Ex-Cowboys QB Tony Romo reiterated to NFL Network that he will not return to play football this season.
Bleacher Report recently spread rumors Romo could come back to play this year. "Like I said before, I'm done," said Romo, now CBS Sports' lead color analyst. "I'm pretty happy and excited about the opportunity that was presented to me. I got coach Jim Nantz teaching me all the tricks of the trade that I'm going to be behind on, but I'm improving fast. It gives me a chance to compete, get better and improve. I get to be passionate about the game, hopefully teach a little bit, hopefully make it a little bit entertaining along the way. It's going to be fun." Jul 12 - 8:38 PM

Broncos GM John Elway said the team has no "intent" to pursue Tony Romo even if he is released by the Cowboys.

The Broncos have been leaking lukewarm interest in Romo for quite some time, but those leaks were thought to be an effort to convince Dallas they would not trade for the quarterback. Perhaps this is another such attempt -- "intent" is not the same as "no chance" -- but 9 News Denver's Mike Klis reports the Broncos' interest has "cooled" in the last month. With Romo now looking like a long shot, Denver will turn to either Trevor Siemian or 2016 first-rounder Paxton Lynch. Siemian is the favorite to win that battle.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Redskins and 49ers may discuss with the Cowboys a three-team trade that would send Kirk Cousins to the 49ers, Tony Romo to the Redskins, and draft picks to Dallas.

Rarely in the NFL do we see player-for-player trades, let alone three-team deals this complex. But RapSheet's scenario makes sense, as Cousins has long been linked to the 49ers under Kyle Shanahan, and Romo was connected to the Redskins as a Plan B last week if they can't get Cousins to sign a long-term deal. Dallas could balk at the deal simply to keep Romo out of the NFC East, but if this is the only way they could get something for Romo, they'd have to seriously consider it.

Broncos GM John Elway said the team is "open to anything" when asked about adding a veteran quarterback.

"We discuss everything, every possibility," Elway insisted. One of the most interesting possibilities is soon-to-be-former Cowboys QB Tony Romo, whom the Broncos are reportedly "clearly in the driver's seat" to acquire. Even though new coach Vance Joseph said he is committed to a competition between Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch and Elway said he is "happy with" the pair, it seems likely the Broncos at least make a push for Romo.

Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network reports all three quarterbacks will play for the Cowboys Sunday.

This was already expected, but it is nice to get a Sunday morning confirmation. Garafolo reports Tony Romo will follow Dak Prescott with Mark Sanchez on mop-up duty. Sanchez will likely end up playing the most snaps. All three can be avoided for fantasy purposes.

Jerry Jones said Tony Romo will not play unless Dak Prescott is injured.

"No, no, no. Not at all," Jones said when asked if Prescott could be benched for ineffectiveness. Prescott has not been as sharp the last several weeks and really struggled against the Giants Sunday night, but the Cowboys have hitched their wagon to the rookie signal caller. Unless Prescott goes down, he will be the starter the rest of the way.
