In an unforeseen turn of events, Romo is retiring from the NFL after 13 seasons and will enter the broadcasting booth. The 36-year-old signal caller, who has battled injuries throughout his career, is walking away from the game despite the fact that the Cowboys are planning on releasing him on Tuesday. Upon his retirement, he is expected to land with either Fox or CBS as a broadcast analyst.
