Reports regarding Tony Romo's status are non-stop and still headlines the online news up to this moment. Many believed that it is a matter of time and he'll be suiting up for another team next season. And it looks like playing for the Houston Texans is a big possibility if ever the Dallas Cowboys decide to release him.
It has never been a good year for Romo last season as he suffered a back injury during a preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks and wasn't able to start. He was then replaced by rookie quarterback Dak Prescott before the 2016 NFL regular season begun. Even though a newbie, Prescott made an impressive performance leading the Dallas Cowboys to the top of the top of the NFC division with a 13-3 win-loss record.
With Prescott's remarkable achievement, Romo gave up the starting QB spot to the rookie and since then, he became a backup and wasn't able to play up until the Cowboys last game against the Philadelphia Eagles. And now that his role to the team is not clear anymore, earlier reports has surfaced the Romo is expecting to be released by the Cowboys and look for another team this offseason.
And it appears that one team is the frontrunner on acquiring his services next season. According to Forbes, the Houston Texans could be a potential destination for Tony Romo this offseason if ever the Dallas Cowboys make a decision of releasing him.
The experiment of bringing QB Brock Osweiler didn't make wonders for the Texans as he was benched throughout the season and they use backup QB Tom Savage temporarily. There is no doubt that having Romo would somehow alleviate the Texans deficiency in the quarterback position. Some say that he'll be a perfect fit for the Texans system under coach Bill O'Brien.
Romo, who is already in his fourteenth season, already gathered many accolades and awards around the league. He'd been selected to the Pro Bowl four times and chosen as a second-team All-Pro in 2014 but he never been to the Super Bowl throughout his illustrious career.
Could it be the Houston Texans finally the team for Tony Romo to give him a chance to play in the Super Bowl? Will the Dallas Cowboys release him?
