Tony Romo may have yet to get his ring, but that didn't stop the Cowboys' QB from giving one away.
A wedding date has not been announced.
"It's good news, isn't it?" Cowboys interim coach Jason Garrett said before Friday's practice. "I just want to get the initial invite."
Romo, 30, has not played since breaking his collarbone on Oct. 25. He previously dated singer Jessica Simpson and country music superstar Carrie Underwood.
On the TV station's website, Crawford says she has a passion for sports, loves to run, play basketball, cook and go to Cowboys games. She is the younger sister of the actor Chace Crawford, from the television show Gossip Girl.
