Daniel Jones says he talked to the great Tony Romo of the Dallas Cowboys after tapping the New York Giants quarterback on Jason Garrett’s offense.

Garrett became the Giants’ offensive coordinator after his contract as head coach of NFC former rivals was not renewed at the end of last NFL season.

The 54-year-old Dallas has spent nine and a half seasons as coach, a spell where he only recorded one losing season and won three division titles, but only tasted victory in two playoff games.

Romo played in Garrett’s offense until 2016, earned four pro bowl selections and leaned past the Cowboys on behalf of the Jones.

“I have [talked with Romo] “I’m sure we’re going,” Jones, who became the Giants’ undisputed starter after Eli Manning’s retirement, told a news conference on Wednesday. “

The Giants (4-12) and the Cowboys (7-6) were both eliminated from the playoffs last season and trailed by the NFC East’s Philadelphia Gols.

Jones added: “I did it, of course, gave stuff to some cowboys and what they did in the past

“The rules make it hard to fully communicate about that stuff, so it takes a little patience to get a playbook and get a point where I can understand the kind of idea and get some verbal word so” but when I get my hands on these things I I tried my best to be ready. “

The Giants, who have thrown Sakon Berkeley back, are also leaning towards Dallas’ counterpart Ezekiel Elliott and will be leaning towards Kabui.

“I haven’t contacted Jake yet, but that’s what I’m planning to do,” Berkeley said. “But I want to first dismantle the system and get myself down and then go to Jake and see what he’s doing here and what he’s doing there.

“It’s kind of like there [is] There are some basic stuff that you learn and some basics you should be able to do but at the end of the day there are some things that you need to be great as a football player and use your creativity. And I will definitely use it to try to learn from him and see what he can do. “
