The NFL season has officially come to an end with the New England Patriots coming out on top against the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl 51. With the NFL offseason underway, one of the biggest storylines will involve the Dallas Cowboys and the seemingly imminent departure of veteran quarterback Tony Romo.
A few days before Super Bowl 51, Dak Prescott talked about Romo's future in the NFL. The Offensive Rookie of the Year thinks it'll be difficult to see his mentor playing somewhere else next season.
"Whatever makes him happy," Prescott told Nate Burleson on Good Morning Football on NFL Network on Friday. "If he wants to play, he still got another year, couple years in him, then I want to see him end up in Denver, or on a good team, a team that adding him makes that much better. But to me he's a Cowboy, it'd be hard to see him in a different uniform."
At this point, it may be only a matter of time before Romo is either traded or released by the Cowboys. Romo has stated that he wants to continue his NFL career and there will be no shortage of teams vying for his services during the offseason.
The Denver Broncos have been mentioned as a possible destination for Romo on more than one occasion. Denver may be looking for another veteran to help get the offense back on track in the same way Peyton Manning did in 2012. Romo fits the bill and could be bound for the Mile High City if a trade can be worked out with the Cowboys or if he's ultimately made a free agent.
As for Prescott, the Cowboys brass intends to build around the promising young quarterback as well as running back Ezekiel Elliott. Dallas has a bright future with these two young stars leading the way behind arguably the best offensive line in the NFL.
