Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo expects the team to release him in the offseason rather than the team trading him, ESPN reported Thursday. Romo reportedly expects to be a starter for at least two or three more seasons.
The issue for Romo is whether he could stay healthy for that long. The 36-year-old missed 12 games in 2015 and every game in 2016. He then lost his job to Dak Prescott when he was ready to return to the field.
Dallas might not be willing to give Romo the pick of the litter when it comes to his next team. However, trading him would be tough because he’s due $14 million in 2017, $19.5 million in 2018 and $20.5 million in 2019.
If Romo can still play, he would definitely be a vital asset. There are plenty of teams that could use his services.
