Where will Tony Romo be in 2017?
Tony Romo is currently serving as the Dallas Cowboys’ backup quarterback to rookie Dak Prescott. Barring some poor play from Prescott, or an injury, Romo will remain in the backup role.
Of course, a player of Romo’s caliber doesn’t want to be a backup for very long. Despite being 36, Romo is reportedly feeling as good as he has throughout his career, and the desire to play is as high as ever.
If Romo is to depart from the Cowboys this offseason, where might he end up?
The Denver Broncos have been rumored as a potential landing spot for the talented quarterback. Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported this morning that Romo is “eyeing” the Broncos as a possible destination.

Romo, I’m told, already has eyes on the Broncos as a possible destination if general manager John Elway decides Paxton Lynch needs another year and that Trevor Siemian isn’t the guy. Other options, depending on a variety of factors, include the Bears, Jets, Cardinals, and Bills. When the Cowboys do trade him, they’ll still have to deal with about a $20 million salary-cap hit. Romo will have significant say in the matter given that he will need to renegotiate his deal. He, essentially, could veto any move.
