Looks like Tony Romo’s career in the NFL has come to an end. Romo was set to be released by the Cowboys today to allow him to pursue other opportunities in the league. Several teams showed interest including the Houston Texans who were making a big push for the once undrafted free agent. Instead Romo is choosing to go the way of broadcasting. The news was reported this morning by ESPN.
“Tony Romo made the decision after this comes out, after consulting with those close to him, after examining his body and looking at where he is in his career, he decided to step away from football and embrace one of the broadcasting opportunities that he’s had for some time,” Rapoport reported on Good Morning Football on Tuesday. “FOX has been interested, CBS views him as a potential replacement for Phil Simms, that would be an option as well. And then NBC as well.”
