NFL Notes: Tony Romo, Derek Barnett, Draft, 49ers

Tony Romo

Peter King of TheMMQB believes the door is “still three percent open” for Tony Romo to return to football at some point.

This comes after Romo didn’t completely rule out the possibility of returning to the NFL at some point.

I don’t envision coming [back to football],” Romo said, “but I’ve also seen enough things from ‘I’m not going to Alabama’ to ‘I’m not returning to football.’ Do I envision coming back to football? I do not. You never say never.”
