ESPN insiders predict Tony Romo will sign with the Houston Texans

Experts starting to believe more and more that Tony Romo will end up with the Houston Texans.

It’s been almost two weeks since the Dallas Cowboys were expected to release quarterback Tony Romo.

As we continue to wait for Romo to become a free agent, it still looks like the Houston Texans are the favorites to sign him.

ESPN’s insiders all believe Romo will end up with the Texans.

Now that the Texans no longer have quarterback Brock Osweiler on the books after they traded him to the Cleveland Browns, they shouldn’t have a problem trying to sign Romo. Even if John Elway and the Denver Broncos try to make a move, Houston has the money to compete for his services.

It will all come down to whether Romo is willing to sign a team friendly contract loaded with incentives that will reward him as long as he stays healthy and on the football field.

There’s some belief that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones could release Romo after talking with Texans owner Bob McNair at next week’s owners meetings.

ESPN’s Ed Werder has stated that he believes Romo will be cut loose some time in April.

If this is the case, Romo could be signed by the Texans, or another team, before next month’s NFL draft.

If Houston is able to sign Romo before the draft, I wonder if it would change their approach to drafting a quarterback. Instead of being inclined to take one in the first round, maybe they would instead select one in the second or third round.
