Philadelphia, PA – In light of new developments prior to Sunday’s game, a Dallas Cowboys team representative announced that Larry Donovan, owner and operator of Donovan Family Funeral Home and Cremation services, had been signed to the 53-man active roster.
The move was described as “precautionary” and was in no way due to the announcement that Tony Romo would play several snaps in the second half against the division rival Philadelphia Eagles.
“We’re always on the lookout for great talent, and we think Mr. Donovan can be of great benefit to this roster for Sunday’s game,” the team representative said. “His funeral home has received solid reviews from Yelp and his quick, professional turnaround of the deceased can only help this organization as we move forward.”
The representative also said it was “purely a coincidence” that Romo was being fitted for a new suit before the week 17 matchup.
Team representatives denied reports that a carpenter had also been brought in to take Romo’s measurements and several shipments of pine boards had been delivered to Cowboys stadium.
