The Houston Texans have the Dallas Cowboys and Tony Romo right where they want them.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones can try to create a trade market for quarterback Tony Romo all he wants, but no one is being fooled.

Houston Texans owner Bob McNair had some interesting things to say about Jones and his situation with Romo at this week’s NFL owners meetings.

From Jarrett Bell of USA TODAY Sports:

"“He saw the trade we made,” McNair told USA TODAY Sports, alluding to the startling deal that sent Osweiler, his $16 million salary for 2017 and a second-round pick to the Cleveland Browns in a pay dump. “(Jones) wants to make a trade. I understand that.“But he’s between a rock and a hard place with that.”"

McNair is right.

Jones and the Cowboys are between a rock and a hard place when it comes to Romo.

The Texans as well as the Denver Broncos both know that the Cowboys have to get rid of Romo this offseason.  It just doesn’t make sense for them to keep him on their roster and pay him like a starter to only serve as Dak Prescott’s back up. It would also be an awkward situation.

This is why the Cowboys don’t have much, if any leverage when it comes to trading Romo.
