Tony Romo Won’t Rule Out NFL Comeback

The Texans were said to have interest in Tony Romo and we now know that interest was mutual. Romo has chosen broadcasting over playing, but if he moved forward as a quarterback, Romo says the Texans would have been his top choice. Tony Romo (vertical)

Obviously Houston was at the top of the list of teams that I looked at,” Romo told reporters on a conference call today.

Romo’s affinity for the Texans might not mean much right now, but it is perhaps something to file away in case we have a Brett Favre situation on our hands. Romo stressed that he could “play tomorrow” if he wanted to, so it sounds like we’ll be in for at least a couple of years of will he/won’t he speculation. When asked if this is really the end of the line, Romo said he’s “99%” retired and “never say never” to the possibility of a comeback. He also said that he’s probably healthier now than he was in 2014.

The former Cowboys QB “went back and forth many times” on playing versus retiring, but says he ultimately decided to transition to the booth because of the great opportunity presented by CBS. Only time will tell if Romo can be coaxed into playing again.

    Comeback to win a Super Bowl as a backup in PHI,NYG, or WAS. Actually none of them will win in the next decade but it would be funny to see him in those jerseys.
