Cowboys expected to release QB today
Tony Romo is leaving football and going into broadcasting, even with Dallas planning to release him today, sources tell @toddarcher and me.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:Romo has received more interest from media companies than NFL teams apparently. Dallas is expected to release Romo today, designating him as a post-June 1 release. This move of Romo to spend more time with his family has the most impact on the Texans who traded Brock Osweiler to the Browns last month. Currently Tom Savage is Houston's starting QB.
Texans ship Brock Osweiler to Browns-- Thu Mar 9 3:36 pm --
FF Today's Take:You don't normally seem salary dumps of this magnitude but reportedly the Browns acquired Osweiler, a 2018 second-round pick and a 2017 sixth-round pick from the Texans. Houston received a 2017 fourth-round pick. This move paves the way for the Texans to go after Tony Romo.
Romo to be released Thursday-- Wed Mar 8 1:00 pm --
FF Today's Take:Romo's future has been widely discussed for months and its no surprise it will end with a release from the Cowboys. It's likely he'll be designated a post-June cut to save $14 million against the cap. Romo (36) has battled injuries limiting him to just five games over the last two years. A fit with the Broncos or Texans seems likely.
