    Retired QB Tony Romo has not filed his retirement papers with the NFL at this point and does not plan to file the papers in the near future.

    Huddle Up: Romo is leaving open the chance of playing in 2017 if the right situation comes up, so owners will need to monitor the situation. Romo has the chance to be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback with the right team if he does decide to continue his career.

  • Posted: 4/4/2017 7:20pm ET

    Retired NFL QB Tony Romo officially accepted a job with CBS Sports Tuesday, April 4, to be their lead television analyst for the upcoming year. He'll work alongside Jim Nantz on the station's No. 1 broadcast team.

    Huddle Up: This should immediately put to rest any thoughts that maybe Romo would change his mind about retiring and latch on elsewhere. Fantasy owners can officially take the 11-year veteran off their list of potential draft day targets.

  • Posted: 4/4/2017 12:16pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo was officially released Tuesday, April 4.

    Huddle Up: The Dallas Cowboys are officially Dak Prescott's team to quarterback, as if that was a question anyway. The Denver Broncos and Houston Texans, the two teams most heavily linked to Romo, will stick with their quarterbacks, at least for the time being. No Denver or Houston quarterback, however, is in QB1 territory.

  • Posted: 4/4/2017 10:55am ET

    Updating a previous report, the Dallas Cowboys will release retired QB Tony Romo as a post-June 1 cut, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: This is a formality for Dallas, but it does at least leave the door cracked open for Romo to freely sign with a team of his choosing. It would be a dramatic twist to this saga, and an unlikely one at that.

  • Posted: 4/4/2017 5:26am ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo decided to retire Tuesday, April 4, to pursue a career in broadcasting, according to sources. Dallas is expected to designate Romo a post-June 1 release, softening the blow against the Cowboys' cap this season. Instead of counting $24.7 million in 2017, Romo would count $10.7 million this year and $8.9 million in 2018. The Cowboys would gain $14 million in cap space, but it would not become available until June 2.

    Huddle Up: Romo could still wind up returning in an emergency situation if a starting quarterback goes down in camp. While you should remove him from your draft boards, he could re-emerge as a QB2 later.

  • Posted: 4/3/2017 4:37pm ET

    The Denver Broncos will not trade for Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo even though the Cowboys have allowed Romo to talk with other teams, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: The Broncos have said they are happy with Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch on their roster and may not pursue Romo even if he is a free agent. Siemian and Lynch are expected to compete for the starting job during training camp, but the winner of the job probably should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

  • Posted: 4/3/2017 4:30pm ET

    The Houston Texans will not trade for Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo even though the Cowboys have allowed Romo to talk with other teams, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: The Texans likely do not want to take on Romo's contract and will wait for him to be released before they pursue him. He probably would be the team's starting quarterback in 2017 if he joins the Texans and could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback.

  • Posted: 4/3/2017 12:52pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo has been given permission by owner Jerry Jones to speak with other teams, according to a source. Romo or his agent can schedule a workout, visit or physical with any prospective team. Furthermore, interested teams are only limited to conversations regarding Romo's 2017-19 contract.

    Huddle Up: The wheels are finally starting to turn for Romo to possibly play for someone other than the Cowboys. The Houston Texans and Denver Broncos are the two most favored teams to court Romo, but nothing is set in stone. Even if he does sign with someone, his health is a major question mark. Tread carefully in fantasy drafts as he has only played in five games the last two years.

  • Posted: 3/31/2017 12:01pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo should have a good idea regarding his status with the Cowboys by April 17 - the start of the team's offseason workout program - according to former sports agent and CBS Sports' Joel Corry.

    Huddle Up: Team owner and general manager Jerry Jones stated earlier in the week he anticipates a resolution with Romo before the start of training camp in late July, which is most likely posturing on his end. It seems much more likely he'll be released closer to Corry's projected date than Jones', if only so all parties involved can avoid the awkwardness of the situation. The Houston Texans remain Romo's most likely suitor, assuming he doesn't end up taking a network job.

  • Posted: 3/28/2017 5:12pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo will know his fate by training camp at the latest, according to owner Jerry Jones. Jones said he has talked to Romo in the last couple of days, saying the veteran quarterback 'has options.'

    Huddle Up: It's somewhat of a cryptic message from Jones, but Romo's options are essentially that he will be cut or traded and play for another team or simply retire. He is not expected to remain with the Cowboys. Romo has QB1 potential when he is healthy, but he has only played in five games in the last two seasons. He's just too risky to be drafted at this point, especially considering his ambiguous future.

  • Posted: 3/27/2017 3:56pm ET

    Denver Broncos general manager John Elway said it is not the team's intention to pursue Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo even if he is released this offseason.

    Huddle Up: The Broncos seem to be happy with Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch as their options at quarterback in 2017. Both players received starts this past season and likely will compete for the job during training camp. The winner of the competition probably can be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

  • Posted: 3/27/2017 3:42pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo's status with the Cowboys may not be resolved until after the 2017 NFL Draft, in the opinion on NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

    Huddle Up: The Houston Texans appear to be the most likely candidate for Romo if he decides to continue his playing career. He would be the starting quarterback if he joins the Texans and would have some nice weapons to work with on offense. He could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues next season if he is healthy.

  • Posted: 3/24/2017 1:53pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo believes the Houston Texans and retirement are his options next season if he is released by the Cowboys, according to sources. The Denver Broncos are not pursing Romo, but they are not ruling out the possibility of signing him.

    Huddle Up: Romo is still part of the Cowboys at this point, but he likely will be released at some point this offseason. He would be the starting quarterback if he joins the Texans and could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback in 2017 if he plays for Houston.

  • Posted: 3/13/2017 12:31pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo has not been discussed by the Denver Broncos, according to head coach Vance Joseph. General manager John Elway and Joseph have both emphasized that they are comfortable with QBs Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch as their quarterbacks.

    Huddle Up: The Broncos do, or did, make sense for Romo, but it also makes sense to stick with what they have in Siemian and Lynch. Siemian figures to begin offseason activities as the starter, but Lynch won't be the backup without a fight. That being said, neither is a starting fantasy quarterback as of now.

  • Posted: 3/11/2017 6:54pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is not expected to be traded, according to league sources, and Dallas is not willing to trade Romo somewhere he doesn't want to play.

    Huddle Up: Romo is likely to be released if a trade isn't worked out, so he could still end up starting for another team in 2017.

  • Posted: 3/10/2017 6:39pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is not guaranteed to be pursued by the Denver Broncos, even if Romo becomes a free agent.

    Huddle Up: Romo's fate remains up in the air, but he is still expected to be the starter somewhere in 2017. He is injury prone, but he has QB1 upside. Grab him as a fantasy backup if you have a stable QB1.

  • Posted: 3/9/2017 11:12am ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is expected to be traded to the Denver Broncos or Houston Texans, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Romo was expected to be released, but a trade would obviously be more beneficial to the Cowboys. The Broncos and Texans are the main suitors. Trevor Siemian and Brock Osweiler are not starting caliber fantasy quarterbacks anyway. Romo, on the other hand, can achieve QB1 status when he is on the field. The key is for him to be on the field.

  • Posted: 3/8/2017 11:07am ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo will be released Thursday, March 9, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Romo is expected to receive interest from multiple teams including the Denver Broncos and Houston Texans. He should be a starter no matter where he signs and has a chance to be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he is healthy.

  • Posted: 3/6/2017 3:06pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo will receive interest from the Denver Broncos if he is released this offseason, according to sources. One source said Denver is Romo's preferred choice if he is cut.

    Huddle Up: Romo likely will receive interest from multiple teams, but the Broncos could give him a chance to make the playoffs in 2017. He would have a solid receiver tandem to work with in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders but would have to stay healthy. Romo could be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he signs with the Broncos.

  • Posted: 3/5/2017 11:20pm ET

    The Denver Broncos may be operating with two budgets in mind in case they have a chance to sign Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo, if and when he hits free agency.

    Huddle Up: Mike Klis observes the Broncos need more help on the offensive and defensive lines, but a second budget exists in case the Broncos end up with Romo. If he becomes a Bronco, he instantly turns into Denver's top QB and a decent mid-range QB1 option on most draft boards.

  • Posted: 3/4/2017 6:57pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo will abide by the 'do-right rule' if released and won't sign with the Washington Redskins, according to owner Jerrry Jones. 'It is implied that we will work in the best way we can for the mutual interest of Tony and the Cowboys,' Jones said.

    Huddle Up: The Cowboys can't actually forbid Romo from signing with Washington if released, but don't expect him to end up there. If Romo does go elsewhere, he could produce QB1 numbers if he can manage to stay healthy.

  • Posted: 3/4/2017 1:31pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said he has not ruled out the possibility of keeping QB Tony Romo on the roster.

    Huddle Up: Most people believe that Romo will be released at some point, but the Cowboys have not made a decision at this point. Romo likely would find a starting job if he hits the free-agent market. He could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback depending on his team and if he can stay healthy.

  • Posted: 3/3/2017 6:27pm ET

    The Houston Texans are regarded as a strong contender to land Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo, according to several sources around the NFL.

    Huddle Up: Romo would be an obvious upgrade over Brock Osweiler for Houston, and if he could manage to stay healthy, QB1 production wouldn't be out of the question.

  • Posted: 3/3/2017 12:18pm ET

    Updating a previous report, the Los Angeles Rams will not 'test the waters' on Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo should he become available, according to team sources.

    Huddle Up: La Canfora reported earlier Friday that the Rams and San Francisco 49ers were two teams who could emerge as suitors for Romo. The Rams were never a realistic option, as Los Angeles isn't going to bring in a veteran to block 2016 No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff from developing. The Houston Texans and Denver Broncos are still Romo's most likely landing spots.

  • Posted: 3/3/2017 10:15am ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo appears the most interested in joining the Houston Texans, Kansas City Chiefs or Denver Broncos should he get released, but CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora is reporting the Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers are 'doing work' on the veteran quarterback and could emerge as viable candidates for his services.

    Huddle Up: The Texans and Broncos still seem to make the most sense of all the aforementioned teams, as the Chiefs appear comfortable with Alex Smith for at least another year, while the Rams and 49ers are at least a year away from competing for a title, which is a big deal for an aging, injury-prone quarterback like Romo. If he lands in Houston or Denver, Romo should be a serviceable fantasy QB2.

  • Posted: 2/28/2017 3:39pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is expected to be released this offseason. If he is released, the Denver Broncos are considered the frontrunners to sign the veteran quarterback, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

    Huddle Up: Romo will certainly be an upgrade if he is signed by Denver, but the offensive line remains a significant question mark. Romo's injury history has been well documented and he may not be able to last a full season behind Denver's soft line. If the Broncos sign Romo and Romo is fully healthy, he'll be a low-end QB1 to high-end QB2 candidate in fantasy drafts.

  • Posted: 2/26/2017 4:35pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Saturday, Feb. 25, that no decision has been made on QB Tony Romo's status for 2017.

    Huddle Up: Romo will likely be released or traded to free up cap space, and he should be able to find a starting job somewhere. Health is an obvious concern, but Romo is worth the gamble as a QB2.

  • Posted: 2/26/2017 10:40am ET

    The Denver Broncos are expected to 'at least discuss' Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo if he is released, according to 9News Denver's Mike Klis.

    Huddle Up: Denver has been widely speculated as a potential landing spot for Romo, so Klis isn't breaking news here. The Broncos have the playmakers and championship-ready team Romo desires, but their offensive line is a far cry from the Cowboys' front five, which would make him even more of an injury risk than he already is. If the veteran quarterback does eventually land in Denver, he would be a very serviceable QB2 for as long as he can stay healthy.
