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).

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.
