The story of Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo FINALLY has an ending.
One that no one really saw coming. After being turned into a backup following his injury and the emergence of Dak Prescott, Romo has now decided to retire.
He will be trading his NFL jersey for a suit and tie as he will enter the broadcast booth in one of its biggest spots on CBS. As reported by John Ourand of Sports Business Daily, Romo will be taking Phil Simms place as the top analyst who will report on the biggest games of the week on the network.
As for what will happen next?
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, he will simply retire allowing the Cowboys to split his salary cap hit over two years.
Confirmed: No reason for #Cowboys to cut Tony Romo. He can officially retire on June 2, they are able to split his cap hit over ’17 and ’18.
