Reports say Josh McCown to meet with Dallas Cowboys today

Doyle BarkerMar 09, 2017

If Romo is indeed released once free agency opens, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him meet with the Denver Broncos out of the gate. The Cowboys can designate Romo as a post-June 1 release, enabling them to spread the salary cap hit of the move over two seasons instead of one. This led to many assuming that the Dallas Cowboys might release Tony before the NFL Draft, so that they could free up some space on the cap.

Romo also holds team records for most 300-yard passing games (46), multiple touchdown pass games (79) and consecutive games with a touchdown pass (38).

That's why Romo is such a commodity, in spite of the fact that he has started just four games since 2014 and will turn 37 years old in April. They had interest in McCown early in training camp past year after backup Kellen Moore fractured his ankle, leaving Dak Prescott and Jameill Showers as the team's options behind Romo.

Romo wasn't a bad QB for the Cowboys, but he did only play like five games in the last couple of seasons. That said, it does immediately up the intrigue in 2017 free agency as a few teams will scramble for his services.

Either way, it appears Dallas is content on moving forward with reigning Offensive Rookie of the Year Dak Prescott.

Where is the best fit for the longtime Cowboys quarterback? Which means that wherever he signs next is a team that a lot of Cowboys fans are going to find themselves cheering for throughout the 2017-2018 season and beyond. Romo would look great throwing passes to Deandre Hopkins, and he would still get to enjoy Texas barbecue. It makes financial sense and sense for the team long-term.
