Cowboys Reportedly Expected To Trade Tony Romo To The Broncos or Texans
What a drastic turn of events following what was originally reported yesterday. Despite the rumors and with two hours remaining until the official start of free agency, the Dallas Cowboys are actually in the process of trading Tony Romo rather than releasing him and freeing him up to sign with whomever he wants.
According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, there are two teams in particular that are in the running for Romo’s services.
Cowboys now expect to trade Tony Romo to Broncos or Texans, sources say. Broncos talking with Jets about Trevor Siemian.

Now getting some backpedal on Siemian/Jets/Bromcos talk. But Romo as a trade rather than release is still alive. — Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) March 9, 2017
The Texans and Broncos went head to head last year for the right to sign Brock Osweiler and we all saw how that turned out. Neither team really benefited as Osweiler struggled all year and Broncos QB Trevor Siemian stepped in and struggled as well.
The Texans have $21.4 million in cap space while the Broncos have $36.4 million.
