Tony Romo has brilliant years behind him with his time with the Dallas Cowboys. He’s a regular choice at the top QB’s of the league. Although he has not had much success during post-season frays, he’s broken many of the team’s records.
There is no doubt that the Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones likes Tony Romo. The latter, at 36 years of age, still has a good two or three years of good football ahead of him. The only thing that hampers his game, and has done so much already in his career are his major injuries.
Hit with another back injury, Tony Romo lost his top spot with the Cowboys to Dak Prescott. Romo has had four traumatic injuries to his spine, and won’t be getting his designation as top QB again. The remaining question now is, will the Dallas Cowboys keep him as a highly expensive back up?
He is set to hit the Dallas Cowboys’ salary cap with $24.7 million. Rumors are circulating the NFL as to what team he might move to before the new season starts. Who’s willing to sign up an aging, injury laden star?
Tony Romo trade talks
Among the possible NFL teams Romo could end up with are the Steelers, if Ben Roethlisberger retires, according to a report by 247Sports. They may be taking a lot of risks in signing up an injury prone star in Tony Romo, but he could do well still for a couple of years, and extend their “time to find/groom a future franchise signal caller.”
Plus Romo and Todd Haley go way back in ‘06 when “Romo took over as starter for the Cowboys and Haley was the offensive coordinator at the time.” This could factor in during the transition period if they decide to trade for him.
Another possibility is Tony Romo ending up with the Broncos. Rumors started when a photo of the QB and John Elway surfaced. Is there something in the works?
“In John Elway I trust. And If he does bring him over, I think Tony Romo will fit good in [new offensive coordinator Mike] McCoy’s system. It’s a no-huddle, up-tempo offense. I think that it’s gonna be similar to the Cowboys,” Emmanuel Sanders said in a report by the NYDailyNews, on the benefits of landing a Romo trade.
Only Jerry Jones knows
There are a number of possibilities surrounding Tony Romo’s situation. The Cowboys are talking about it unofficially.
“I’m sure as we move forward, obviously, there’s two really important people in this mix. First and foremost will be Jerry and then, of course, Tony.” Stephen Jones said.
So to cut to the chase, what does Jerry Jones think about the Cowboys’ dillemma on Romo? “I’m not going to get into that at all — whether we’ve talked or not,” Jerry Jones said according to CBSSports. “We’re at a juncture now that we need to just cool it in our public conversations about what we’re going to be doing or not doing there with Tony.”
