For whatever reason, Tony Romo is still on the Cowboys roster.
The Dallas Cowboys have handled the Tony Romo situation horribly, hanging on to the quarterback for no reason whatsoever.
The reason? Well, they are holding out hope they can trade the 37-year old quarterback for something in return.
But this is not sitting well with Romo, who has gotten more and more frustrated and according to reports, he is now distancing himself from teammates and coaches that yet to show support for him:
Tony Romo has taken situation very personally in Dallas and has distanced himself from teammates and coach who were “Team Dak” per source.

This does not look good for Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys at all who gave the starting job to Dak Prescott after Romo injured himself during last summer’s preseason. That decision was fine, as Dak took the NFL by storm. However, the team should grant Romo’s release and set him free to join another team.
Instead, they are stringing out hope that some time would pick up the phone and call for a trade. Something that seems unlikely, given the fact that every team already knows the situation in Dallas:
This #Cowboys situation with Tony Romo isn’t ending any time soon. It could continue not only up to the draft, but past the draft. Buckle up

For now, Tony Romo is still a “member” of the Dallas Cowboys but one thing is for certain, he’s not going to be the team’s starting quarterback in 2017. So what exactly is he still doing here?
