Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo may soon be released from the team. However, he may soon have a new job behind the microphone.
FOX's Jared Max has more:
The Dallas Cowboys all-time leader in passing yards and touchdowns, Tony Romo reportedly transitioning from player to broadcaster.
ESPN says that Romo, who turns 37 this month, has already had discussions with FOX, CBS and NBC about potential jobs as a color commentator during NFL broadcasts.
An undrafted free agent out of Eastern Illinois, Romo did not throw his first pass until his third season with the Cowboys. That year he led the team to the playoffs in 2006, one of Romo's four post season appearances.
But the Cowboys never advanced past the divisional round with Romo, who in 2013 underwent two back surgeries, then suffered two more fractures in 2014, a broken left collar bone twice in 2015 and a compression fracture in his back in the 2016 preseason opener. That opened the door for Cowboys rookie Dak Prescott to become the teams starting quarterback.
