The Denver Channel's Troy Renck believes the Broncos "haven’t closed the door" on Tony Romo.

A previous report suggested it’s the Texans or retirement for Romo. The Broncos aren’t going to trade Dallas anything, but aren’t ruling out signing Romo if/when he becomes a free agent. Houston remains Romo's most likely landing spot.

Cowboys signed G/T Byron Bell, formerly of the Titans.

The Cowboys needed some help up front after losing Doug Free (retired) and Ronald Leary (signed with Denver). Bell also visited the 49ers and Packers before choosing Dallas. Bell could be an option to replace Free at right tackle. He spent all of last season on injured reserve after disclosing his left ankle at OTAs.

According to ESPN's Jeff Darlington, Tony Romo believes his options for 2017 are retiring or playing for the Texans.

Darlington said the Broncos haven't "closed the door" on Romo but aren't actively pursuing him. Romo ending up in Houston seemed like a forgone conclusion when the Texans traded Brock Osweiler to Cleveland, but no progress has been made. With Romo still stranded in Dallas, it's possible he could leave to pursue a career in broadcasting. Romo has been offered gigs with Fox Sports and CBS. All we know for sure is that Romo is done in Dallas.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Tony Romo is drawing interest as a television analyst for Fox Sports and CBS.

Sports Illustrated's Peter King hinted that Romo turned down a "very good" television offer a few weeks ago. The Cowboys are still holding out hope of trading Romo, though the Broncos and Texans seem to have called their bluff. Injuries and the emergence of Dak Prescott have limited the 36-year-old to just five appearances over his last two seasons.

Free agent G/T Byron Bell is visiting the Cowboys on Friday.

Bell has also visited the 49ers and Packers. He has position versatility with the ability to play guard and tackle. Bell missed all of 2016 with an ankle issue.

The Packers visited with free agent OL Byron Bell.

Bell missed all of 2016 with an ankle injury. He was a starter the first five years of his career and could be a candidate to replace T.J. Lang. The 49ers have also been linked to Bell.

Cowboys re-signed QB Kellen Moore.

With Tony Romo de facto out the door, Moore is temporarily the No. 2. Too physically slight to be a legitimate backup, Moore should eventually be jumped by a free agent signing or draft pick.
Mar 20 - 1:19 PM

Appearing on The Rich Eisen Show, Sports Illustrated's Peter King said he believes the Cowboys are "willing to wait" on Tony Romo.

It's somewhat stunning that Romo hasn't been released yet, but as King notes, there's no urgency to move him with OTAs still over four weeks away. The Broncos don't seem to be taking the bait, so for now it looks like the Cowboys are trying to goad the Texans into making a trade. King also mentioned that Romo turned down a "very good job" three weeks ago. While King didn't explicitly say what it was, he strongly hinted the offer was for a job in television. It could be a while before this situation resolves itself.

Cowboys LE Tyrone Crawford (shoulder) is questionable for OTAs.

Crawford is still regaining strength in his surgically-repaired shoulder. The Cowboys haven't put a timetable on his return, but he's expected to be cleared for training camp. Crawford could see more snaps inside this year given his pass rush struggles. He's entering the third season of a six-year, $45.675 million deal.
Mar 18 - 3:07 PM

Cowboys re-signed RB Darren McFadden to a one-year, $980,000 contract.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports McFadden "had interest from elsewhere," but no visits or supposedly-interested teams leaked. McFadden missed most of 2016 as he recovered from a mysterious, freak arm injury. He rushed the ball 24 times for 87 yards (3.6 YPC) following his Week 15 return. McFadden has a decent all-around game, while his downhill style plays well behind Dallas' dominant line. Going on 30, he's a nice piece to have behind budding superstar Ezekiel Elliott.
Mar 16 - 2:25 PM

Profootballtalk believes the NFL could take Ezekiel Elliott's St. Patrick's Day parade video into account as it mulls whether to punish him for his alleged domestic violence incidents.

Elliott was caught on video exposing a woman's breast. The incident, while boorish and misogynistic, seems unlikely to have any real effect on the league's never-ending investigation. Elliott has insisted he's innocent in the domestic violence case, while law enforcement declined to press charges.

Cowboys TE Geoff Swaim underwent foot surgery this week and will be sidelined until training camp.

Swaim injured his foot in informal workouts at the Cowboys' facility this week. A blocking tight end, Swaim's 2016 was cut short with a pectoral injury.

Cowboys re-signed OG Jonathan Cooper to a one-year contract.

Cut by the Patriots and Browns last season, Cooper signed with the Cowboys in January. In a best-case scenario, he'd develop as a replacement for Ronald Leary. In a worst-case scenario, he'd be cut loose in the early days of training camp. Cooper has provided very little reason for hope in four NFL seasons.
Mar 14 - 4:18 PM

Speaking Monday, Broncos coach Vance Joseph said the team hasn't had "one meeting" about Cowboys QB Tony Romo.

The Cowboys are desperately trying to trade Romo, but the Broncos seem content to wait them out. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram predicted Monday the Cowboys won't find a trade partner for their former franchise quarterback. It's becoming a matter of when, not if, Romo is granted his release.
Mar 13 - 2:37 PM

Free agent G/T Byron Bell visited the 49ers over the weekend.

A starter from 2011-15 with the Panthers and Titans, Bell missed all of 2016 with an ankle injury. Bell provides versatility, but belongs on the bench, not in the starting 11.
