The inevitable is upon us. Tony Romo’s release from the Dallas Cowboys.
The top story of the ongoing NFL offseason is the future of Cowboys QB Tony Romo, and according to this report, a significant move towards his future not being with America’s Team is upon us. Today, Wednesday March 8th, 2017, could be Romo’s last with the Dallas Cowboys.
Hearing there is a very strong likelihood that barring a strong trade offer the Cowboys release Tony Romo tomorrow. Let the chase begin
Update: Adam Schefter and Todd Archer are also reporting that the Cowboys will release Tony Romo on Thursday 3/9.
Cowboys are releasing Tony Romo on Thursday, sources tell @toddarcher and me. Let the Romo recruiting in Houston and Denver begin.
A Tony Romo release has felt like a foregone conclusion for a few weeks now, truthfully ever since Dak Prescott – in Romo’s own words – earned the job that belonged to #9 for the past decade.
Cowboys Nation shouldn’t expect a trade at this point, as other teams have expected Romo to be released all along. The bidding war for his services could begin within 24 hours, and initial interest has been sparked by the Houston Texans and Denver Broncos.
The Cowboys and their fans respectively will still have to move forward this offseason in managing the cap to retain some key free agents (Brice Butler was re-signed this morning) and preparing for the 2017 NFL Draft.
