Romo: "We're As Deep At The WR Position As We've Been In A Long Time"

OXNARD, Calif. – Tony Romo is excited to see Dez Bryant getting more and more comfortable with each training camp practice.

He also sees "a good problem" with the entire wide receiver group: a rich talent level.

"They're doing great," Romo said. "We're as deep at the wide receiver position as we've been in a long time.

"Terrance (Williams) has had a great camp, so has Brice (Butler). Everyone's really done a great job. It's going to be a very tough decision to see how many guys we're going to keep and who's going to go where. That's a good problem to have."

Williams enters camp once again as the projected No. 2 receiver opposite Bryant. Beasley has remains a reliable option in the slot. Butler and 2015 incumbents Lucky Whitehead and Devin Street are competing with a group of young receivers, including undrafted rookie Andy Jones, for the remaining two (or perhaps) three open spots.

A healthy Bryant makes everyone's job easier. The seventh-year veteran is rounding into form in practice after spending the offseason rehabbing from January foot and ankle surgery.

"He continues to get better every day," Romo said. "Each day it gets 20 minutes longer where he's able to continue to perform at that level. I think by the end of this week he's going to be Dez Bryant again, if not already there. It's all about getting yourself in great physical condition and pushing yourself every day. We know how talented he is."
