The Tony Romo saga continues as team leaders rub elbows in Indianapolis for the NFL Combine.
http://www.scout.com/nfl/broncos/story/1681565-5-reasons-you-should-go-p... There's been a number of reports regarding the future of Romo, including ones linking him to a massive three-team blockbuster trade with the Dallas Cowboys, Washington Redskins, and San Francisco 49ers that would sent Romo to DC and Skins QB Kirk Cousins to the Bay Area. And of course, there's a new one regarding Romo and the Denver Broncos.
It starts with this; Mike Klis of 9News initially stated in passing that the Broncos would be willing to offer Romo $10 per year, which Benjamin Allbright then reported would be $10-12M per year, complete with various incentives.
Then, Dallas beat reporter Clarence Hill tweeted that Romo would take the proposed $10-12M deal.
This is a dangerous time of year to buy into any given report wholesale, but in a way, it's not entirely illogical or surprising to hear. Reports surfaced in the middle of last season that Romo's first choice in the offseason would be Denver, and although the Broncos ended up missing out on the playoffs and turned over their coaching staff, it doesn't seem like anything would have significantly changed his mind on the matter.
The big caveat is that the Cowboys would prefer to trade Romo before they were forced to release him. Obviously, if they were able to get a draft pick from a team like the Houston Texans, New York Jets, or 49ers. There's been no indication at this point that the Broncos would part with any assets in order to acquire the soon-to-be 37 year-old signal caller.
If indeed the Cowboys were unable to find a trade partner and Romo is jettisoned before the cap deadline, there's reason to think the Broncos would make that offer, and Romo would accept. But there's plenty of ifs in the way.
