IRVING, Texas (AP) - Tony Romo picked up more than a six-time Pro Bowl guard who can help in pass protection and try to revive a comatose running game.

The signing of Brian Waters this week means the Dallas quarterback is no longer the oldest player on the roster.

There are still signs that Romo is an elder statesman at 33 as he gets set for the opener of his seventh full season as the starter Sunday night against the New York Giants.

For one thing, receiver Dez Bryant deflects MVP talk to Romo by saying the quarterback should win such an award because he's the "boss" and "CEO."

Plus, Romo's expanded role in the offense has been one of the primary talking points of the offseason.
