What is Tony Romo’s trade value now?
By Jimmy Long
First things first, if the Dallas Cowboys are to trade Tony Romo, they have to find someone willing to take him. They’ll likely only trade him to a contender – some team that thinks they’re a quarterback away from a Super Bowl.

Any dreams of the Cowboys collecting a bounty of draft picks from perennial bottom-feeding teams is unrealistic. They owe Tony as much to not trade him to a bad team. Furthermore, he isn’t as valuable to losing teams that are in search of their next franchise quarterback. He’s just too old.
So, I see two realistic options. The Denver Broncos or the Houston Texans. Both teams have championship caliber defenses, and both have weapons on offense. They’re both just missing one thing. Yep, you guessed it: solid quarterback play.
The Broncos have been struggling all year with an inconsistent offense that just can’t seem to score points against good teams. The Texans suffered from such bad quarterback play that they benched their $70 million quarterback in favor of a 2014 4th round pick by the name of Tom Savage.
Romo would represent a massive upgrade to either team in terms of quarterback play, so now the question is: how much does he cost?
