Cowboys Have Not Pondered Tony Romo Trade

Now that Dak Prescott has been anointed as the Cowboys’ starting quarterback, speculation has been rampant about Tony Romo‘s future with the organization. If Prescott’s success continues, it certainly stands to reason that the Cowboys could trade Romo to allow him to start elsewhere and allow themselves to add a draft pick. However, the Cowboys have not yet considered that possibility, according to Jason Cole of Bleacher Report (video link). Tony Romo

There’s a strong belief within the organization that they may need Romo around at some point. Meanwhile, one league source believes that the Cowboys will not be able to retain the veteran if Prescott continues to play well. Two other league sources say that Romo will be in high demand this offseason because he offers experience at a notoriously thin position and he comes at a reasonable salary for the next three years.

Of course, the Cowboys have lots of time to ponder the possibility of trading Romo. Now that the trade deadline has passed, Dallas is in no rush to gauge the market and, as Cole cautioned, circumstances can certainly change between now and the end of the season. If Prescott were to falter badly or get injured, that could open the door for Romo this year and make him a necessary piece for 2017.

    Romo is just like a skinny hawg at this point. Worth nothin. Him been getting worse for years, making that team lose games. If ya can’t shake he snake, use the rake y’all. Dippin.

    Why would you trade away a quality back-up with a decade of institutional knowledge? He does the team – and Dak – more good staying than trading him away…

      Because you can trim cap space while potentially getting some value for him

      • Lee morrell

        You can’t buy that kind of knowledge…he would be unbelievably invaluable to Dak moving forward…an on-the-field position coach…

          I agree with Lee here. Romo will be ridiculously valuable over the next few years as a “coach” or mentor to Dark Prescott. If I were romo I’d retire and sign on as a QB coach, which Jerry Jones would be very happy to do

    • So Jerry is going to pay a back up $20 million for the next 3 years ?

    It make no sense to keep him next year. Not only could it cause a division/ tension amongst the team,Romo has a lot of trade value to a team that believes they are only a QB away. Look at what Sam Bradford brought in the trade with the Vikings. Romo is worth at minimum a first pick and there will be a number of teams willing to bid for him in the offseason

      I realize it leaves them with no real backup and a wasted season if Dax gets hurt but the guy is young and should be fine. A QB injury for any team ruins most seasons anyways
