Some Dallas Cowboys fans would like to see the team to bring back a familiar face after falling to 2-3 on the season.
A petition created Monday on Change.org calls on Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, head coach Jason Garrett, and offensive coordinator Scott Linehan to bring Tony Romo out of retirement. It has received more than 600 signatures as of Wednesday afternoon.
"The problem that I am looking to solve is the Dallas offense. Let's get Tony Romo back on the Cowboys roster so that we can open up the playbook again," the petition reads.
Romo, now an analyst for CBS, was asked about a hypothetical return to the NFL during an appearance on 105.3 The Fan's "Ben & Skin" show last month, and said he's healthy enough to play today.
Tony Romo just told us on @1053thefan that his health would not prevent him from playing right now. Basically said his health would be a non factor in a hypothetical return to playing. So for those who believe he quit playing over his health, he clearly disagrees with you.

However, when pressed further about making comeback, Romo replied, "You guys are silly."
