Look for Dallas QB Romo to stay in Texas
He would be perfect fit for Texans, who are QB away from Super Bowl.
As NFL free agency approaches this week, the burning question remains: Where will Tony Romo wind up?
Could he be the missing link for the Texans? Or the final piece of the puzzle for the Chiefs? Maybe a Peyton Manning-style caretaker for the Broncos? Or simply stay with the Cowboys and be the most expensive backup in the history of the NFL?
When healthy, Romo is an elite quarterback, and the 36-year- old says he feels the best he has in years.
He’d be an upgrade for at least 20 teams. Romo is fourth on the active list of NFL career quarterback rankings, behind only Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady and Russell Wilson.
Owner Jerry Jones says Dallas can afford to keep Romo as insurance to Dak Prescott, but there’s a hefty premium to pay. Romo makes a base salary of $14 million with an overall cap hit closer to $20 million.
It’s money the team could spend in free agency on potential impact defensive starters or a credible sidekick to wide receiver Dez Bryant.
