The Tony Romo era has come to an end in Dallas as the Dallas Cowboys are set to release the 4-time Pro Bowler on Thursday. After injuring his back in a preseason game last season, fourth round draft pick, Dak Prescott took over the starting QB position and took, “America’s Team,” back to the playoffs.

According to the BMO Show,
Romo will have, “significant interest in signing w/HOU or DEN as we’ve been reporting. Wants to win now.”
One team is may take their chances with the 10+ year vet.
According to 9News,
One agent source also told 9News that Romo’s preferred choice is the Broncos. Denver is not the only team expected to pursue Romo, though. There was buzz at the NFL Combine the Houston Texans would also be interested, but would they give up on Brock Osweiler after paying him $21 million in 2016, his first year with the team, and another $16 million guaranteed this season?
Think Romo should just hang his jersey up and kick back with the beautiful kids and enjoy retirement. Romo played over 10 season with the Cowboys after signing undrafted in 2003. Romo broke Dallas Cowboys team records including most games with at least 300 passing yards and games with three or more touchdown passes. He will truly be missed in Dallas.
