Report: Tony Romo Yet To File Retirement Papers
To be fair, it’s only been 8 days since Tony Romo announced his retirement from the league.
Last week, the former Dallas Cowboys QB hung up his cleats to pursue a career in broadcasting, despite all the rumors of him possibly heading to either the Denver Broncos or Houston Texans.
He’s been quite busy as he suited up on Tuesday night to join the Dallas Mavericks for one day as an honorary member of the NBA team, participating in shoot-around, a photo-op, layup drills, and then introduced to the fans.
Romo has been so busy that he’s yet to file his retirement papers with the NFL, reports ESPN’s Todd Archer. He also reported that Romo filing those papers are not in his plans as of right now. This doesn’t mean he will attempt to make a comeback, but it does leave the door open for a possible return to the field.
The Cowboys relinquished his rights by releasing him, so Romo would be a free agent upon his return…if it were to happen.
