NFL teams are making the first real step in their off-season preparations as many went to their first minicamp on Tuesday and they have already given some great stories.

The biggest story comes out of San Francisco where Tight-End Vernon Davis has kept his word and remained absent from their first mandatory session.

San Francisco is not existing harmoniously right now and has some work to do this summer, but Dallas is a different story.

The big story coming out of the Cowboys minicamp unsurprisingly surrounds Quarterback Tony Romo.

Romo has been making headlines outside of the NFL as he has appeared at numerous high profile sports events where he's seemed to be the teams downfall leading fans to believe in the the Romo curse.

But his first day back to Cowboys football brings with a light hearted and comical tale of an NFL Quarterback eager to return to the field.

Romo's grand scheme

Throughout the first day of the Cowboys minicamp, Quarterback Brandon Weeden took all the first reps with the team.

Not that this should be taken as Romo being replaced, the Cowboys starter is still recovering from surgery - despite what he himself may think.

Romo was in attendance and was eager to take to the field so he took hold of Caleb Hanie's jersey and entered into the seven-on-seven drills.

He did get about four or five snaps under his belt before his plan came tumbling down around him.

He was inevitably noticed by Head Coach Jason Garrett who pulled his superstar Quarterback out immediately.

Apparently what gave Romo away was that Hanie's jersey was a bit too 'snug' on him.

Romo had apparently already asked Weeden for his jersey but that was never going to fit so he was forced to then turn to Hanie and hope for the best.

He seemed in good spirits after session saying: "I almost snuck in,

"I feel pretty good. I could go."

Romo is expected to be ready for when the Cowboys open up their regular season campaign against the San Francisco 49ers at AT&T Stadium on September 7th.
