Tony Romo might one day quarterback for the Denver Broncos.
Romo looks like one of the hottest trade chips of the upcoming offseason after Dak Prescott stole the starting gig for the Dallas Cowboys. While gracious in passing the torch, Romo isn’t close to hanging up the cleats.
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported Sunday Romo has his eyes set on a team such as the Broncos:
Talk about the perfect fit. The Broncos haven’t been overly aggressive in fixing the position after Peyton Manning’s departure, with Trevor Siemian struggling at times to keep the team afloat.
Romo would fix this in a hurry and it’s not hard to see why he’d want to go there—weapons such as Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders await, not to mention a Von Miller-led defense.
Though Romo is 36 years old, it will be hard for teams to ignore a guy who threw for 34 touchdowns to nine interceptions in 2014. His health is an issue after only playing four games in 2015 and sitting on the shelf this year. But for the right price, almost any team in the league would take the gamble.
This is merely the first of many surefire Romo rumors to come. But the Broncos make too much sense to discredit, especially if Romo truly has a say in where he goes.
