Signs continue to point to Tony Romo landing with Texans

Former NFL executive Michael Lombardi believes the Houston Texans can easily get a cap-friendly deal done with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo once he’s released.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I doubt that Romo’s biggest concern is how much money he’s going to make.   All he cares about right now is winning a Super Bowl before his career ends.

I’m still trying to figure out why Texans’ fans are opposed to signing Romo. It would be a no-lose situation for Houston.

This team is ready to win now. Now is the time to make a Super Bowl run.  They can’t make that run with Brock Osweiler, Tom Savage or some rookie starting next season.

I do believe that the Texans also need to draft a quarterback as they continue to search for their future franchise quarterback.  But they can’t ignore the fact that they were two wins away from the Super Bowl this past season.
