Bleacher Report - The Denver Broncos are leading the pack for Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo should the veteran passer be willing to accept a pay cut, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday.
The Dallas Morning News' Brandon George reported Monday the Cowboys will likely release Romo within the next couple of weeks.
According to Over the Cap, Romo's current contract will pay him a $14 million base salary in 2017. By releasing Romo, Dallas would eat $19.6 million in dead salary cap money and save $5.1 million.
Denver has $44.4 million available in cap space, per Spotrac.
The Denver Broncos have no age-bias. Understatement of the century.
After gambling on Peyton Manning and winning big, John Elway is reportedly ready to roll the dice again on Tony Romo. Romo has much more left in the tank than Peyton did (we think) and should be a starter if he remains healthy for a team that has virtually every piece but the one under center. This is a perfect fit.
