Here we go with the Tony Romo to Houston Texans talk again.

Jimmy Garoppolo, Colin Kaepernick, and Jay Cutler are all talented quarterbacks that could be playing elsewhere next season.

But the biggest and most intriguing quarterback that everyone is waiting to make a move is Tony Romo of the Dallas Cowboys.

Just the other day it was reported that the Denver Broncos are in the “drivers seat” when it comes to acquiring Romo.

There have also been reports of Romo possibly ending up with the Chiefs, but owner Clark Hunt made it clear that Alex Smith will be their starter next season.

Mark Maske of the Washington Post is now reporting that many people wouldn’t be surprised at all if Romo ends up with the Texans.

"As the NFL quarterback carousel prepares to begin spinning in free agency and those teams expected to be involved (and even those that aren’t) attempt to predict the next destination of Tony Romo, several people within the sport said they regard the Houston Texans as a strong contender.…The Texans and Denver Broncos have been prominent in the Romo speculation. Several agents and coaches and executives with other NFL teams said in recent days at the NFL scouting combine that they regard the Texans as the most likely destination for Romo.“That one makes the most sense to me,” a high-ranking official with one franchise said. “I don’t think anyone in the league would be surprised to see that one happen.”"

I believe Kaepernick, Cutler and Garoppolo could all help the Texans in 2017, but let’s be honest, if Houston is able to land Romo they could be instant Super Bowl contenders.

The only way Romo signs with the Texans is if money is not an issue because the Broncos can afford to pay him a lot more since they have about $43 million in cap space opposed to Houston’s $24 million.

On the flip side, Romo wouldn’t have to uproot his family from Dallas to Denver. He could keep them where they are and and travel only three and a half hours to Houston.
