Tony Romo’s football career is over.  Romo has decided to retire from the NFL and enter broadcasting.

There have been many reports and rumors that Romo has very good offers to work in TV and could replace Phil Simms as the No. 1 analyst on CBS. These offers Romo has been receiving have apparently led Romo to conclude that it’s time for him to walk away from playing and move into his next career.

Romo spent last season on the bench after a preseason back injury led to the promotion of Dak Prescott as the starting quarterback in Dallas. Although Romo had been widely viewed as the Cowboys’ franchise quarterback, Prescott’s outstanding rookie year caused him to stay on the team as the starting QB.

The Cowboys would have liked to trade Romo but found little interest, and the ESPN report says they will release Romo today. Although there’s been talk of the Broncos or Texans wanting him, it appears that he’s done playing football and will now broadcast football instead.
