ESPN's Ed Werder Thinks The Texans Make The Most Sense For Tony Romo

The Romo-to-Houston train continues to gain steam.

ESPN's Ed Werder reported today that Tony Romo is expecting to be released by the Dallas Cowboys and then play for two to three more seasons with another team.

This afternoon, Werder went on ESPN's Russillo & Kanell and laid out which teams make the most sense for the quarterback, who will be 37 during the 2017 NFL season.

Werder, as others have noted, believes the Houston Texans are the team that makes the most sense for the Pro Bowl-caliber quarterback.

The reasons:

  • The Texans have what most would consider to be a Super Bowl-caliber roster outside of the quarterback position
  • Brock Osweiler and Houston's other quarterbacks struggled greatly in 2016 and there doesn't seem to be any real potential there
  • Houston isn't too far from Dallas, where Romo and his family live. Romo and his wife are expecting their third child in August.
  • The Texans are an AFC team and not scheduled to play the Cowboys in 2017

Based on today's reports, it looks like the Cowboys' Romo saga could be wrapped up fairly soon.
