.

Questions about Romo's work ethic have popped up before, with Cowboys tight end Jason Witten defending the quarterback earlier this month. 

No similar questions exist for Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Last season, RGIII and the Redskins knocked the Cowboys out of the playoffs with a win over Dallas in the last week of the regular season.

As a rookie, Griffin went undefeated against the Cowboys, including a memorable four-touchdown, 300-yard performance against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day.
