The last week has been a rollercoaster in terms of Tony Romo’s future.

First, he was expected to be released. Then the Cowboys decided they were going to pursue a trade for their long time quarterback.

It seemed like all of the pieces fell into place for both parties when the Texans traded Brock Osweiler to the Browns, as they were rumored to be one of two teams with a shot at Romo.

However, as the weekend has advanced, no move has been made. Now the Cowboys have said they will most likely not trade Romo, as they are unwilling to send him somewhere he doesn’t want to go.

This leaves them with only two options:

  1. Keep Romo
  2. Release Romo

The first of those options seem extremely unlikely as the Cowboys would be paying Romo a base salary of $14 million to potentially never see the field. On top of that base salary they would see a bonus of over $10 million go to Romo.

If they release him, then they can at least only take the hit of the bonus. That would free up a little more room for them if they desire some other free agents.

All signs are currently pointing to the Cowboys releasing Romo, which would be beneficial to the suitors out there.

They would have more room for contract negotiation and to bring Romo in on a friendlier deal for their club.
