With week 7 of the NFL season coming around the corner, the Dallas Cowboys sit atop the NFC East with a 5-1 record. However, that hasn’t stopped the team from exploring their options in terms of roster improvement, and first on this list seems to be trading away Tony Romo. The 36-year old quarterback is now being looked at as a piece that can be moved comfortably – at least while Dak Prescott is ready to go – and it seems like the Denver Broncos have emerged as a potential partner in that deal.
The defending Superbowl champions came roaring out of the gate for a while, notching four straight victories, but they have hit a bit of a stumble over their last two matches. Now they are looking at a 4-2 record, good for 2nd in the ACF West. Still, the Broncos need to shore up on that quarterback position if they want to improve their chances at another Superbowl victory. Austin Davis and Paxton Lynch have done a fair job so far, but the reality is that they might not be enough. The promising Trevor Siemian has been a bit of a question since the injury that sidelined him.
Even if the Broncos were completely healthy, they’re not likely to get their hands on back-to-back crowns without an experienced quarterback. Who better to fill in than the 13-year veteran Romo?
Given the upside of Trevor Siemian, a Romo-Siemian deal between the Dallas Cowboys and the Denver Broncos looks like a serious possibility. The teams need to think fast, however: The NFL trade deadline is on November 1, looming just around the corner.
Other teams have been brought up in the conversations involving Romo’s possible destinations. Colin Cowherd of Fox Sports think that the New York Jets would be the right team for the Dallas Cowboys to trade with, and getting Ryan Fitzpatrick could make them think about it. The Chicago Bears, who have continued their habit of being pretty bad in the league right now, could make a serious stride by acquiring Romo as well.
With the first half of the season in the record books, fans will be waiting to see where Romo goes. We know that he’s going to help a team with their aspirations on moving onward and upward; the remaining question is, where?
