It’s now a two team race for Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.
Don’t worry the Houston Texans are still in the race for Tony Romo, along with the Denver Broncos.
The team that’s out is the Kansas City Chiefs.
Chiefs CEO Clark Hunt recently made it clear that Alex Smith is their starting quarterback heading into next season despite all of the reports that they were interested in acquiring Romo.
“I would just reiterate what Andy has said several times throughout the offseason,” Hunt explained, “which is he’s very happy with Alex and Alex is going to be our starter going into 2017.”
Despite Hunt’s comments it seems like not many people were sure he was telling the truth. But now it looks like he was.
James Palmer of the NFL Network reported on Tuesday that the Chiefs are not interested in acquiring Romo.
Ownership and HC have openly been backing Alex Smith as QB in 2017. I’m also told the Chiefs are not interested in Tony Romo.

This now leaves the Texans and Broncos as the only likely landing spots for Romo.
It was just reported on Monday that both Houston and Denver were being talked about as the only two places Romo will end up as reporters, NFL executives and agents chatted with one another at the NFL Scouting Combine this past weekend.

Even though the Cowboys would love to trade Romo, it’s not happening.
The Broncos and Texans are too smart to give up draft picks for a 37 year-old quarterback that they’re not sure can stay healthy for an entire season.
The good news for both teams is that the new NFL league year begins on Thursday and that’s when the Cowboys can finally release Romo.
I believe Romo will end up with the Texans because they will be a Super Bowl contender with him and Houston is only a few away from Dallas.
