Something tells me the Washington Redskins was definitely on the list of teams to contact Tony Romo about his availability.
Over the weekend, the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback dazzled fans on TV during the AFC Championship game after he gave great insight about the game as well as predicting play after play before it actually happened on the field.
When Richard Dietsch of the Athletic had asked Romo about his potential future in the NFL given how knowledgeable he is about the game, the CBS analyst revealed that teams are actually contacting him to come out of retirement.
“You are 38 years old, younger than some of the quarterbacks playing in the National Football League. When was the last time someone contacted you with a legitimate offer to play?
There are legitimate contract offers and there are, “Hey, what are you thinking?” (laughs).”
Romo gave a detailed response as to why he thinks he’s becoming a successful broadcaster:
“I don’t pretend to have all the answers. I do think in some ways I have studied the game for 20 years and, at my core, I have tried to improve and get better at football. I think that has really helped me do this job, where I just know a lot of stuff that I have thought about over the years. It gives you a history…”
Although Romo was never able to take the Dallas Cowboys to the promised land, it should be noted that he went undrafted when he signed with the Cowboys and compiled a 78-49 record with 248 touchdowns and 117 interceptions in his career.
That’s pretty damn impressive for an un-drafted quarterback.
