The Cowboys are hoping a team comes in with a Tony Romo trade offer and hoping the 36-year-old passer would accept the deal, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports (via Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk). Romo is believed to be open to helping Dallas facilitate a trade, but Jerry Jones said he plans to “do right by” the longtime starting passer. Hill also notes Romo would be inclined to sign an playing time-incentive-based contract that would make it easier for a team to justify adding him.
Here’s more from the NFC East:
- One team with interest in Romo said the Cowboys QB will likely have to take a low base salary in the $6MM-$8MM range with per game incentives, Jason Cole of Bleacher Report (on Twitter).
- Redskins free agent wide receiver DeSean Jackson will be looking for deals in the $10MM-12MM per-year range this week, several sources tell Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com (on Twitter). The market for Jackson is heating up and it sounds like he’ll put pen to paper just as soon as he’s allowed.
- The Redskins only just reached out to Pierre Garcon‘s reps this week, John Keim of ESPN.com tweets. With many expected suitors, it remains to be seen if the Redskins can keep him. It’s also not clear how badly they want him back.
