Tony Romo is now one-plus seasons removed from retiring as an NFL quarterback. The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback announced in early 2017 that he was retiring from the game and moving into a broadcasting role.

The move into broadcasting has gone greatly for the former Cowboys star. He's CBS' No. 1 analyst and the early reviews on his broadcasting career is tremendous.

"I've been watching the Bills-Vikings game. For those of you watching, you saw once again Tony Romo foreshadow as he noted Minnesota had no safeties prior to the Allen-to-Croom TD. This is just my opinion: Romo is the best NFL TV analyst and has been for some time now," media critic Richard Deitsch tweeted.

While Romo's broadcasting career is going swell, there are still some Cowboys fans hoping he would return to the field. Dallas is off to a brutal start this season and Dak Prescott has not looked like the franchise quarterback many thought he would be when he replaced Romo. A return is not happening - well, probably. Romo was asked about a "hypothetical" return to the field during a radio appearance today. He said his health would not prevent that from happening.

So there you go.

Romo and the Cowboys will be featured on the NFL Network later this week. Romo is the latest subject of the acclaimed "A Football Life" series.
