Odds in favor of Texans signing Tony Romo

The Houston Texans have a good chance at signing Tony Romo.

Sarah Barshop of ESPN has pointed out that Bovada has come out and released the odds of where quarterbacks Tony Romo, Jay Cutler and Jimmy Garoppolo will play in 2017.

I find it interesting that Bovada believes the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs are more likely to sign Romo than the Texans.

While the Broncos would make sense for Romo, I thought they didn’t want him because they’re happy with Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian going forward.

Texans’ owner Bob McNair has made it clear they’ll look to the draft to bring in a new quarterback, but I don’t think he could pass on Romo if he does end up getting released by the Dallas Cowboys.

You also have to remember that there are reports that Romo would prefer to play for the Texans over any other team.

Nonetheless, 5-1 odds are very good for the Houston Texans.

I honestly can’t imagine Romo choosing any other team than Houston if he gets released.  It would allow him to stay in Texas and I imagine he would be willing to take less money in order to have a chance at winning his first Super Bowl.

What’s also very surprising is that the odds of Romo staying with the Cowboys are 6-1 despite the fact that every NFL insider is saying he’s done in Dallas, it’s only a matter of when and how he leaves.  Whether it’s by getting traded or released.
