Tony Romo Says the Houston Texans Were On Top of His List

The Houston Texans were on top of Tony Romo's teams to play for before walking away from the game for the broadcast booth.

The Tony Romo saga has come to an end and it is with the rest of the NFL on the outside looking in as he heads to the CBS booth to call NFL games and golf. Romo engaged in a conference call with media to discuss his decision to walk away from football and he made it clear that he was interested in heading to the Houston Texans to play quarterback. 

"There was absolutely interest." Romo said of heading to the Texans. 

"Their head coach is very good," added Romo. "And they have some incredibly gifted football players. That made it tough, too."

Romo stated that his family situation played into his decision to head to CBS and ultimately made him consider the Texans has a real option for the 2017 season. 

"Obviously Houston was at the top of the list of teams I looked at," Romo said in a CBS conference call. "It really had nothing to do with the Texans. It had everything to do with CBS. I didn't come to this conclusion lightly."

It was clear the Texans were in on Romo if he was released but were unwilling to part with a draft pick to land him for the upcoming season. As the situation moved on, Romo was offered a deal he could not refuse and head to the broadcast booth for CBS Sports.
