Tony Romo is probably making the right decision for himself by retiring.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones made one last ditch effort on Monday in an attempt to trade quarterback Tony Romo by allowing teams to contact him and set up a meeting.

Jones will now release Romo now that didn’t work.

The only problem for teams like the Houston Texans and the Denver Broncos–who are both interested in acquiring Rom– is that ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Todd Archer are reporting that he is retiring from the NFL to pursue a career in broadcasting.

Romo is expected to choose between CBS, FOX, and NBC as he figure out which network he wants to work with to kick off his broadcasting career and that he made this decision based on his health, according to ESPN.

I’m sure the Texans are disappointed more than the Broncos given their quarterback situation is worse shape heading into next season.

Now the Texans will need to stick to their initial plan of adding a quarterback in this year’s NFL draft, which kicks off in just a few weeks.

Houston will likely head into next season with Tom Savage as the starter, Brandon Weeden as his back up and whoever they draft as the the third string quarterback until that player is ready to play.
