Tony Romo came to the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted free agent, won the starting job away from veteran Drew Bledsoe, and then broke numerous Cowboys passing records. As a result, he has become a very important person to team owner Jerry Jones, who takes pride in Tony's accomplishments despite never winning a Super Bowl with him. In a recent interview at the 2017 NFL Combine, ESPN reported that Jerry Jones said he has not ruled out Romo remaining in Dallas.

Jerry Jones still boasting about Tony Romo

The quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys is Dak Prescott. In 2016, Prescott had one of the best seasons ever for a rookie NFL quarterback but Jerry Jones still talked about how Tony Romo was still there in case Dallas needed him.

After the season, despite all the praise and honors bestowed upon Dak, Jones still made comments about Tony, saying that Romo would still win a Super Bowl before he retired. If Romo leaves Dallas, that means Jerry believes that he will win one instead of the Cowboys winning it. That speaks volumes for how Jones feels about Tony.

Options for Tony Romo in 2017 NFL Season

Jerry Jones said that he spoke to Tony Romo after the Dallas Cowboys season ended in the playoffs. He said that the two spoke about options for Romo's future in the NFL. Jones said they talked about everything from trading Romo to another team, releasing him to find another team in free agency, Romo retiring, or even keeping Tony with the Cowboys.

However, even if Jones and Romo discussed him playing for another team, Jerry said that the Cowboys have not given Romo, who is under contract, permission to talk to any other teams right now because "we don't work it that way here."

Could Tony Romo stay with the Dallas Cowboys?

The biggest rumored destinations for Tony Romo are teams like the Denver Broncos and Houston Texans.

Dallas could save $5.1 million in cap space if they release him or $14 million if they wait till after June 1. When it comes to a trade, Jones said that Tony can reject any trade for a team he doesn't want to play for. However. the Cowboys are still under the salary cap even if they keep Romo. According to Jerry Jones, he would still consider keeping Tony Romo with the Dallas Cowboys if the quarterback didn't mind remaining a backup and insurance policy.
