DMN Blog: Tony Romo: 'Whose job isn't on the line?'

By Tim MacMahon/Blogger

Tony Romo scoffed at a question yesterday about Wade Phillips' tenuous job security.

"Whose job isn't on the line?" Romo said. "Honestly, I don't think it has anything to do with Wade or any individual. That includes everybody from the top down on the roster, players, all the coaches, people in the front office."

No, not really.

I'll go out on a limb and say that the general manager is guaranteed to keep his job. Jerry Jones isn't going to can his right-hand man/son Stephen Jones, either.

Nobody on the coaching staff is guaranteed a gig here next season, but there are players you can go ahead and pencil onto the 2010 roster, even though the looming uncapped season could give teams free reign on getting rid of contracts. The list of Cowboys basically guaranteed to return next season:

Tony Romo
Jason Witten
Andre Gurode
Leonard Davis
Felix Jones
Roy Williams
Martellus Bennett
DeMarcus Ware
Jay Ratliff
Anthony Spencer
Bradie James
Mike Jenkins
Orlando Scandrick
Mat McBriar
