The future of Tony Romo

Tony Romo is expected to be released by the Dallas Cowboys after thirteen seasons with the team.

The emergence of quaterback Dak Prescott together with Romo’s age and recent injury history, are the likely causes for the team’s decision. The Cowboys would like to get some of their investment back on a trade, but his contract makes it very difficult to execute. Romo signed a signed a six-year, $119.5 million deal in 2013 and has three years left in that contract.

Possible destinations for Romo are the Houston Texans, Denver Broncos, Buffalo Bills, Kansas City Chiefs, Arizona Cardinals and Chicago Bears. According to Colin Cowherd, host of the “The Herd” the only two teams with a shot at Romo are the Houston Texans and the Arizona Cardinals because they are closer to home, have offensive minded coaches and are title contenders.

Tony Romo is the all-time leader in passing yards (34,183) for the Cowboys, but would be leaving Dallas with only two playoff victories to his name.
