This week Adam Schefter was a guest on “NFL Insiders” on ESPN Radio, and when he was asked about Tony Romo’s situation he shed some light. He said the Cowboys will likely be willing to sacrifice compensation in order to trade Romo to a team he wants to play for.
“I think Tony Romo will decide that landing spot more than the Cowboys themselves because they want to do right by him,” Schefter said. “They want to make sure he’s happy. He will identify that team and the Cowboys will go to that team to try and facilitate a trade. They will not get as much compensation because of the fact that it’s going to be where Tony wants to go.”
While Jerry Jones believes he can convince Romo to stick around in Dallas, Schefter says it will not happen.
“With the numbers being what they are in his contract — the highest salary cap number of any quarterback in the league — and Dak Prescott taking that job, you cannot keep him,” Schefter added.
