Jerry Jones admits he’s happy Tony Romo isn’t playing for the Texans

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones got exactly what he wanted when Tony Romo decided to retire from football.

Jerry Jones can sleep peacefully at night knowing that the Cowboys won’t have to play the Denver Broncos and Tony Romo this coming season.

Jones can also rest easy knowing that Romo won’t steal some of the Texas headlines by signing with the Houston Texans.

Jones admitted on Monday that he’s happy Romo decided to retire and work for CBS instead of playing for another team.

From the Dallas Morning News:

"Cowboys owner Jerry Jones admitted Monday that he’s glad he won’t have to live with seeing Tony Romo in another uniform, particularly one of a team Dallas could end up facing this season.“Yes, because I think that if he were, they would be real competition for us this year,” Jones said during the team’s annual news conference ahead of the NFL draft."

I just wonder if Romo would have signed with the Texans or Broncos if the Cowboys had cut him when the new NFL league year started on March 9th, instead of stalling for a trade.

Or would Romo have taken his time to make sure he wanted to keep playing?

I personally think Romo would have signed with the Texans. He admitted they were his top choice and that he chose working for CBS over heading to Houston.

Hopefully the Texans will be able to fill their void at quarterback in this week’s NFL draft.
