Huh? What in the what?
Cowboys now expect to trade Tony Romo to Broncos or Texans, sources say. Broncos talking with Jets about Trevor Siemian.— Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) March 9, 2017
I thought Tony Romo was getting released. Adam Schefter told me so just yesterday.
Have to admit, I’m a bit skeptical about Mortensen’s report. My initial thought is that this is simply a last-ditch effort by the Cowboys to get something in return for Romo, that they’re trying to play upon the fears and desperation of QB needy teams to create a market. Which they absolutely should do.
Could this latest report be legit? Sure. The Broncos or Texans or some other team could feasibly trade for the Cowboys’ backup quarterback. At what cost? No clue. You’d think there would have to some contract tinkering between Romo and his new team, but who knows?
I don’t know about you, but I’m in a glass case of emotion.
UPDATE: So much contradiction. No one really knows anything about anything.
From my understanding the Broncos are not interested in trading for Tony Romo.— James Palmer (@JamesPalmerTV) March 9, 2017
I’ve also been told that the Broncos are not currently shopping Trevor Siemian— James Palmer (@JamesPalmerTV) March 9, 2017
The #Cowboys are now trying to see if they can trade Tony Romo instead of releasing him, as @mortreport said. 2 hours to go— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 9, 2017
If there are Tony Romo trade talks happening, few in either of the two buildings discussed know about it. Cowboys keeping options open.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 9, 2017
Now getting some backpedal on Siemian/Jets/Bromcos talk. But Romo as a trade rather than release is still alive.— Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) March 9, 2017
On our ESPN FA special, @Edwerderespn is reporting with @mortreport that there may be some trade interest in Tony Romo (before a cut).— Field Yates (@FieldYates) March 9, 2017
It's fluid at Broncos headquarters but as 5 minutes ago, Broncos were not trying to trade Trevor Siemian. #9sports— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) March 9, 2017
Also as of 5 minutes ago, Broncos discussing, but not yet decided on how or whether to proceed on Tony Romo, per source. #9sports— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) March 9, 2017
UPDATE II: Now Rapoport is saying an Arlington source says they were never going to release Romo.
Heard from a #Cowboys source on Tony Romo: “Was never being waived.” … Sounds like this may take a while.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 9, 2017
