NFL | Tony Romo has not filed retirement papers

Wed, 12 Apr 2017 15:08:49 -0700

Retired QB Tony Romo has not filed his retirement papers with the NFL at this point and does not plan to file the papers in the near future.

Fantasy Tip: Romo is leaving open the chance of playing in 2017 if the right situation comes up, so owners will need to monitor the situation. Romo has the chance to be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback with the right team if he does decide to continue his career.

NFL | Tony Romo officially takes job with CBS

Tue, 04 Apr 2017 19:20:54 -0700

Retired NFL QB Tony Romo officially accepted a job with CBS Sports Tuesday, April 4, to be their lead television analyst for the upcoming year. He'll work alongside Jim Nantz on the station's No. 1 broadcast team.

Fantasy Tip: This should immediately put to rest any thoughts that maybe Romo would change his mind about retiring and latch on elsewhere. Fantasy owners can officially take the 11-year veteran off their list of potential draft day targets.

Cowboys | Tony Romo officially released

Tue, 04 Apr 2017 12:16:05 -0700

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo was officially released Tuesday, April 4.

Fantasy Tip: The Dallas Cowboys are officially Dak Prescott's team to quarterback, as if that was a question anyway. The Denver Broncos and Houston Texans, the two teams most heavily linked to Romo, will stick with their quarterbacks, at least for the time being. No Denver or Houston quarterback, however, is in QB1 territory.

Cowboys | Tony Romo will be released

Tue, 04 Apr 2017 10:55:03 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Dallas Cowboys will release retired QB Tony Romo as a post-June 1 cut, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: This is a formality for Dallas, but it does at least leave the door cracked open for Romo to freely sign with a team of his choosing. It would be a dramatic twist to this saga, and an unlikely one at that.

Cowboys | Tony Romo retiring

Tue, 04 Apr 2017 05:26:01 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo decided to retire Tuesday, April 4, to pursue a career in broadcasting, according to sources. Dallas is expected to designate Romo a post-June 1 release, softening the blow against the Cowboys' cap this season. Instead of counting $24.7 million in 2017, Romo would count $10.7 million this year and $8.9 million in 2018. The Cowboys would gain $14 million in cap space, but it would not become available until June 2.

Fantasy Tip: Romo could still wind up returning in an emergency situation if a starting quarterback goes down in camp. While you should remove him from your draft boards, he could re-emerge as a QB2 later.

Broncos | Tony Romo not trade option for Denver

Mon, 03 Apr 2017 16:37:16 -0700

The Denver Broncos will not trade for Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo even though the Cowboys have allowed Romo to talk with other teams, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos have said they are happy with Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch on their roster and may not pursue Romo even if he is a free agent. Siemian and Lynch are expected to compete for the starting job during training camp, but the winner of the job probably should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Texans | Houston will not trade for Tony Romo

Mon, 03 Apr 2017 16:30:38 -0700

The Houston Texans will not trade for Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo even though the Cowboys have allowed Romo to talk with other teams, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: The Texans likely do not want to take on Romo's contract and will wait for him to be released before they pursue him. He probably would be the team's starting quarterback in 2017 if he joins the Texans and could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback.

Cowboys | Tony Romo can talk to teams

Mon, 03 Apr 2017 12:52:07 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo has been given permission by owner Jerry Jones to speak with other teams, according to a source. Romo or his agent can schedule a workout, visit or physical with any prospective team. Furthermore, interested teams are only limited to conversations regarding Romo's 2017-19 contract.

Fantasy Tip: The wheels are finally starting to turn for Romo to possibly play for someone other than the Cowboys. The Houston Texans and Denver Broncos are the two most favored teams to court Romo, but nothing is set in stone. Even if he does sign with someone, his health is a major question mark. Tread carefully in fantasy drafts as he has only played in five games the last two years.

Cowboys | Mid-April ending point in Tony Romo saga?

Fri, 31 Mar 2017 12:01:37 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo should have a good idea regarding his status with the Cowboys by April 17 - the start of the team's offseason workout program - according to former sports agent and CBS Sports' Joel Corry.

Fantasy Tip: Team owner and general manager Jerry Jones stated earlier in the week he anticipates a resolution with Romo before the start of training camp in late July, which is most likely posturing on his end. It seems much more likely he'll be released closer to Corry's projected date than Jones', if only so all parties involved can avoid the awkwardness of the situation. The Houston Texans remain Romo's most likely suitor, assuming he doesn't end up taking a network job.

Cowboys | Training camp signifies Tony Romo deadline

Tue, 28 Mar 2017 17:12:50 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo will know his fate by training camp at the latest, according to owner Jerry Jones. Jones said he has talked to Romo in the last couple of days, saying the veteran quarterback "has options."

Fantasy Tip: It's somewhat of a cryptic message from Jones, but Romo's options are essentially that he will be cut or traded and play for another team or simply retire. He is not expected to remain with the Cowboys. Romo has QB1 potential when he is healthy, but he has only played in five games in the last two seasons. He's just too risky to be drafted at this point, especially considering his ambiguous future.

Broncos | Tony Romo unlikely to join Broncos

Mon, 27 Mar 2017 15:56:56 -0700

Denver Broncos general manager John Elway said it is not the team's intention to pursue Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo even if he is released this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos seem to be happy with Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch as their options at quarterback in 2017. Both players received starts this past season and likely will compete for the job during training camp. The winner of the competition probably can be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Cowboys | Tony Romo's situation may drag on

Mon, 27 Mar 2017 15:42:54 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo's status with the Cowboys may not be resolved until after the 2017 NFL Draft, in the opinion on NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: The Houston Texans appear to be the most likely candidate for Romo if he decides to continue his playing career. He would be the starting quarterback if he joins the Texans and would have some nice weapons to work with on offense. He could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues next season if he is healthy.

Texans | Houston only option for Tony Romo?

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 13:53:21 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo believes the Houston Texans and retirement are his options next season if he is released by the Cowboys, according to sources. The Denver Broncos are not pursing Romo, but they are not ruling out the possibility of signing him.

Fantasy Tip: Romo is still part of the Cowboys at this point, but he likely will be released at some point this offseason. He would be the starting quarterback if he joins the Texans and could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback in 2017 if he plays for Houston.

Broncos | Denver has not talked about Tony Romo

Mon, 13 Mar 2017 12:31:17 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo has not been discussed by the Denver Broncos, according to head coach Vance Joseph. General manager John Elway and Joseph have both emphasized that they are comfortable with QBs Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch as their quarterbacks.

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos do, or did, make sense for Romo, but it also makes sense to stick with what they have in Siemian and Lynch. Siemian figures to begin offseason activities as the starter, but Lynch won't be the backup without a fight. That being said, neither is a starting fantasy quarterback as of now.

Cowboys | Tony Romo trade not likely

Sat, 11 Mar 2017 18:54:08 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is not expected to be traded, according to league sources, and Dallas is not willing to trade Romo somewhere he doesn't want to play.

Fantasy Tip: Romo is likely to be released if a trade isn't worked out, so he could still end up starting for another team in 2017.

Broncos | Denver not eyeing Tony Romo?

Fri, 10 Mar 2017 18:39:23 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is not guaranteed to be pursued by the Denver Broncos, even if Romo becomes a free agent.

Fantasy Tip: Romo's fate remains up in the air, but he is still expected to be the starter somewhere in 2017. He is injury prone, but he has QB1 upside. Grab him as a fantasy backup if you have a stable QB1.

Cowboys | Tony Romo to be traded?

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 11:12:26 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is expected to be traded to the Denver Broncos or Houston Texans, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Romo was expected to be released, but a trade would obviously be more beneficial to the Cowboys. The Broncos and Texans are the main suitors. Trevor Siemian and Brock Osweiler are not starting caliber fantasy quarterbacks anyway. Romo, on the other hand, can achieve QB1 status when he is on the field. The key is for him to be on the field.

Wed, 08 Mar 2017 11:07:50 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo will be released Thursday, March 9, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Romo is expected to receive interest from multiple teams including the Denver Broncos and Houston Texans. He should be a starter no matter where he signs and has a chance to be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he is healthy.

Broncos | Denver expected to pursue Tony Romo

Mon, 06 Mar 2017 15:06:52 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo will receive interest from the Denver Broncos if he is released this offseason, according to sources. One source said Denver is Romo's preferred choice if he is cut.

Fantasy Tip: Romo likely will receive interest from multiple teams, but the Broncos could give him a chance to make the playoffs in 2017. He would have a solid receiver tandem to work with in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders but would have to stay healthy. Romo could be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he signs with the Broncos.

Broncos | Two budgets in mind?

Sun, 05 Mar 2017 23:20:52 -0800

The Denver Broncos may be operating with two budgets in mind in case they have a chance to sign Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo, if and when he hits free agency.

Fantasy Tip: Mike Klis observes the Broncos need more help on the offensive and defensive lines, but a second budget exists in case the Broncos end up with Romo. If he becomes a Bronco, he instantly turns into Denver's top QB and a decent mid-range QB1 option on most draft boards.

Redskins | Tony Romo won't consider Washington?

Sat, 04 Mar 2017 18:57:42 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo will abide by the "do-right rule" if released and won't sign with the Washington Redskins, according to owner Jerrry Jones. "It is implied that we will work in the best way we can for the mutual interest of Tony and the Cowboys," Jones said.

Fantasy Tip: The Cowboys can't actually forbid Romo from signing with Washington if released, but don't expect him to end up there. If Romo does go elsewhere, he could produce QB1 numbers if he can manage to stay healthy.

Cowboys | Dallas not ruling out Tony Romo return

Sat, 04 Mar 2017 13:31:42 -0800

Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said he has not ruled out the possibility of keeping QB Tony Romo on the roster.

Fantasy Tip: Most people believe that Romo will be released at some point, but the Cowboys have not made a decision at this point. Romo likely would find a starting job if he hits the free-agent market. He could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback depending on his team and if he can stay healthy.

Texans | Houston a player for Tony Romo

Fri, 03 Mar 2017 18:27:18 -0800

The Houston Texans are regarded as a strong contender to land Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo, according to several sources around the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: Romo would be an obvious upgrade over Brock Osweiler for Houston, and if he could manage to stay healthy, QB1 production wouldn't be out of the question.

Rams | 'No chance' LA Rams woo Tony Romo

Fri, 03 Mar 2017 12:18:24 -0800

Updating a previous report, the Los Angeles Rams will not "test the waters" on Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo should he become available, according to team sources.

Fantasy Tip: La Canfora reported earlier Friday that the Rams and San Francisco 49ers were two teams who could emerge as suitors for Romo. The Rams were never a realistic option, as Los Angeles isn't going to bring in a veteran to block 2016 No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff from developing. The Houston Texans and Denver Broncos are still Romo's most likely landing spots.

Cowboys | Tony Romo drawing interest from Rams, 49ers

Fri, 03 Mar 2017 10:15:14 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo appears the most interested in joining the Houston Texans, Kansas City Chiefs or Denver Broncos should he get released, but CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora is reporting the Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers are "doing work" on the veteran quarterback and could emerge as viable candidates for his services.

Fantasy Tip: The Texans and Broncos still seem to make the most sense of all the aforementioned teams, as the Chiefs appear comfortable with Alex Smith for at least another year, while the Rams and 49ers are at least a year away from competing for a title, which is a big deal for an aging, injury-prone quarterback like Romo. If he lands in Houston or Denver, Romo should be a serviceable fantasy QB2.

Broncos | Denver the favorite to sign Tony Romo

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 15:39:29 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is expected to be released this offseason. If he is released, the Denver Broncos are considered the frontrunners to sign the veteran quarterback, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: Romo will certainly be an upgrade if he is signed by Denver, but the offensive line remains a significant question mark. Romo's injury history has been well documented and he may not be able to last a full season behind Denver's soft line. If the Broncos sign Romo and Romo is fully healthy, he'll be a low-end QB1 to high-end QB2 candidate in fantasy drafts.

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 16:35:41 -0800

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Saturday, Feb. 25, that no decision has been made on QB Tony Romo's status for 2017.

Fantasy Tip: Romo will likely be released or traded to free up cap space, and he should be able to find a starting job somewhere. Health is an obvious concern, but Romo is worth the gamble as a QB2.

Broncos | Denver to discuss Tony Romo if released

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 10:40:36 -0800

The Denver Broncos are expected to "at least discuss" Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo if he is released, according to 9News Denver's Mike Klis.

Fantasy Tip: Denver has been widely speculated as a potential landing spot for Romo, so Klis isn't breaking news here. The Broncos have the playmakers and championship-ready team Romo desires, but their offensive line is a far cry from the Cowboys' front five, which would make him even more of an injury risk than he already is. If the veteran quarterback does eventually land in Denver, he would be a very serviceable QB2 for as long as he can stay healthy.

Cowboys | Tony Romo willing to alter contract

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 16:31:04 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is open to restructuring his contract in order to facilitate a trade to a contender.

Fantasy Tip: Romo can't be trusted as a fantasy starter, but if he lands in a quality offense, he is worth grabbing as a QB2 in 2017. If he can actually stay on the field, he can be a high-end fantasy backup or useful trade chip.

Browns | Jimmy Garoppolo top target for Browns?

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 12:17:40 -0800

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo appears to be the top target for Cleveland Browns this offseason, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot. The Browns could consider quarterbacks like Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo and Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent QB Mike Glennon if they are not able to acquire Garoppolo.

Fantasy Tip: The Browns have two first-round picks in the 2017 draft, so they should have the pieces to move if they want to acquire Garoppolo. He played well when he served as the starter for the Patriots this past season but has not receive a lot of playing time during his career. Garoppolo would only be a No. 2 quarterback if he is traded to the Cleveland.

Cowboys | Tony Romo anticipating his release

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 08:50:10 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is expecting to be released this offseason. He believes he can be a starter in the league for two or three more years.

Fantasy Tip: Romo has a lengthy injury history, and he's entering his age-37 season. He's someone to target as a backup if you land an elite QB in fantasy.

Cowboys | Retirement not an option for Tony Romo

Sun, 05 Feb 2017 10:06:16 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo has already received strong interest from television networks that want him to work as a color analyst, but he has no intention of retiring in order to do so.

Fantasy Tip: Romo turns 37 in April and is coming off a significant back injury, but he was still able to give all interested parties a glimpse that he still has a little something left in the Cowboys' regular-season finale. The likelihood is that Dallas ends up releasing him as potential suitors won't be all that inclined to trade for an aging quarterback who may only have one year left with a fairly substantial contract. If he leaves Dallas, he will be a high-risk fantasy QB2 almost regardless of where he lands.

Chiefs | KC interested in Tony Romo?

Sat, 04 Feb 2017 06:57:23 -0800

The Kansas City Chiefs are one team that could be interested in acquiring Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo this offseason, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The team is reportedly looking to upgrade the quarterback position after losing in the second round of the playoffs for the second consecutive year.

Fantasy Tip: Incumbent starting QB Alex Smith would likely be released if Romo lands in Kansas City. Although he should still be capable of posting QB1 numbers in a favorable situation, Romo would be best served as a fantasy backup in most seasonal formats due to his injury history.

Cardinals | No Tony Romo for Arizona

Fri, 03 Feb 2017 21:38:23 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is unlikely to be pursued by the Arizona Cardinals, according to head coach Bruce Arians. "I wish Tony all the best; I doubt he'll be a Cardinal," Arians said.

Fantasy Tip: Romo will have plenty of suitors this offseason, and he should still be able to produce QB1 numbers in the right situation. However, he needs to drafted as a fantasy backup because of his injury history.

Bills | Buffalo interested in Tony Romo

Thu, 02 Feb 2017 12:41:53 -0800

The Buffalo Bills have significant interest in Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo, but it may not be a great fit since Romo is looking to join a contending team, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills still have to make a decision on Tyrod Taylor, so it is not known what the Bills will do at the quarterback position. Romo likely will be starting for a team in 2017 and can be a No. 1 quarterback for fantasy owners. Taylor could also find a starting job if he leaves Buffalo but probably would be more of a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Thu, 02 Feb 2017 12:32:38 -0800

The Dallas Cowboys will be open to trade offers for QB Tony Romo this offseason once owner/general manager Jerry Jones meets with Romo, according to sources. Romo would prefer to be traded to a contending team. The Houston Texans, Arizona Cardinals, Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs are among the teams Romo may be interested in joining.

Fantasy Tip: Romo is not expected to be with Dallas next season and probably will be traded or released during the offseason. Romo should be a starting quarterback for a team in 2017 and could be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback depending on his team.

Broncos | Tony Romo could interest Denver

Sun, 29 Jan 2017 07:33:56 -0800

The Denver Broncos could be interested in Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo if they can acquire him as a free agent, according to a source in the organization's football department.

Fantasy Tip: Romo has three non-guaranteed years remaining on his current contract ($14 million in 2017, $19.5 million in 2018 and $20.5 million in 2019) but the Broncos would likely only be interested in him if he is released by the Cowboys. This would allow Denver to negotiate a cap-friendly contract with the soon-to-be 37-year-old. Romo should still be viewed as a QB1 if he lands with a contender as the unquestioned starter but his history of back injuries means that seasonal owners should have a competent backup on hand.

Cowboys | Retirement a possibility for Tony Romo?

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 09:14:44 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo has already said he wants to continue playing, but Bryan Broaddus of the team's official website believes retirement is a serious possibility for the quarterback this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Even though a healthy Romo would still better than roughly half of the starting quarterbacks in the league, it would be hard to blame him if he chose to leave the game given his age (turns 37 in April) history of back injuries. Ultimately, he'll probably try to squeeze out one more year, although it is highly unlikely he will do so in Dallas.

Cowboys | Trading Tony Romo is 'No. 1 priority'

Mon, 16 Jan 2017 21:36:34 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is "not going to be on (the team) in 2017," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, who states that trading the veteran quarterback is their "No. 1 priority this offseason."

Fantasy Tip: It's looking like a certainty that Romo will not be with the only team he has ever known next season. The only question is where he ends up, and with a good number of teams seeking to rectify their starting quarterback situation this offseason, the 12-year veteran figures to land in a spot where he'll get another chance again right out of the gate. This should be one of the more interesting storylines of the upcoming offseason.

The Denver Broncos are not inclined to trade for Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo this offseason even though they are Romo's No. 1 preferred spot, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Romo probably will not be back with the Cowboys next season after Dak Prescott's season, but he should be able to find a starting job with a team this offseason. Romo has shown he can be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in the past and could be one again in 2017 depending on his team.

Cowboys | Tony Romo leads NFL in cap burden

Wed, 11 Jan 2017 09:24:46 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo will have the highest individual salary cap charge in the NFL entering the 2017 fiscal year. He is set to count $24.7 million against Dallas' cap next season, according to Spotrac.com. Dallas currently has the least amount of projected cap space in 2017. It is widely believed Romo will be traded, which almost certainly would lead to a restructuring of his current deal.

Broncos | Denver not interested in Tony Romo?

Sun, 08 Jan 2017 15:54:00 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is not likely to draw interest from the Denver Broncos in the offseason because of the their offensive line issues and their belief in QB Trevor Siemian and investment in QB Paxton Lynch, according to ESPN's Ed Werder.

Fantasy Tip: Romo's name is going to be tossed about in a lot of rumors this offseason. If he ends up starting for a decent team, he will have QB1 upside. However, don't count on the fragile veteran carrying your fantasy team.

Cowboys | Tony Romo effective in one series

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 13:55:11 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo played one series in the team's 27-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Jan. 1. Romo was 3-for-4 for 29 yards and threw his first touchdown pass in 14 months.

Fantasy Tip: It's just one series, but Romo proved he could snap back in a second and play ball once again. Whether Romo stays in Dallas or goes elsewhere remains to be seen. For now, mainly because of his long layoff, Romo carries QB2 status with a good chance to go back to QB1 depending on his health and where he plays.

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 05:12:49 -0800

Updating previous reports, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is expected to see action in Week 17. QB Dak Prescott will start the game, and QB Mark Sanchez will also see playing time, but the amount hasn't been determined.

Fantasy Tip: Avoid all three signal callers in fantasy this week. Prescott could wind up playing the first half, much like a preseason game, before giving way to the two vets.
