Tim Cowlishaw of the Dallas Morning News makes a interesting statement about Romo’s future with the Cowboys. Cowlishaw, who covers the Cowboys, mentions that if Romo has a “less than a probowl season in 2012” the team will be heavily invested in finding a future replacement at the quarterback position next off season.
Since starting his first game in 2004, Romo has managed to win only one playoff game since and with his contract expected to expire after the end of 2013, the team could opt to draft a quarterback in next year’s draft. They have Kyle Orton under contract for the next three year’s, but he’s obviously more of a contingency option, than a long-term solution at quarterback.
Soon to be 32, Romo has been one of the most polarizing figures in the NFL, receiving both high praise for his statistical success and heavy scrutiny for his late game breakdowns.
