Now that it possible that Tony Romo may or may not retire, the rumors are swirling that Romo should pump brakes on taking the Fox Sports gig!
Get more on what’s going on with Tony Romo….
While it is undecided if the Dallas Cowboys will release Tony Romo, another rumor has developed that the Cowboys would love to get something in return for the veteran via a trade.
If Romo retires and takes the FOX Sports gig an in-booth analyst, there are still some who believe that Tony can still offer a team playoff-caliber production. It is not a shock that there is plenty of demand for both his on-the-field services and his charisma off it.
What is Tony Romo to do?
Sports Illustrated Richard Deitsch offered his perspective on Romo’s situation. Let’s not forget that he’s turning 37 in April and is still in the twilight of his career.
Although, Deitsch believes that it’s “important to note that networks have been willing to put big-name talent on the fast-track to the more attractive roles.”
Grant Hill was a broadcasting neophyte when he was placed on a three-man team with Jim Nantz and Bill Raftery at the Final Four in 2015. The same can be said for Alex Rodriguez, a vital part of FS1’s World Series coverage.
Now a day, it’s all about the name, the bigger, the better, that is for Networks. They’re NOT thinking long-term like Strahan, just the new now next short term to draw an audience.
Meanwhile the question remains, who will pick up Romo if Dallas sends him stepping? Whether it be with the Houston Texans or Denver Broncos, it’s not a career killer. But he needs to weigh his options and not shut the door prematurely. That is if he still has passion for on-field action.
Mind you, Romo has yet to decide on his fate. With that said stay tuned for more on Romo, since 2017 is rumors for Romo season.
