Often commentators suggest the Cowboys should keep Romo because he’s only “costing” them this .1M number. The cost is million, which is the base salary Dallas will not have to pay if Tony Romo is elsewhere in 2017.
Romo is moving on from the game and is finally a free man.
But there’s a chance — albeit a small one — he may not be done with football entirely.
“Never say never,” he said, refusing to coin his transition as retirement. You’re always giving yourself wiggle room, but I don’t really envision that as a scenario.” The Cowboys announced they released Romo at his request Tuesday, and owner Jerry Jones, who said before the start of free agency that he would “do right” by his quarterback, quickly claimed he held to his promise.
The Tony Romo saga has reached its conclusion, and a surprising one at that.
The Cowboys’ all-time passing leader is leaving football to join CBS as the network’s lead color commentator in place of Phil Simms.
One thing is for certain though in the life of Tony Romo.
