Tony Romo set to retire and pursue career in NFL Brodcasting


DALLAS (stewart love reports) After 14 seasons in Dallas, Tony Romo, 36, plans to retire rather than trying to chase a Super Bowl with another team after losing his starting job with the Dallas Cowboys, various media organizations including ESPN and The Associated Press reported Tuesday.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the Cowboys were set to release Romo Tuesday.
Romo’s departure from Dallas has been the most likely outcome since November, when he returned after missing the first 10 weeks with a back injury.
He conceded the starting job to rookie Dak Prescott with the Cowboys in the middle of a franchise-record 11-game winning streak.
The four-time Pro Bowler turns 37 this month and battled injuries the last few years of his career.
Romo is expected to go into broadcasting.
