The Dallas Cowboys came up short of their aim to win the Super Bowl this season. But they still have a promising future with quarterback Dak Prescott under center. One of the things the Cowboys will address in their offseason is what to do with Tony Romo, as mentioned in NFL rumors ever since Prescott proved himself as a worthy starter in Dallas.
There are speculations early in the Dallas’ offseason that Romo will prefer to be traded to the Denver Broncos. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport stated recently that the team is certain that Romo is not part of their future plans. The NFL analyst also mentioned that the Broncos are not interested in now in acquiring the veteran quarterback.
Tony Romo won’t be in Dallas Cowboys’ uniform next season
“We know he’s not going to be on the Cowboys in 2017. With it all but decided Romo will be playing elsewhere next season, the only questions remaining are where he ends up and how he gets there. Those questions should dominate the discussion this offseason,” Rapoport stated on his show at NFL.com.
Even during the Cowboys’ regular season, there were already talks that Romo will want to play somewhere else since he won’t get any opportunity to play in Dallas with Prescott becoming a star quarterback.
Even if Dallas fell short of the Super Bowl target, they are still one of the NFL contenders next season if they keep their core players. Romo, at 36 years old, is not part of the future of the team and likely want by other NFL squads who wants a veteran presence under center.
Romo played just one game for Dallas this season. He appeared in the season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles and registered 29 passing yards on 3-of-4 completions with a touchdown. That was not enough for NFL squads to see if he can still be a starting quarterback in the NFL, but his experience and leadership is something that other teams may want if they get him via trade or free agency.
