The speculation continues to run rampant about the immediate future for veteran quarterback Tony Romo of the Dallas Cowboys. All signs point to the Cowboys parting ways with Romo in one way or another during the NFL offseason as they move forward with Dak Prescott.
Another option for Romo is to retire and take one of the many opportunities coming his way to be in front of a camera as a color analyst. Reportedly, Romo wants to continue his NFL career, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter:
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo remains determined to play in 2017 and has no plans to retire, league sources told ESPN.
With no shortage of interest in Romo's services, the veteran gunslinger should find it rather easy to find another starting job under center in the NFL. The Cowboys, however, have yet to make a decision on what to do with Romo. Parting ways appear to be a foregone conclusion, but how it is done remains to be seen.
At this point, trading or releasing Romo seem to be the options in play. Trading Romo may be a difficult proposition consider the size of his contract and years left on his deal. Simply releasing the veteran may be the better way to go for the Cowboys or at least the easiest way to move on.
The Denver Broncos have consistently been mentioned as a potential destination for Romo. General manager John Elway may be on the lookout for a quarterback to shoulder the load under center while young quarterbacks Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian learn from a proven veteran.
Other notable teams potentially looking for a new starting quarterback during the NFL offseason include the Chicago Bears, San Francisco 49ers, New York Jets, Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, Houston Texans, Los Angeles Rams, and Arizona Cardinals.
