Tony Romo knows his time as the main quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys is over. The veteran QB reportedly prefers two teams, the Denver Broncos or Arizona Cardinals, to play for if the Texas team trades him after the season.
Rookie Dak Prescott has taken over the Cowboys’ starting job this 2016 season with Romo injured during the preseason. The Romo injury was a blessing in disguise for the Cowboys, which now leads the league with a 9-1 record through Week 11 of the regular season.
Meanwhile, in a recent press conference, Romo admitted that his time in Dallas is over. Unless Prescott suffers a major injury, Romo will be a back-up for the rest of the season. The veteran is likely traded after the year and Dallas will be forced to deal him in the offseason.
Romo to Broncos or Cardinals
NFL rumors will pick up after the season with regards to Romo. For now, there are reports on which teams he wants to play for. The Arizona Cardinals and Denver Broncos are mentioned with both teams a Super Bowl or playoff contender in the next few years.
Tadd Haislop of the Sporting News has an opinion on destinations for Romo.
“As for Romo’s targets, the Broncos and Cardinals stand out as contenders. Denver’s rookie quarterback, Lynch, evidently hasn’t progressed as quickly as Prescott and could remain on the bench for at least one more year. In Arizona, Carson Palmer’s career is coming to a not-so-pleasant end, and the Cardinals don’t have an obvious plan at QB for the future,” Haislop stated in an article.
NFL retirement for Tony Romo?
The NFL rumors also mentioned that Tony Romo could consider retiring from the NFL. But after Romo’s emotional speech about his status with the Cowboys, the veteran quarterback sounded like he is still motivated to play and prove that he is still a starting QB in the league.
