No More NFL For Romo?

April 4, 2017

 

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is leaving football and going into broadcasting with CBS, league sources explained.

 

Romo has reached a verbal agreement with CBS to be its No. 1 color commentator -- replacing former NFL quarterback Phil Simms -- alongside play-by-play veteran Jim Nantz. He also had drawn interest from Fox and NBC. The Sports Business Journal first reported Romo's agreement with CBS.

 

The Cowboys are planning to release him Tuesday.

 

Romo's decision came down to his health. Romo, who turns 37 on April 21, believes his family and his health are paramount at this time in his life. He was limited to playing in just parts of five games over the past two seasons because of collarbone and back injuries, and he suffered a compression fracture in his back last August that led the way to Dak Prescott's emergence.
