One NFL Exec Doesn’t Believe Tony Romo Is Done: Says Teams Will ‘Pay Him to Come Out of Retirement’
Earlier today, it was announced that Tony Romo was retiring from the NFL to pursue a career in broadcasting. This news doesn’t come as a huge shock, as it was previously reported that Romo had garnered interest from the people at CBS, who view him as a possible replacement for Phil Simms.
However, there’s at least one NFL executive who isn’t buying the whole Tony Romo retirement announcement.
According to Adam Schefter, that NFL executive believes that Romo is the perfect option for any team who may find themselves in need of an emergency back-up quarterback. He also believes that, should any team become desperate for a quarterback, they’d be willing to pay Romo whatever it takes for him to come out of retirement:
One NFL exec texted now: “Romo is now every teams emergency backup qb in case your starter gets hurt, pay him to come out of “retirement.’ “

Is this anonymous NFL exec right? Only time will tell.
