Houston Texans: No Asking Price Too High for Tony Romo

The Dallas Cowboys will release the veteran quarterback when the new National Football League year officially opens on Thursday, according to multiple reports. For his career, he has a QB-rating of 97.1 and finishes with the most yards and passing touchdowns in Cowboys' franchise history.

The rumor mill continues to spin, as talks of Tony Romo heading north to play for the Denver Broncos becomes more real with every day.

A release will free about $5 million in cap space for the Cowboys, who can split the dead money from a $19 million hit over two seasons. By the time Romo was able to return, rookie quarterback Dak Prescott had led Dallas to an 8-1 start. The good news is that Romo can now choose the team that is the best fit.

Romo underwent two back surgeries in 2013, and suffered a pair of transverse process fractures the following year.

Romo doesn't scare me that much because he can't stay on the field, but I would still prefer that he didn't end up with the Texans. Dak Prescott is their future at QB, so it didn't make sense to have a almost $25 million cap hit for Romo. Which means that wherever he signs next is a team that a lot of Cowboys fans are going to find themselves cheering for throughout the 2017-2018 season and beyond. It didn't happen, and now Romo is free (barring an unspoken agreement on Jones's "do-right rule") to sign wherever he pleases. It will be expensive and it will likely put the team in a financial squeeze (at least until Osweiler can be offloaded), but it will be worth it.
