Probably for the best. Dude's had some nasty injuries over the years. Not sure how much more he can take.

Surprising. You would think he could get the starting gig in Houston or Denver rather easily.

Well when your back looks like a jigsaw puzzle made of Legos and you can sit at a desk and describe highlights for a few million, why not?

Especially considering that the rookie QB class is, at best, uninspiring and there aren't really quality options on the free agency market.

But as Hush said, Romo's body is destroyed. When is the last time he played a full season? I am sure Denver or Houston would take him. But I don't think they'd pay him much in guaranteed money. Not with someone so injury prone who, also, in nearly 15 years, has only won two playoff games. Why hurt your body even more when the money won't be all that great?

Smart decision by Romo. It's too bad though that he didn't get Washington to pay him $50 million guaranteed and then retired two weeks into training camp.

Whoa, not only is he retiring but he is taking Phil Simms' job. That means we don't get to hear Simms' condescending ass anymore.

And holy s***, Rows is back?? Welcome back.

Didn't Houston trade Osweiler for the soul purpose of adding Romo?

I thought it was mainly for cap space and to drop dead weight.

Right now it's probably going to be Tom Savage unless they draft a QB with the intention of starting him right away. Which is a mistake. The best fits for this QB draft class are teams that have QB's 1-3 years away from retirement.

Really the only teams that should be looking at Trubisky, Watson, Mahomes, and Kizer are the Chiefs, the Cardinals, the Saints ,the Chargers, the Steelers, and the Giants.

best fits (imo)

Patrick Mahomes/Cardinals
DeShone Kizer/Steelers
Mitchell Trubisky/Texans
Deshaun Watson/Cleveland


Kizer is probably my favorite, he just needs to sit on the bench a couple of seasons to develop (also needs to build back his confidence)

I'm a Mahomes guy myself. I'm hoping the Steelers land him.

I just hope the Steelers pick up SOMEONE in the draft who is a promising young QB. We all know Ben will miss at least two games this season (and any subsequent season) with injuries, and I don't ever need to see Landry Jones under center again in my life. And Ben will probably retire in the next couple years.

I know Pat needs work on his mechanics but I freaking love the guy's upside. Plus he has a Pittsburgh connection with his father spending his last season in MLB with the Pirates.

Yeah I also love his upside, he probably has the highest ceiling in the draft (kinda reminds me of Aaron when he 1st came out of college)

WELP, that pretty much means that the Steelers will ignore him. After all, if you have any Pittsburgh connection at all, it more or less guarantees that the Steelers will pass over you, unless you're some no-name free agent who will be lucky to play a down in the NFL.

Somebody with a decent able-bodied QB should make the Texans a Hershel Walker-esque trade offer.

Lions offer Matt Stafford (coming up for his next big contract) and Golden Tate to the Texans for Jadaveon Clowney, Brian Cushing, Will Fuller, and two 1st round picks.

Too bad about Romo. I was looking forward to seeing him play with a real team for the first time in his career. Who knows what he would have accomplished if he wasn't stuck with teams that Jerry Jones built.
