Cowboys to release Romo Thursday

Romo's 2017 salary cap number of $24.7 million stands as the highest among any quarterback for next season. This led to many assuming that the Dallas Cowboys might release Tony before the NFL Draft, so that they could free up some space on the cap. He always has spoken of his admiration of Romo, and he is turning his words into action by putting Romo fully in charge of selecting his next National Football League team. They had interest in McCown early in training camp a year ago after backup Kellen Moore fractured his ankle, leaving Dak Prescott and Jameill Showers as the team's options behind Romo.

Tony Romo's days with the Dallas Cowboys apparently are numbered, and that number seems to be one. He's free to sign with any team before free agency opens March 9 but plans to be patient. Kyle Shanahan might intrigue him, but with quite a few question marks, I have to think Romo would rather go to a team closer to a Super Bowl. Some teams are already seeming to drop out of the picture; the Chicago Bears, for example, are reportedly about to sign Bucs' QB Mike Glennon for three years and $45M.

The report also states that armed groups targeted western Aleppo for the sole objective of terrorizing civilians. Opposition groups shelled government-controlled western Aleppo, killing and injuring dozens, the report said.

It's been evident since halfway through last season that rookie Dak Prescott had graduated from heir-apparent to his official successor, so Romo has no doubt been mulling his options elsewhere for a hot minute now. Otherwise, Romo's exit comes pretty much as had been expected, given the respectful relationship between Jones and Romo. If they're still not convinced that Lynch is ready, giving him another year or two to sit behind Romo and get there makes sense. They're a solid team that has never been able to hang in the postseason with outfits quarterbacked by the Tom Bradys, Peyton Mannings, and Andrew Lucks of the world, and they could use an edge.
