It hasn't even been a week since Tony Romo retired from the Dallas Cowboys to enter the world of sports broadcasting, and he's already coming out of it - but for a completely different sport!

The Dallas Mavericks are going to allow Tony Romo to suit up for the team's home finale against the Denver Nuggets for that game only. 

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban wants to pay tribute to Romo's prolific career as a member of the Dallas Cowboys.

Though this is meant to honor Romo, the Mavericks are going to treat him like an actual player on the roster for the day of the game; he will be in uniform and seated alongside other Mavericks players.

Romo is actually a pretty good ball player, so there's a chance he might hit the court you never know!


Check out video of him playing basketball below.

And of course while you're down there check out the Twitter reactions....
