Where Will Tony Romo End Up?
It’s become clear since the midpoint of last season that Dallas would be moving on from longtime starter at quarterback, Tony Romo, in favor of Dak Prescott. Prescott didn’t win the 2016 Offensive Rookie of the Year, that honor went to fellow Cowboy, running back, Ezekiel Elliot, but he did establish himself the starting quarterback in Dallas for years to come.

It’s clear that Romo will be traded or released, but according to a report by Ed Werder, it’s looks like the 37-year-old QB is expected to released, rather than traded:

At this point, it’s Romo’s health that is the biggest question mark regarding the continuation of his career. Injury issues have derailed much of the past two seasons. He’s only played in five of the last 32
However, if he can stay healthy, he could be a difference maker to many teams looking to fill a need at quarterback. Where might Tony Romo end up under center in the fall? We’ll speculate.
The Bills seemingly haven’t found a long-term replacement at quarterback since Jim Kelly left town. Tyrod Taylor is under contract for this season, but there is plenty of speculation that the front office may not pick up his option. Other teams also seem to be interested in Taylor if he were let go.
If Sean McDermott can turn around a defense that severely underperformed last season – the Bills could turn into a contender with an upgrade at the quarterback position. Of course, Romo still has to decide to play in Buffalo, which may be a longshot.
At Bovada, the Bills are currently 66/1 to win the Super Bowl. Those odds would likely improve if Romo were to sign with Buffalo.
Jay Cutler is not expected to be with the Bears this coming season as his deal ended this past season and is a free agent. Chicago makes sense as a landing spot for Romo, particularly with a veteran, old-school coach, like John Fox.
However, Romo has stated that he has probably just 2-3 years left of football and wants to go to a contender. The Bears are one of the worst teams in the league and it doesn’t look much brighter next season. Romo would be a massive upgrade for them at quarterback but a deal probably isn’t too likely.
Chicago is currently going at 100/1 to win Super Bowl 52 at Bovada.
On paper, Denver seems like the best possible fit for Romo. They’re just one year away from a Super Bowl victory. They have a dominant defense and they have a need at the quarterback position, with Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch as their only options.
Elway previously stated that he was happy with the roster for the most part and that they team would be in the playoffs next season. However, it seems highly unlikely that he doesn’t kick the tires a little bit with Romo.
Romo and Elway appeared in a photo at a party together in January at House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s victory party. This further fueled speculation on Romo’s Denver interest.
The Broncos make the most sense if Romo is dead-set on landing with a contender. They’re in the best position per future odds. Bovada has the Broncos at 16/1 to win next year’s Super Bowl.
Not an ideal spot for Romo considering how far they are from contending, but they do fit the bill as a team that needs a veteran starter. Robert Griffin III contract situation is still up in the air and the team is unsure if they will exercise his option this year.
Cleveland is in the same situation as Chicago. Bovada has them at 100/1 to win Super Bowl 52.
