Could Tony Romo finally be on the move soon?

It’s become very apparent to the NFL world that not one team is willing to trade for Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.

It now looks like Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones is deploying a new strategy in hopes of trading Romo away.

Jones is now allowing NFL teams to contact Romo in hopes of showing them that he’s healthy and worth trading for, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Media.

There’s no doubt that Jones is a smart business man and knows what he’s doing.

Jones is clearly desperate to unload Romo before the Cowboys’ offseason workouts kick off on April 18th because the last thing he wants is for Romo to show up and get injured.  His 2017 salary would then become guaranteed and he wouldn’t be going anywhere.

This is a very smart move by Jones, but even if things check out medically with Romo when and if he visits with other NFL teams, people will be skeptical as to whether he can truly stay healthy.

Romo could be in the best shape of his life, but the fact of the matter is that he doesn’t have any trade value because he’s 37 years-old and is coming off of two straight years on injured reserve.

While I don’t expect the Houston Texans to trade for Romo, it will be interesting to see if they bring him in for a visit.
