Dak Prescott - QBPosted 4/15/17 7:55pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott said Saturday, April 15, he expects things to be harder in his sophomore season. 'The defenses have had more looks at me, so they're going to throw things at me,' Prescott said. 'I'm ready for all of it. I'm excited for the challenge.'
Huddle Up: Prescott has the weapons around him to build on his impressive rookie season. Grab him as a low-end QB1.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 4/4/17 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.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 4/4/17 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.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 4/4/17 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.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 4/4/17 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.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 4/3/17 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.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 4/3/17 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.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 4/3/17 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.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/31/17 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.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 3/28/17 8:17am ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten signed a four-year extension through 2021 Tuesday, March 28.
Huddle Up: Witten had a 69-673-3 season last year and turns 35 in May. He's still a solid PPR receiver, but his yardage and scoring numbers leave a bit to be desired. He's a top-end TE2 with the potential for a splash week or two.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/28/17 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.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/27/17 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.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/27/17 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.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/24/17 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.
Mark Sanchez - QBPosted 3/23/17 6:08pm ET
Free-agent QB Mark Sanchez (Cowboys) is finalizing a deal with the Chicago Bears Thursday, March 23, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Sanchez will serve as the backup to the unproven Mike Glennon, so it is possible Sanchez makes some starts. Even in that scenario, he wouldn't hold any fantasy value.
Ezekiel Elliott - RBPosted 3/18/17 7:58pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has been advised by his representatives that he won't be punished under the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy as it relates to an incident last July, according to beat writer Clarence Hill.
Huddle Up: The league's investigation hasn't officially been closed, so a punishment of some sort could still be handed down. That being said, he should still be one of the first players off the board in all formats in 2017.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/13/17 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.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/11/17 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.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/10/17 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.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/9/17 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.
Brice Butler - WRPosted 3/8/17 10:21am ET
Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Brice Butler will sign a one-year contract to return to Dallas once free agency officially opens, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Butler carved out a niche role in the offense as a vertical weapon and red zone threat. He played well when Dez Bryant was injured. Butler is a late-round flier if Terrance Williams does not return in free agency.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/8/17 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.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/6/17 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.
Dak Prescott - QBPosted 3/5/17 5:50pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott's work ethic is Peyton Manning-like, according to owner Jerry Jones, and Jones said he expects 'dramatic improvement' from Prescott in 2017.
Huddle Up: Even if he just repeats the numbers from his rookie campaign, Prescott will be in the QB1 mix in 2017.
Terrance Williams - WRPosted 3/5/17 7:47pm ET
Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Terrance Williams is expected to land a deal worth $6-$8 million per year, according to multiple NFL sources.
Huddle Up: Williams was never able to become a consistent weapon in Dallas, and unless he lands with a team desperate for receivers, he is likely to remain a unreliable fantasy option.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/5/17 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.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/4/17 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.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/4/17 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.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/3/17 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.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 3/3/17 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.
