The Tony Romo era is officially over in Dallas. According to Todd Archer, the Cowboys will grant Tony Romo his wish and release him.

 

Romo will cost about $20 million in dead money for extracting Romo off of the roster. Releasing Romo will only save $5 million in cap space for Dallas. Dallas can split the cost in half by making him a June 1st cut but it looks like they will do so now to give Romo the chance to find a home quickly. I’m interested to see what teams will actually pursue Romo.

I’m interested to see what teams will actually pursue Romo. The Texans and Broncos seem to be logical fits. Earlier both teams suggested that they were not interested in dealing for Romo.

The real question is will the Dallas Cowboys regret making this decision because they may have been able to get draft pick compensation instead of nothing.
