Tony Romo Set To Be A Free Agent

After chalking up some of the most productive regular-season quarterbacking stats off all-time, Tony Romo will become a free agent come Thursday.

Romo injured his back during last season’s preseason, allowing for former Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott to take the helm, and thus, lead the Cowboys to a stellar 13-3 regular season record, but, more importantly, a birth to the playoffs, a feat that hasn’t been accomplished for the Cowboys since 2014.

Thus, while Romo rehabbed himself, putting himself in position to at least make a late-season comeback, Dak was on such a roll that it would of been inconceivable for Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones to make the decision of reinserting Romo as starting quarterback, despite rumors of Jones being loyal to Romo to a fault.

With Romo now preparing to be a free agent, there are two teams interested in the former pro-bowl quarterback: the Houston Texans and the Denver Broncos.

The Broncos last season missed the playoffs with Trevor Siemian as the starting quarterback, and the Texans gave it their all against the New England Patriots in last year’s divisional playoff game despite having Brock Osweiler as quarterback, a gun slinger who has underperformed for the league’s best defense statistically in 2016.

Still, no matter which team Romo will choose, both situations are ideal, especially with their top-notch defenses, so long as he can stay healthy, a situation that hasn’t happened in quite some time.
