There is a thought that Tony Romo could still retire and pursue a job in television.

It looks like the television networks are already lined up for the services of Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo whenever he decides to retire from the NFL.

It was already reported this offseason that FOX wants Romo.  Now another network is in the mix.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that not just FOX want to hire Romo, but CBS as well.

I wrote earlier today that Mike Fisher of 105.3 The Fan in Dallas is reporting that Romo could be on the move after this weekend. Whether that means he’s released or traded, his time in Dallas could be over in a few days.

While I’m sure both CBS and FOX would love to hire Romo, you have to wonder if his agent is trying to apply some pressure on the Cowboys to release him or to both the Houston Texans and Denver Broncos to make a trade happen before he decides to end his career.

When you think about it, there’s no other reason for Schefter to report CBS and FOX’s interest in Romo.

The last thing Romo wants right now is to be on the Cowboys when he knows he won’t be their starter next season. He wants to move on already, but Cowboys owner Jerry Jones won’t stop his game of chicken with the Texans and Broncos.
