Tony Romo’s chances of playing this season were renewed once his back heeled from injury. Those were soon dashed by Dak Prescott. The Cowboys rookie quarterback who’s stepped in during Romo’s an sense and lead Dallas to a 9-1 record, he dropped Romo into a backup role in which was supposed to be the year for him to make a deep playoff run.
Barring some poor play from Prescott, or an injury, Romo will remain in that role, which has led to the reports today.
the 36-year-old who’s as desperate to play now more than ever, has reportedly acknowledged the Denver Broncos as a potential landing spot for this season or next.
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported this morning that Romo is “eyeing” the Broncos as a possible destination.
Via NFL.com –
Romo, I’m told, already has eyes on the Broncos as a possible destination if general manager John Elway decides Paxton Lynch needs another year and that Trevor Siemian isn’t the guy. Other options, depending on a variety of factors, include the Bears, Jets, Cardinals, and Bills. When the Cowboys do trade him, they’ll still have to deal with about a $20 million salary-cap hit. Romo will have significant say in the matter given that he will need to renegotiate his deal. He, essentially, could veto any move.
Romo is active Sunday vs the Ravens for the first time in an NFL game in 360 days.
