QB - FA
ESPN's Todd Archer is reporting former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo "has not filed retirement papers with the NFL and it is not something that is planned at the moment."
Although Romo has yet to file his retirement papers, Archer does not believe that the signal caller will return to the field "anytime soon." However, the option is, in fact, there if he intends to do so. Currently, Romo is slated to join CBS Sports' "A-Team" alongside Jim Nantz calling the top AFC game of the week during the 2017 regular season.
Recently retired Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo told the media that he doesn't "envision" returning to the NFL. "I wish I could tell you unequivocally, 100 percent, for the rest of my life, I'll never play any sports at all," Romo said via NFL.com. "I don't envision coming back. But I've also seen enough things, you know, from (coach Nick Saban's) 'I'm not going to Alabama' to (Brett Favre's) 'I'm done playing football,' that happen in life."
Romo, who announced his retirement from the NFL and was released by the Cowboys Tuesday, told the media he's "99 percent" retired. However, there is always that one percent chance he could return to the game as a player. Until then, the 36-year-old signal caller has officially accepted the lead broadcast analyst position at CBS Sports, replacing Phil Sims. He will be calling games alongside "longtime" friend Jim Nantz.
The Dallas Cowboys have officially released quarterback Tony Romo on Tuesday.
Romo, who is expected to announce his retirement Wednesday and join CBS as a broadcast analyst for the 2017 season, was officially released by the Cowboys Tuesday afternoon. He was cut with a post-June 1 designation which will allow the club to split his $19.6 million cap hit for 2017 between the next two seasons ($10.7 million in 2017 and $8.9 million in 2018). The 36-year-old signal caller is officially a free agent who could sign with any NFL team if he elects to unretire at any point moving forward.
ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the Dallas Cowboys are "planning" on releasing quarterback Tony Romo on Tuesday. Schefter later added that Romo is "leaving football and going into broadcasting."
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.
Tony Romo has told multiple sources that he will be leaving the NFL and start a career in broadcasting.
Romo has had a great career, hall of fame worthy, but is still missing that elusive Super Bowl. Without many leads to where he will play next season Romo has decided to move on. Romo finishes his career with 34, 183 passing yards, 248 touchdowns, and 117 interceptions.
