Tony Romo has been the face of the Dallas Cowboys franchise for the last ten years. That all could be changing fairly quickly with the emergence of rookie quarterback Dak Prescott and fellow rookie running back Ezekiel Elliot.

Are Romo's days as a Cowboy numbered?

The only real knock on Tony Romo is his ability to stay healthy and on the field. His talent and ability to lead the team have never been in question, just his health. Romo suffered a compression fracture to the L1 vertebra in his back during the Cowboys' third preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks. This injury caused him to miss the first ten games of the regular season.

In his abscence, rookie quarterback Dak Prescott led the team to a league leading 11-1 record, causing many to speculate that Romo's days in the "Big D" are pretty much over. Cowboy fans all over the world are chomping at the bit for their team to not only become relevant again but to reclaim their title as "America's Team" and become an NFL dynasty once again.

With the amount of success the Cowboys are having this season under the leadership of Dak Prescott, it would probably not be a wise move to disrupt the chemistry of the team by throwing the Pro Bowl quarterback into the fire again despite him being fully recovered from the fracture sustained earlier in the season. Tony Romo has been very supportive of the changing of guard, at least in the public eye.

There are rumblings however that he wants to be traded to a contender and is not too thrilled about his new role as a backup.

Denver Broncos interested in possible QB change

The Denver Broncos are one of the main teams linked to a potential Tony Romo trade. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport published an article that stated this: "Romo, I’m told, already has eyes on the Broncos as a possible destination if general manager John Elway decides Paxton Lynch needs another year and that Trevor Siemian isn’t the guy.

Other options, depending on a variety of factors, include the Bears, Jets, Cardinals, and Bills."

This all but solidifies the sentiment that this may be Romo's last season in a Cowboy uniform. The idea of playing for the defending super bowl champion Broncos could be very appealing. The Denver defense is one of the best in the NFL and they have a quite a few tantalizing weapons on offense in wide receivers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders to pair with running back CJ Anderson.

This along with the emergence of Prescott could have Romo heading to the "Mile High" city sooner rather than later.
