The Dallas Cowboys are working against the clock with the new league year closing in trying to move quarterback Tony Romo. Reports pointed the Cowboys to releasing Romo prior to the start of the new league year but that appears to be stopped in it's tracks for the time being with trade talks on going.
Denver and Houston have been linked to Romo since the end of the off-season and Romo at one point expressed interested behind the scenes of both destinations being possibilities to continue his career. He is not too far removed from his best season of his career in 2014, when he threw for 3,705 yards, 34 touchdowns, and 9 interceptions with a career high 69.9% completion and quarterback rating of 113.2.
Trading Romo would accelerate his dead money to this year totaling $19.6 million but a trade would allow the Cowboys to receive compensation back. The Cowboys are looking for every avenue to move Romo instead of losing him for nothing. Romo would have to re-work his deal if he landed in Houston but it is clear the Cowboys and owner Jerry Jones are working the phones trying to move him for something.
