Tony Romo on Sam Darnold, Adam Gase Pairing: QB Has 'Peyton Manning-Like' Traits

Count Tony Romo as a fan of the New York Jets hiring Adam Gase as the team's next head coach.

"I think putting him together with Sam Darnold is going to be a very good combination," the CBS analyst said Thursday, per Lorenzo Reyes of USA Today. "I think Darnold has some Peyton Manning-like traits, and Adam did a great job, obviously, with Peyton in that situation."

Ian Rapoportof NFL Network reported Wednesday the Jets' plan to hire Gase.

The 40-year-old coach spent the past three years as head coach of the Miami Dolphins, accumulating a 23-25 record, but prior to that, he was one of the most well-respected offensive minds in the league.
