View Full Version : Rapoport: Tony Romo "eyeing" Broncos next year

There will be a market for Romo this offseason, as the team will look to trade him. Though owner Jerry Jones said he's given no consideration to having Romo on another team, carrying him as the backup for another year doesn't seem realistic. Romo, I'm told, already has eyes on the Broncos as a possible destination if general manager John Elway decides Paxton Lynch needs another year and that Trevor Siemian isn't the guy. Other options, depending on a variety of factors, include the Bears, Jets, Cardinals, and Bills. When the Cowboys do trade him, they'll still have to deal with about a $20 million salary-cap hit. Romo will have significant say in the matter given that he will need to renegotiate his deal. He, essentially, could veto any move.

Now, I think it's too early to worry about all this at this point, but Romo's name has been coming up in relation to the Broncos recently. The real question for us will be whether they think Lynch is ready or needs another year. Elway isn't afraid to be aggressive, so it's not entirely unreasonable that this could happen, but a lot would have to take place first.

So we will be able to witness Romo actually dying on the field? No thanks. Frankly, i dont see this happening much like i didnt see the Kaepernick deal happening. But, i do see San Fran maybe trying to make a play for him.

Eating bench for most of the year as a first rounder is rare. Doing it for two seasons -presuming Romo is the starter- is flat out unheard of. I can't imagine TR comes here as a backup QB.

What would they pay for the 4-5 games that Romo would be healthy for?

He would have to take a paycut, no one is trading for that contract even if he didn't have age/health risks. They can't cut him because of dead money, so, if he wants out we're talking a straight up paycut. Then you have to wonder what Dallas can get in trade value and if that's even worth it.

I forget what his dead money number would be but Hyuge.


I've always liked Romo, his critics are ridiculous, I'd do it if not for Lynch but not for more than around $15 MM/per and a conditional pick.

Jaded
11-20-2016, 02:44 PM
Although, if he's taking that much of a paycut he could probably dictate where he goes, Dallas has zero leverage because there's a real possibility that they'd have to keep him at $25 MM. And THAT, Jer'uh stuck with a $25 MM backup, is what I'm hoping for.

My dream of Jones starting Romo over Prescott died on the vine but there's still a good chance that this turns out really bad for the Cowballs.

Yeah, so instead of spending that cash to shore up our awful line, let's spend it on a QB whose body's ALREADY shattered from a career behind a line like that.

Romo's out of his mind to even be considering this. And I doubt Elway considers it at all. I'd love to have him as vet insurance for Lynch, but not for what'd it cost.

Elway took manning as a high profile FA. Last offseason he went after a few that were deals when we had unknown siemian only on roster. I doubt elway will go after romo unless he is dirt cheap. But elway also saw a groomed qb walk away after being drafted to be the new. Elway would be doing the same to lynch......not a good trend.

Aaron Rodgers was a first round pick and waited like 4 years to start. It's not unheard of for a first round pick to wait. Especially if the guys in charge want to wait.

I think Kubiak likes Siemian. I don't see anything changing unless Elway really wants it to.

Romo could still get quite a bit of money from a team that's very desperate like the Jets or Niners. It'll be his last check. He'd be crazy not to cash in.

You point out a narrow circumstance that is literally an outlier. Congratulations' you 'got me'. Still an outlier. If only I had 'barring ONE time in x amount of years!' then I would have been Dan proof! Trying to correct me obviously means so much the way you try to prance around after 'getting me'.

- Assertion that's mostly true - Me

-Counter example that essentially speaks to nothing as the context is narrow as all get it - You.

Big difference between that situation and ours as well. Rodgers was drafted as Favre's successor. For us, Lynch was drafted who maybe we sit a year, but would likely be expected to be competing for the starting job in year 2.

If we bring a guy like Romo in, I think Elway is basically admitting he whiffed on the Lynch pick. You don't bring in a guy like Romo AFTER using a first round pick on a QB if you think the QB is any good.

If only Dallas had been able to trade up for Lynch and we'd gotten Dak. What could have been.

Dude, it doesn't matter. Rodgers did it. Super noteworthy. It's happened one time essentially. Super relevant. We will ignore the fact that it's happened just once and in GB they drafted him to replace an aging vet and in thi instance we would be bringing in an aging vet to at least pseudo-replace our first rounder.

And FWIW, I don't think Elway touches Romo with a 10 foot pole. That would be a panic move that I don't see Elway making. This is a lot different from the Manning situation. In that case we had Tebow who was obviously not good and you had Manning who was coming off more of a freak injury than a guy like Romo who gets hurt every year. That and Romo is like 3 years older now than Manning was when we got him.

I just don't see how Romo makes any sense for us unless Elway has already given up hope on Lynch, which I would find very surprising.

I don't think so. The thing everyone missed about Prescott was how smart he is, for him to have a seamless transition from Mississippi State's offense to Dallas' offense is pretty rare for a rookie QB. His decision making is fantastic as well. I think Prescott would have impressed Kubiak with how quickly he grasped the offense and would have been the starter. The whole reason Lynch is sitting is because he isn't ready yet. Prescott wouldn't have had that problem.

Of course this is entirely speculation, but it would be a long shot if Lynch ends up anywhere near as good as Prescott has been. Dallas just hit the lottery on that one.

If Lynch still isn't ready to start NEXT season, then he's probably just a bust. If the coaches believe that to be the case, I'm all for going after Romo.

Exactly, if the league gm's had an inclination of how good he would be he would have been drafted in the top 5 picks, not the fourth round.

People keep saying this I do not get why. The cowboys only had a good line for like 2 years. On the plays romo got hurt he was running downfield and got ninja chopped and destroyed by the LB...Not indicative of what would possibly be something to project.

His contract is waaaaay too much no doubt. He would have to re-negotiate.

None of our QBs are anywhere close to romos level, at least right now anyway. Make no mistake. Romo would do for us what Peyton did his first two years here. Lynch and Sim are NOT even in the ballpark. Lynch may get there one day, but he is not in the convo yet.

What? Why?
We drafted a QB who every single GM and Scout, All of them, Every one, each and every one, all, said that Lynch is not ready this year and is a project and will need time to develop. All of them. How does a QB go from that to stud with 16 weeks of scout team work, a few OTAs and 1.5 training camps? I do not see it as any indication as to anything, and honestly, who cares what people think.

What matter is that the broncos develop him and bring out a finished polished project. Following someones made up timeline about busts or whatnot means jack squat. I believe that he needs 2 years at least. This year to learn playbook and work on mechanics. Next year to read defenses and stop thinking. Then finally maybe he will be ready to be unveiled. In the meantime we have a champ defense and only need an average to above average QB to bring us another title. Romo can do that.

As dave mentioned the game where we had a shootout with Romo and won on his last second pick, I also knew he was going to throw one, but we dont need romo to romo for us. He had to put up 40+ points to win and still lost.

Here he has to put up 24. And more importantly just move the ball for a few 1st downs per drive, give the D a rest and we can win. I am not saying I want romo, but I think he would improve us and him being here has nothing to do with Lynch or his development. I also dont want to David Carr lynch with our Terrible OL and mess his head up.

People keep saying this I do not get why. The cowboys only had a good line for like 2 years. On the plays romo got hurt he was running downfield and got ninja chopped and destroyed by the LB...Not indicative of what would possibly be something to project.
? Sacks caused each of his broken collarbones (http://www.espn.com/blog/dallas/cowboys/post/_/id/4753377/a-look-at-tony-romos-injury-history)—all THREE of them. There's a reason Dallas sold out on drafting offensive linemen early in two straight drafts: For the same reason we should, except the victim then was Romo (and Marion Barber and Co.) for a decade instead of Manning (and Willis McGahee and Co.) for half of one. Does this look like a QB running downfield?

http://larrybrownsports.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/tony-romo-hand1.jpg

Looks more like a QB surrounded by three pass rushers but only a SINGLE lineman (who's on the wrong side of the pass rusher he's "blocking.") Tony Romos career is an object lesson in why we desperately need to rebuild our line yesterday.


His contract is waaaaay too much no doubt. He would have to re-negotiate.

None of our QBs are anywhere close to romos level, at least right now anyway. Make no mistake. Romo would do for us what Peyton did his first two years here. Lynch and Sim are NOT even in the ballpark. Lynch may get there one day, but he is not in the convo yet.

Not even Cowboys fans have ever compared Romo to Manning at his best, and Manning had a FAR better injury history (even a far better broken spine history.)

Oh I know. It's rare. I just love poking holes in things that King says. He gets really defensive. He's like a smarter version of Wave. If you disagree with King or Wave then you know you could get a few pages out of it.

I hope one day to be even half as smart as my good friend king.

He was pretty great in 2014, when he was 34, and the Cowboys went 12-4. He would have been good this year with that team around him.

I don't know man, the last time I saw him play he looked like his arm talent and physical agility had really dropped off from his gunslinger days.

Romo is injury and the polar opposite of clutch in games. His cowboys have always been middle of the road with him. He loses games at the end with costly ints.

He has the highest 4th quarter rating in NFL history.

This is the rumor that will not die. I'm completely on board with this as long as it's low risk and doesn't break the bank.

Best case scenario is the Cowboys win the Super Bowl(Provided the Broncos don't). Romo asks for unconditional release which is granted. Broncos sign Romo for very team friendly deal. Broncos spend majority of picks on offensive and defensive line. Romo would be the same age Manning was when he set every single season passing record. Manning's injuries are also arguably worse than Romo's.

I don't think so. The thing everyone missed about Prescott was how smart he is, for him to have a seamless transition from Mississippi State's offense to Dallas' offense is pretty rare for a rookie QB. His decision making is fantastic as well. I think Prescott would have impressed Kubiak with how quickly he grasped the offense and would have been the starter. The whole reason Lynch is sitting is because he isn't ready yet. Prescott wouldn't have had that problem.

Of course this is entirely speculation, but it would be a long shot if Lynch ends up anywhere near as good as Prescott has been. Dallas just hit the lottery on that one.

And the thing I think everyone is missing about Siemian is that Kubiak loves him some Siemian as much as Wave loves him some Prescott.


And again, Prescott isn't the same player in this offense, not by a long shot. No running game, no pass blocking and a coaching staff that has zero interest in running anything resembling what he ran in college. All things that have contributed heavily to his success.

I still wouldn't trade Lynch for Prescott, he's the better prospect.

I liked Lynch way better than Prescott, but every game that Prescott plays well and Lynch sits on the bench it becomes less relevant how good they were as prospects. I still hope that Lynch will start next season and show that he can be our guy for the next ~15 years, and I definitely don't regret anything, hindsight is 20/20 and nobody would have drafted Prescott over Lynch.

As for Siemian, I don't know what Kubiak sees in him, but I don't think he'll be our starter next year either way. Either Lynch gets a chance, or the coaches believe he's so bad that they have to go get a veteran like Romo.

I've always had a problem separating what they were/are as prospects. If the P*triots drafted Shady in the 1st round it's still a blown pick and I don't even bother to consider whether or not he is this Tom Shady if he goes to any other team. Same goes for Prescott, he wasn't a 1st round prospect and there's no way of knowing he'd be this Dak Prescott if he was drafted by Denver.

Conversely, I think there's a bunch of QB's that would have fair better had they gone somewhere else. There's just no way of knowing.

Still, beside the point, it's my opinion he's still behind Siemian.

Oh I have the same problem, I watch so much college football and follow the draft and everything leading up to it so much that I fall in love with prospects and become obsessed with draft pick value and all. But sometimes scouts just whiff on someone, and I think Prescott was one of those times. Personally I thought he was another Tebow and never thought he'd be a good NFL QB, but the difference is that Tebow was dumb and Prescott was smart enough to learn a completely different offense than what he played in for years, in just a few months. That part is harder to evaluate than the physical talent, and is more important for a QB.

So under no possible circumstances then.

Romo's had a LOT more of them though, and only one of Mannings was arguably worse. Romo's had more VERTEBRAE broken, but Mannings skill, mind and solid line kept him pretty much injury-free before 2011. Romo's... didn't.

My issue with Prescott was his college offense, he's got solid ability and talent across the board though. I just didn't care to tackle the brain damage of developing a QB from that offense. Tebow had great results in that offense, to me this probably also a deal breaker, fair or not.

QB's and WR's, they historically seem to struggle to adapt from that offense. Same with Goff, I got interested in him early until I found out he's from Sonny Dykes system.

Lynch too, to a lesser extent.

I am rooting for Paxton or a QB under 30 years old.
I don't think we can catch "Lighting in a bottle" or should I say "Star Wars in a bottle" twice.

If there was some way we would be able to snag luck, that's a Superbowl.

Every one of our superbowls were won with QB's drafted by the Colts. That said, there is zero chance of us getting luck, but if we could, that's a superbowl win.
