    I think that it's feasible to hold onto Romo, for the reasons you said,but I don't think it's the best decision.

    The Patriots modeled the best way to deal with a pro bowl quality vet. Trade him, and get mad draft picks to build your future with, our entire team's window used to be limited by Romo's career length, now that we have a whole new window, we should be thinking of investments that keep us viable years after Romo's retired, and build up our young core of talented athletes.

    If the question is trading Romo for, let's say a 3rd, or keeping him, the answer is obvious to anybody with two eyes, but what about releasing him?

    Would you rather release him or keep him for a year as the best backup in the league?

    It sure seems like Jerry is going to release him, let's just hope Stephen/McClay/Garrett/who the f ever steps in and doesn't allow it.

    And you think Romo is going to wait around patiently for that?

    And the real savings is the following year once he is moved that frees up 10 million plus moving forward.

    I don't understand how anybody thinks its feasible to keep Romo around as a backup, especially after what he said in that press conference.

    I can't imagine releasing him in this market. I'd hold onto him until someone was ready to trade. Romo's a commodity worth holding onto. After seeing what Minnesota paid for Sam fucking Bradford, there's at least a 2nd or better we could get from one of several teams that are just a good QB away from playoff contention.

    That isn't even accounting for injuries that might derail a competitive team (like Minnesota and Dallas had this year.)

    I'd do the same but I get the distinct feeling that Jerry is going to just release him rather than prolong his exit, if it came down to it.

    It'll either be a release or some nominal draft pick I'm fairly certain.

    You are leaving out the financial aspects of releasing him.

    There is a also a gain in going that route, at least 5 million in cap space.

    And if its between going through all the drama surrounding a training camp with Romo and Dak or just releasing, I would release him and take the space.

    You don't spend that kind of money on backup especially when Dak has no history of injuries.

    So you think Romo is just going to sit around amicably in case it does not work out with Dak?
    Agree. The dye is cast in the organization. To keep Romo around would cause continual distractions by the media and possibly in the clubhouse. It's best for everyone that Romo leaves although a very sad circumstance.

    Financial aspects that could also be worked out in a trade to an extent.

    There is also the question of what to do at backup QB if we let Romo go. Sanchez obviously can't be trusted to play and who knows what the deal with Moore is.

    Someone will come calling for Romo eventually, it's just a matter of whether or not Jerry is willing to trade Romo to a team Tony may not necessarily want to go to because of his emotional attachment to him. I'd send Romo to any damn team if the price was right but I'm sure Jerry views it differently.

    It's not his call.

    But you get basically the same savings if you release him "the following year" IIRC.

    Would I rather trade Romo? Yes, but not for peanuts. If I don't get a deal I like this year I keep him and trade him next year for whatever and get my cap savings.
    But releasing him this offseason is plain stupid.
