John Elway almost eliminates any pursuit of Tony Romo

Is John Elway playing games when it comes to his interest in Tony Romo?

There was a report last week that Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo believes the next step in his career is to either play for the Houston Texans or retire.

Both Woody Paige of the Colorado Springs Gazette and Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk are thinking that the Denver Broncos are saving some of their cap space to make a run at Romo.

Paige even wrote that Broncos general manager John Elway and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones might be able to work out a trade at this week’s NFL owners meetings.

Elway made it clear on Monday that the Broncos are not really interested in Romo.

James Palmer of NFL Media has been hearing exactly what Elway said today.

The only way we’ll ever know if Elway is not being truthful is if he ends up trading for Romo or he goes full speed at Romo once the Cowboys finally decide to release him.

Until then, Elway is not showing his hand and has his poker face on.

As good as Romo is, the Broncos aren’t in a bad situation at the quarterback position.  I thought Trevor Siemien was pretty good last season and last year’s first round pick Paxton Lynch is still developing.

The Texans on the other hand need an upgrade over Tom Savage.
