Cowboys' Romo retiring, replacing Simms at CBS


05 April, 2017

The Cowboys' franchise leader in passing yards and touchdowns is leaving the game and heading into broadcasting.

Tony Romo is retiring rather than try to chase a Super Bowl with another team after losing his starting job with the Dallas Cowboys, a source with knowledge of the decision says. Last year's injury, which occurred during the preseason, led to Prescott, a fourth-round rookie out of Mississippi State, taking over the starter's job. Below are a list of other quarterbacks who immediately transitioned from field to booth.

Romo ends his career at the top of the statistical record books in Dallas in yards, touchdowns and game winning drives.

"When you think about the National Football League, two of the most iconic brands are the Dallas Cowboys and CBS Sports", Romo said in a statement from CBS. Many Jaguars fans wished for the team to look into Romo after Blake Bortles' very bad 2016 season. "As an organization, we did what he asked us to do in terms of his release, and we wanted to do what was ultimately in his best interest", Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said in a statement. Is CBS attempting to copy Fox and their tremendous team of Joe Buck and Troy Aikman, another former Dallas Cowboys quarterback?

Romo, 36, played in only five games over the past two seasons because of a broken collarbone in 2015 and a broken bone in his back in 2016.

As time passed, Romo seemed to understand why that quote struck a nerve for followers of America's Team. ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported that the Cowboys expected to trade Romo, but nothing came to fruition.

In broadcasting, the future is wide open for Tony Romo. In 2012, he threw for a club-record 4,903 yards and on October 6, 2013, against the Broncos, he threw for a franchise record 506 yards. He went 11-8 in 19 career games against the Eagles.

Dallas' decision to draft Dak Prescott past year has eliminated what could have been a tedious transition period in Dallas.

Romo had two back surgeries in 2013 and suffered two transverse process fractures in 2014.
