FRISCO — Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo won’t be playing with another NFL team in 2017. Instead, he will be retiring and heading into broadcasting.
Tony Romo is leaving football and going into broadcasting, even with Dallas planning to release him today, sources tell @toddarcher and me.

Romo led the Cowboys to four postseason appearances and two playoff victories in his time under center in Dallas. His last two seasons were marred with collarbone injuries and back injuries that made way for rookie Dak Prescott to succeed him earlier than expected.
Reports are that CBS and FOX have been heavily pursuing the 37-year-old Eastern Illinois product. If Romo were to join CBS, the expectation is that he would be paired with Jim Nantz on the A-game of the week for that network. If FOX were to get a hold of Romo, he would be paired with Kevin Burkhardt on the B-game of the week.
