Report: Cowboys asking price for Tony Romo is too high for the Texans

Jerry Jones once again failed to create a trade market for Tony Romo.

Earlier in the day Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reported that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is willing to let teams that are interested in trading for quarterback Tony Romo contact him and bring him in for a visit.

Clearly Jones is trying to create a trade market for Romo, since teams around the league are not interested in giving up draft picks for the 37 year-old quarterback.

Sarah Barshop of ESPN reported that the Texans still aren’t interested in trading for Romo since the Cowboys’ asking price is too high.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media also reported that both the Texans and the Denver Broncos still are not interested in trading for Romo.

I wonder if the Cowboys’ asking price is why the Texans don’t want to trade for Romo or is it the fact that they would have to take on his huge contract?

Another reason the Texans and the Broncos may not want to trade for Romo is because he’s simply not worth trading for given how injury prone he’s been throughout his career as well as his age.

No matter how badly the Cowboys want to trade Romo, it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen.

Jones is going to have to suck it up and release Romo at some point.
