Tony Romo will not be starting for the Denver Broncos, Houston Texans or any other team for that matter next season. Instead, the former Pro Bowl quarterback announced his retirement on Tuesday and will join CBS Sports as the station's top color analyst starting next season.
This has been a long time in the making for Romo, who was unseated by then rookie Dak Prescott as the Cowboys starter this past year.
He had been bandied about as a possibility for multiple quarterback-starved teams. But as the process of the Cowboys attempting to trade or release him played out, it became increasingly evident that Romo would hang up his cleats.
Now that Romo has retired, the quarterback situation has played out to an extent for both Houston and Denver. The Texans currently have Tom Savage as their starting quarterback. Meanwhile, Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch will vie for the Broncos' starting job during camp this summer.
Romo ends his career as the Cowboys' all-time leader in completions, pass attempts, passing yards and passing touchdowns.
