Here’s what the Dallas Cowboys quarterback expects to happen.
Tony Romo doesn’t plan on being a member of the Dallas Cowboys next season.
According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, the quarterback, who will turn 37 in late April, expects to be released by Jerry Jones. He wants to keep playing in the NFL, though, and says he believes he can start at quarterback for another team for two to three more seasons.

A mid-January report said that the Denver Broncos are Romo’s “No. 1 spot,” but other reports have said John Elway doesn’t have any interest.
The Houston Texans might be the best landing spot for the Pro Bowl-caliber quarterback.
One Dallas Cowboys reporter thinks Houston is the best place for him.
The Texans have won three straight division titles with, politely, uneven quarterback play. They have a good running back in Lamar Miller. They have a solid receiver in DeAndre Hopkins. And they have the best statistical defense in the NFL and will welcome back J.J. Watt in 2017. Coach Bill O’Brien can have an innovative offense if he has a quarterback that can run it, and Romo has that capability.
Osweiler is guaranteed another $16 million from the Texans in 2017, but nothing is impossible when it comes to contracts in the NFL.
If the financials can work all the way around, Houston would make the most sense for Romo. It gives him the best chance to win right now.
Where do you want to see Romo playing this fall?
