Quarterback Tony Romo expects to be released by the Dallas Cowboys - and not traded - this offseason, sources close to the popular veteran told ESPN's Ed Werder. Then even before the start to the 2016 season Romo ended up on the sidelines once again after he broke a bone in his back.
Rumors have been swirling for the better part of three months now wondering where Romo would end up next season.
This probably stems from the fact that the trade market for Romo is pretty cold.

About 300 firefighters are still monitoring the fire, and an Air Force C-130 Hercules will continue to distribute retardant. According to Mackie, the plan was to let it burn itself out, and that a forecast of rain over the weekend would help.
Also like Manning, Romo's next team could be the Broncos.
Had he been traded for, any team would've been obliged to take on his $24.7 million salary for 2017 - escalating to $25.2 million in 2018 - now the highest cap hit in the NFL. For a team looking to win now, Denver and Romo could be a flawless fit. Denver's offensive line struggled to open running lanes on the ground or give Siemian a clean pocket, and the loss of starting running back C.J. Anderson to a season-ending injury surely didn't help their chances. The Cowboys will incur a $19.6 million cap hit to do so, but in the long run dumping the 36-year-old signal-caller is probably the right move. Hopefully not. Hopefully Werder's report is true and the Cowboys will indeed cut Romo. Either way, they will be stuck with some dead cap space, so it's really a matter of how the Cowboys treat Romo during this transition.
Romo has spent his entire career in Dallas, but has missed most of the last two seasons due to injuries.
