Jerry Jones: Deadline on Tony Romo decision is training camp

Tony Romo is stuck with the Dallas Cowboys.

There was some optimism that the Dallas Cowboys would finally move on from quarterback Tony Romo this week.

While Romo is still on the Cowboys, at least we now know he probably isn’t going anywhere, anytime soon.

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett didn’t have any updates on Romo when he spoke with the media at the NFL owners meetings on Tuesday.

"“Nothing really to update,” Garrett said at the NFL meetings. “Nothing has really changed since the end of the season. It’s a situation that we’re working through. He and Jerry Jones are the principle people in working that situation through. It’s been status quo.”“I don’t want to get into the specifics of all that,” he said. “We’ll continue to work through that situation.”"

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones made it clear that Romo could be on their roster up until training camp.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the Cowboys hold onto Romo until the end of the preseason in hopes that a team will lose their starting quarterback to an injury so they’ll desperately trade for Romo.

The good news for the Texans is that they were planning on drafting a quarterback next month whether they acquired Romo or not. So this doesn’t affect them much at all.

At the end of the day, Romo will not be on the Cowboys for the 2017 season, but we won’t know for some time whether he’ll be playing for the Texans.
