FOX Is Trying To Get Tony Romo To Take A Broadcasting Job

The network wants him to replace John Lynch, according to a report.

Tony Romo has options.

One option - perhaps an unlikely one - for the soon-to-be 37-year-old quarterback is to retire and take a TV job.

FOX is reportedly pushing hard for the Dallas Cowboys quarterback to join their network as both an analyst and a color commentator.

From ESPN:

Sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Fox Sports would like Romo to be an analyst, replacing John Lynch, who left to become the San Francisco 49ers' general manager in late January.

The news comes after the Cowboys opted not to release Romo on Thursday, the first day of the league year, and will look to potentially trade him.

Retirement has always been among Romo's options. He turns 37 next month and has battled through a number of injuries, including collarbone and back ailments that have limited him to parts of five games the past two seasons.

Romo would likely be great on TV, but is he ready to give up the chance to go after a Super Bowl? Most likely not.
