It has only been five years since John Elway chose to bring Peyton Manning to the Denver Broncos. After that decision, Manning was able to lead the Broncos to two Super Bowl appearances, winning one of them, before retiring from the NFL. It was a big move and ESPN reported that John Elway said he would consider bringing in another veteran NFL free agent in 2017 if it would help the team, with most people knowing Tony Romo as the player he was speaking about.

The Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning

The Indianapolis Colts completely wrote off Peyton Manning after he underwent a neck surgery and missed the 2011 NFL season.

The Colts turned the team over to Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning met up with John Elway, and signed a contract to quarterback the Denver Broncos. In Denver, Manning proved his career was far from over. He won the NFL Comeback Player of the Year in 2012 and his fifth NFL MVP Award in 2013 on his way to the Super Bowl. He broke the record for passing touchdowns in the NFL in 2014 and then won a Super Bowl in 2015 before retiring. It was a storybook tale and the Denver Broncos reaped the rewards.

The Dallas Cowboys and Tony Romo

Much like Peyton Manning in Indianapolis, Tony Romo was the face of the Dallas Cowboys for many years. An undrafted NFL free agent, Romo won the starting job for the Cowboys in 2006 and grew into his role as one of the best quarterbacks in Dallas history.

He was a four-time Pro Bowl player and holds the Cowboys records for touchdown passes and yards. However, Dallas has chosen to turn the Cowboys over to Dak Prescott, and much like Manning, Romo will be looking for a new home. That home could be with the Denver Broncos.

Tony Romo and the Denver Broncos

There are a few destinations that people look at when considering Romo in his post-Cowboys career.

The two biggest ones are the Houston Texans and Denver Broncos, two of the best defensive teams in the NFL. Romo believes he has two or three seasons left and that could be enough to finally win a Super Bowl and prepare young Broncos' quarterback sTrevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch to take over when he retires. He helped Dak Prescott in Dallas and if John Elway believes he can do it with the Denver Broncos young quarterbacks, Tony Romo could be a Super Bowl contender again in the 2017 NFL.
