Broncos interested in Romo, but only as a FA
29 January 2017
Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports the Broncos could have interest in Tony Romo if he becomes a free agent.
The Broncos aren't interested in trading for Romo but could be open to signing him if he's released this offseason. Romo is due a reasonable $14 million next year but the Broncos are obviously convinced they can get him at a lower rate if he hits the open market. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported earlier this month that Denver would be Romo's preferred landing spot. Assuming he still has something left in the tank, Romo would make a fine stopgap for Denver while first-round pick Paxton Lynch continues his development.
