VIDEO: Ian Rapoport Reports That Dallas Will Try To Trade Tony Romo Within Next 30 Days

The Cowboys will reportedly try to trade quarterback Tony Romo over the next 30 days.

The Dallas Cowboys will try to trade quarterback Tony Romo over the next 30 days, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport (video above). Owner Jerry Jones has stated in the past that he wants to do right by Romo, but rather than cut him loose and let him openly and freely negotiate with potential suitors, the Cowboys are going to try to get something in return. It isn't going to work. Romo's bloated $24.7 million salary cap number for 2017 will scare away all interested teams, including the Denver Broncos. Our own Erick Trickel has reported that the Broncos are interested in Romo, but only if the Cowboys release him. 

Romo, of course, made it known a couple months ago that his preferred destination would be Denver. But with two young signal-callers replete with potential on the roster, including 2016 first-rounder Paxton Lynch, the Broncos won't pursue Romo unless the conditions are absolutely perfect and team-friendly. 

A trade would not be conducive to those conditions. Strap in, Broncos Country, because this isn't a story that'll be going away any time soon. The Cowboys will find a cold trade market for Romo's services, and will eventually have to release him. 

When that happens, things will get really interesting.
