The Houston Texans and Dallas Cowboys might be working on a deal for the services of Tony Romo as a quarterback. While there were rumors that Romo would be released from the Cowboys twelve days ago have turned into wondering if he will be released at all, the Texans remain a front-runner for the 37-year-old quarterback along with the Denver Broncos.
There has been some speculation that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones might prefer is Romo goes to Denver because he doesn’t want to give the in-state Texans more fans in Texas.
NFL Hall of Famer and former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin scoffed at that being any determining factor for what is going on with Tony Romo right now.
“Never in your lifetime, my lifetime and your kids’ lifetime with the Houston Texans take over Texas from the Dallas Cowboys,” Irvin told Dan Patrick on Monday. “Never. Don’t even sweat it. Don’t worry about it.”
Irvin does think that the Texans should be going after Romo, even possibly trading something to the Cowboys to ensure they get him.
“Tony’s a big piece for a team like Houston, a team like Denver that can really get them over the top,” Irvin said. “I don’t know why Houston won’t throw up something. Throw out anything. You threw $72 million at Brock Osweiler. That didn’t work. So you can’t just throw up a few draft picks and say, ‘Jerry take this right now.'”
