The Tony Romo to Denver Broncos trade rumors just got interesting. A photo of Romo with Broncos general manager John Elway went viral on social media. However, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wants his front office to cool down the trade speculations.
Tony Romo hangs out with John Elway
During House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s victory party over the weekend, Romo was photographed with John Elway. The photo, which was already removed, was posted by Stearns Lending founder, Glenn Stearns, on his Facebook account. However, you can see the photo by clicking this link.
According to The Denver Post, Stearns is a good friend of the Elway family since they were together during President Donald Trump’s inauguration. But the focus of all of this is the involvement of Romo, who lost his starting quarterback job to rookie Dak Prescott this season.
The Tony Romo to Denver rumors started around late last year when Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reported that the veteran QB prefers getting traded to the Broncos. Other teams that could trade for Romo include the Chicago Bears, Buffalo Bills, Arizona Cardinals and New York Jets.
Jerry Jones wants to stop all Tony Romo trade rumors
In an interview with Dallas Morning News during the Senior Bowl practice, Jerry Jones revealed that he wants to take a step back regarding Tony Romo’s future. He also did not want to give any details if he had recent conversations with the 37-year-old QB.
“I’m not going to get into that at all, whether we’ve talked or not. 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,” Jones said.
“I’ve always had a good feeling that I communicated well and that we as an organization communicated well with Tony. I’ve always had that,” he added.
