NFL Rumors: Broncos Reportedly ‘Not Pursuing’ QB Tony Romo

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Tony Romo saga continues. The Dallas Cowboys have yet to release the veteran quarterback nor make a trade to send him elsewhere.

Over the past few months, the Denver Broncos have been rumored as a potential landing spot for the longtime Cowboys quarterback. Although the team appeared comfortable moving forward with their youth movement of Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch, the rumors persisted, but it may have come to an end or at least stalled.

According to Jeff Darlington of ESPN, the Broncos are not currently pursuing Romo to be their starter:

In 13 seasons with the Cowboys, Romo threw for 34,183 yards, 248 touchdowns, and 117 interceptions. Romo was the team’s backbone ever since taking over as the starter under center for Drew Bledsoe.

Now, with the Cowboys moving forward with breakout rookie Dak Prescott as their starter, Romo’s career has been left in limbo. The star quarterback has plenty of opportunities make the jump in front of the camera with talk of networks being interested in his services, but he seems reluctant to make that move with a desire to keep playing in the NFL.

As Darlington suggests, it may be the Houston Texans or bust for Romo. The Texans give the veteran quarterback an opportunity to extend his career behind a decent offensive line while also having one of the best defenses in the league to hold leads.

With the Texans recently parting ways with Brock Osweiler, there’s an opportunity for Romo to come in with a go-to wide receiver in DeAndre Hopkins, a solid offensive line and a formidable defense to do damage in the AFC.

Whether Romo-to-the-Texans comes to fruition remains to be seen, but it still appears to be an option.
