If Dallas trades him to say Buffalo, they would have to pick up that salary. I think JJ feels some loyalty to Romo and may end up just cutting him after June 1 to save some salary $$$$. Then Romo can go sign anywhere he wants
I think Dallas cutting him to save cap room and thus allowing Romo to get the best deal with the team he chooses is how this will likely play out as well.

Bills gave up a number 1 for Bledsoe 14 years ago but Bledsoe was a lot younger than Romo and didn't have the same injury history...

I would not want Romo. He is like a high mileage used car that is out of parts, and held together with sawdust in the crankcase
Or maybe like a hand me down shirt you find at the 49 cent store that is good for one wear, but will fall apart the first time it gets washed

Kind of like the damaged goods that are on the discount shelf, yeah, some of them were once nice items, but now they have cracks and dings, may look good for a minute or from a certain angle, but really has little value

Like when we were kids and we broke my grandma's vase, we tried to glue it together, but when she put it on the table and put water in it, it sprung a leak and shot water all over the French toasts

Romo is one injury away from ending his career for good

Look what happened in preseason.....not even a hard hit put him out for months

Behind a team with a weaker offensive line, which at last count, was ALL Of them, he is going to get hit more often. And the next hit could be his last, sadly.

I can forgive the next 2 seasons based on excitement and poor O line and all that...but they waited WAY too freakin' long to recruit a young hot guy they can build a team around for years to come.
i disagree. romo didnt have a decent running game, thus they were a one dimensional offense for most of romos career. they also had a defense that was rather lacking for number of years. romo did well over his career given what he had to work with. over that time dallas built their offense, the problem though was that they would spend a lot of money getting players that didnt pan out. now that they have decided to spend their money wisely, and it is paying off already, romo is at the end of his career.

perhaps the front office needed to learn these lessons though.

Maybe top 15. Also maybe 16-19 range. They still got a realistic shot at a 9-7 finish. I'm sure we will draft a QB just don't know if they'll br any good. Outside of the top one or two guys off the board it's a crap shoot.

Why stop there....Yes... A complete overhaul.
