The Houston Texans may not have much competition when it comes to their pursuit of Tony Romo if and when he gets released.

As of right now It doesn’t sound like there’s much of trade market–if one at all–developing for Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. They will likely have to release him at some point in the near future.

James Palmer of the NFL Network reported on Friday that there’s no guarantee that the Denver Broncos will even pursue Romo if and when he ends up getting released. This is certainly good news for the Texans.

Palmer went on to mention that the Broncos biggest focus this offseason has been on improving their offensive line after signing both offensive guard Ronald Leary and offensive tackle Menelik Watson this week.

When looking at the Broncos I’m not sure they need Romo as much as the Texans do.  Trevor Siemien wasn’t that bad last year. I’m sure they believe he can play a lot better if they’re able to improve their offensive line.

Then of course when you look at the Texans, they desperately need Romo.  As great as it would be for quarterback Tom Savage to come in and light up the league, Houston can’t count on that happening. Which is why they have to explore their options as they continue to look for a franchise quarterback.
