Good luck to the Dallas Cowboys as they try to trade Tony Romo. They better not get their hopes up.

Talk about a turn of events.

On Wednesday it was reported that the Dallas Cowboys were going to release quarterback Tony Romo.

Now ESPN’s Chris Mortensen is reporting that the Cowboys expect to trade Romo to either the Denver Broncos or Houston Texans.

Former NFL executive Michael Lombardi says he’s hearing the Texans don’t want to add a quarterback.

I’m guessing Lombardi’s talking about through free agency since Houston has made it clear they will look for one in the draft.

If the only way Romo leaves the Cowboys is via a trade, I don’t believe he’ll end up with the Texans.

I’m honestly having a hard time believing that the Broncos would even be willing to trade for Romo.  Trevor Siemien wasn’t that bad last season and they might be fine offensively once they fix their offensive line.

The Cowboys can try to trade Romo all day, but if there isn’t anyone willing to make a deal, it won’t happen and they will have to release him.

This just sounds like the Cowboys trying to make a last ditch effort to unload Romo’s contract so they can avoid the cap hit from releasing him.

Update: It sounds like the Romo saga will continue to drag on.
