Dallas Cowboys To Release Tony Romo On Thursday

Romo was sidelined for almost all of the 2016 season after suffering a compression fracture to the L1 vertebra in his back during the team's third preseason game in August. The team can free up $5.1 million in salary cap space in 2017 by trading or releasing Romo. The good news is that Romo can now choose the team that is the best fit. The Broncos get lucky again, because Romo is a great facsimile for what Peyton Manning did when he went to two Super Bowls and won one with the Broncos.

As to Romo, a total $19.6 million cap hit will be split into $10.7 million this year and $8.9 million in 2018.

Romo is being released after rookie quarterback Dak Prescott led the Cowboys to a 13-3 season, an NFC East title and a playoff berth.

Higher US Rates Could Unleash Damaging Volatility: OECD
In Japan, fiscal easing was seen underpinning growth of 1.2 per cent though the rate was seen falling back to 0.8 per cent in 2018.

Thursday is the first day of the new league year. Romo played in the regular-season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles. However, if they need a Quarterback now and do know have a certainty that Romo will sign with them, they'll draft someone.

While the Houston Texans are also making a heavy play for Romo's services, it's unlikely that they sign him. He has a career passer rating of 78.2 with 76 touchdown passes and 69 interceptions. Romo could remain in Texas, where he will undoubtedly be welcomed with open arms and joyful jeers aimed at the cross-state Cowboys. The attractiveness of that fact can not be overstated, particularly for a guy who has dealt with as much adversity in the locker room over the years as Romo has.
