Report: Tony Romo Wants To Be Traded To The Denver Broncos
After being injured during the preseason, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo has yet to see any game action this year, while his (former) backup, rookie QB Dak Prescott, has essentially taken the league by storm and nabbed the starting job in the process.
Last week, Romo held a press conference stating that Dak has earned the right to be the starter on this team and he was applauded for it.
According to Ian Rapoport, if the Cowboys do indeed trade him in the offseason, the Denver Broncos are on the top of his list. The Bears, Jets, and Bills were also listed among his desired destinations.
“Romo, I’m told, already has eyes on the Broncos as a possible destination if general manager John Elway decides Paxton Lynch needs another year and that Trevor Siemian isn’t the guy. Other options, depending on a variety of factors, include the Bears, Jets, Cardinals, and Bills. When the Cowboys do trade him, they’ll still have to deal with about a $20 million salary-cap hit. Romo will have significant say in the matter given that he will need to renegotiate his deal. He, essentially, could veto any move.”
“I think they could get at least a second-round pick for him, or a third that moves up to a second based on playing time. Without a doubt,” an anonymous NFL decision-maker told La Canfora. “Minnesota gave up a first and a four to rent [Sam] Bradford for a few years. Even with the recent injuries, Dallas will get value for Romo.”
Depending on how this season plays out, Tony Romo could also retire as a member of the Dallas Cowboys. Stay tuned.
