The chase for Tony Romo is about to begin.

After waiting for two months, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will finally become a free agent tomorrow and which will allow him to decide on where he wants to finish his NFL career.

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports is reporting that the Cowboys will release Romo on Thursday.

Of course the Houston Texans and Denver Broncos are the front-runners to sign Romo.

We mentioned on Tuesday that the Kansas City Chiefs are out of the race for Romo, so as of right now it’s a two team competition for his services.

The Broncos can offer Romo more money, but playing for the Texans would allow him to keep his family in Texas since he would only be playing about three hours away from Dallas.

If the Texans are unable to sign Romo, the belief is that they would then pursue quarterback Jay Cutler once he gets released by the Bears.

As much as some people hate Cutler, he would be an upgrade over Brock Osweiler and Tom Savage.
