Tony Romo Confirms He's Headed To CBS To Begin Broadcasting Career

Tony Romo is CBS-bound. Officially. For real.

Earlier today, it was reported that Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was ending his playing career and going into broadcasting. His reported destination? CBS, to replace Phil Simms as the network's top color analyst.

A few minutes ago, Romo confirmed he is headed to CBS on Twitter.

Additionally, CBS PR announced the soon-to-be 37-year-old is indeed taking over Simms' roll alongside Jim Nantz and Tracy Wolfson on the network's top NFL game of the week. That's a pretty big step.

And here is a statement from Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

We'll update you with any further details that may come out of the CBS press conference.

In 14 NFL seasons, Romo passed for 34,183 yards, 248 touchdowns and 117 interceptions. He owns a 2-4 record as a playoff starter, and his 97.1 career passer rating is fourth-best all-time in the NFL.
