The Houston Texans might be the only option for Tony Romo.

From the beginning of the offseason the Denver Broncos and the Houston Texans have been the two main teams that quarterback Tony Romo has been linked to whenever the Dallas Cowboys decide to release him.

Now it sounds like the Texans could be the only team that Romo will play for in 2017.

ESPN’s Jeff Darlington reported on Friday that the Broncos aren’t pursuing Romo and that the star quarterback wants to play for the Texans or retire.

Of course we can’t count the Broncos out yet since Darlington did write that they haven’t closed the door on acquiring Romo. Sounds like to me they’re just not interested right now since the Cowboys still have him on their roster.

What is interesting is that Romo considers his option to be either the Texans or retirement.

The question is, how long is Romo willing to wait before he does decide to hang up his cleats for good?

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported today that not only does FOX want Romo, but now CBS does as well.  And like mentioned in an earlier post, it could be Romo’s agent trying to push things along to get him out of Dallas as soon as possible.

With the NFL owners meetings next week in Arizona, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones can only continue to hope and pray that he’ll be able to get a trade done with another team.
