In the 2006 off-season, Sean Payton (now head coach of the New Orleans Saints), offered a third round draft pick for Romo, but Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones refused, asking for no less than a second round draft pick.
Romo is the first Eastern Illinois player to have his number retired.
As a junior, he led Division I-AA in passing efficiency, completing 138-of-207 passes for 2,068 yards and 21 touchdowns.
On December 19, 2002, Romo became the first player in Eastern Illinois and Ohio Valley Conference history to win the Walter Payton Award, given annually to the top Division I-AA football player.
He said of the event, "It was such an honor to be inducted into the Hall of Fame here, and with the jersey ceremony, it holds a special place in your heart." Romo attended the 2003 NFL Combine.
Despite intriguing some scouts, he went undrafted by any NFL team during the 2003 NFL Draft.
