Romo Expects to Be Released by Cowboys, Not Traded


ESPN's Ed Werder reports that people close to Tony Romo say the Dallas Cowboys quarterback expects to be released, not traded.

Romo, 37, carries a $24.7 million cap hit for 2017, so it makes no sense for Dallas to retain Romo as a backup to Dak Prescott. And it is unlikely that the Cowboys can find a partner for a trade because of Romo's large contract and the difficulty in determining his value in the trade market due to his age and injury history.

Werder speculates that the team's Romo might be interested in are the Kansas City Chiefs, the Denver Broncos, and the Houston Texans.
