QB Tony Romo is stepping away from football to pursue a job in broadcasting, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Health was the deciding factor for the soon-to-be 37-year-old, who's suffered a multitude of injuries, most notably to his back. Of course, there's nothing permanent about this decision. Romo could still get the itch to return to the game as we get closer to Week 1. But for now, his 14-year career ends with 34,183 passing yards and 248 TDs. Both marks rank among the top 30 in NFL history.
The Cowboys will release QB Tony Romo on Thursday, according to ESPN. Dallas has been trying to work out a trade but had no leverage. So Romo will get to choose his new team. The Broncos and Texans have seemingly emerged as the front-runners. Both squads would give Romo a shot to at least be a fantasy football spot starter.
The Cowboys have decided to get QB Tony Romo some action in Sunday's finale against the Eagles, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It'll be his 1st regular season appearance since Thanksgiving 2015. QBs Dak Prescott and Mark Sanchez are also expected to play vs. Philly, per Schefter, but the exact rotation remains unclear. It's obviously a situation to avoid in Week 17 fantasy lineups
The Cowboys don't plan on playing QB Tony Romo in Sunday's finale vs. the Eagles. "We don’t feel like we can gain anything from him running a few plays," owner Jerry Jones said. "Not worth the risk.” It's still unclear whether QB Dak Prescott will play the entire game or if Dallas will use 3rd QB Mark Sanchez.
In his 1st statement since injuring his back, Cowboys QB Tony Romo admitted that Dak Prescott is and should remain the team's starter going forward. Prescott "has earned the right to be our QB," Romo said in a heartfelt statement. (You can watch it here, and we'd recommend it.) So that's that. Romo did make it clear that he'd like to continue his football career. That won't happen in Dallas, though. He'll be 37 when the 2017 season kicks off.
