Tony Romo has finally found a new home.

Earlier today it was reported that Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will in fact retire from the NFL rather than continue his career with another team.

As we all know by now Romo isn’t retiring so he can play more golf. He will instead pursue a broadcasting career.

It’s now being reported that Romo is heading to CBS to replace Phil Simms.

Romo will soon be doing his first Super Bowl as a member of the media.

Romo may also end up calling golf matches at some point. One thing is for sure is that he’ll be calling the Cowboys’ Thanksgiving game in 2017 since CBS has the broadcast.

CBS has yet to make an announcement as it pertains to Simm’s career at the network.

Like many other people, I believe Romo will be very good on television at some point.  But to think he’s going to be able to come in right away and hit a home run alongside Jim Nantz on CBS’ number one NFL broadcast is a little delusional.

Even Troy Aikman had to spend some time calling NFL Europe games and didn’t immediately jump to FOX’s number one broadcast team.
