We already know that Tony Romo can play quarterback in the NFL and call games at a high-level. But it turns out he’s quite the impressionist, too.
Appearing on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Monday, Romo was asked by the show’s namesake if he remembered a dinner they had together in which Romo did impressions of other NFL quarterbacks. However, it isn’t vocal impressions Romo does, it’s impressions on the athletes on the field.
After playing down his miming skills, Romo gave in and decided to play it up for the camera. His first was Tom Brady.

Romo imitated Brady’s pre-snap look before dropping back and pretening to throw a ball.
“This is silly,” Romo said of his impression.
Romo followed his impression of Brady with one of Peyton Manning, copying all of Manning’s pre-snap hand signals before finishing with an impression of Brett Favre.
Kimmel jokingly said that Romo could host a show of his quarterback impressions in Las Vegas during the offseason.
“I could, but my wife would say ‘go ahead and stay there,'” Romo replied.
Brady seemed to enjoy Romo’s impression but wasn’t impressed with the Favre imitation.
“Not bad @tonyromo,” Brady wrote in a tweet. “Getting some strong spiderman vibes from that @BrettFavre impression.”
