The NFL is going to have to wait on a broadcast debut from Tony Romo. Originally slated to take his talents to the CBS Sports booth on Friday, Aug. 25 when the Seattle Seahawks host the Kansas City Chiefs, there's been a monumental change of plans. On Tuesday, the former Dallas Cowboys' quarterback announced the birth of his third son, Jones McCoy Romo, and will skip the preseason event to spend time with his family -- where he ought to be right now. After being released amicably from the Dallas Cowboys this spring, the most prolific passer in franchise history now sits as the new No. 1 analyst for CBS Sports -- working to transition from 14 years of playing football in the NFL to dissecting it on television. Romo readily admits that will take a lot of reps, and he was seen doing practice broadcasts with co-host Jim Nantz at more than one outing this preseason.
