Report: The Dallas Cowboys Have Opened the Door for NFL Teams to Contact Tony Romo

The Dallas Cowboys have opened the door for NFL teams to contact Tony Romo and his agent.

If the Houston Texans are serious about acquiring Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, the window has open for that opportunity. According to NFL.com's Mike Garafolo, Cowboy's owner and general manager Jerry Jones has informed NFL general managers they have permission to contract Tony Romo or his agent to schedule a workout, visit or physical. Also, teams interested in Romo can have "limited conversations concerning (Romo's) 2017-2019 NFL player contract. Romo is due $14 million in base salary in 2017 and $19.5 million in '18 and $20.5 million in '19. 

If a team is interested in Romo, they will have to execute a trade under these parameters set by the Cowboys in order to have him on their roster for the 2017 season. 

The Texans have been coy regarding the Romo situation saying he is under contract with the Cowboys preventing them from commenting on the veteran quarterback. The Texans do have interest in Romo and would pursue him if he was released, now with current news of Romo that clock will start ticking faster to make a move for Romo. Teams have known about this situation for some time but with no clear offers for Romo, Jones has sent the message out loud and clear that all offers are welcomed.

During our podcast (Listen Here) reports surfaced that the Cowboys asking price was known to be a day two pick but that still seems too high for the Texans liking. The Texans want Romo on their terms and will continue to hold out until the asking price drops.
