Tony Romo Officially Hangs Up His Jersey
To pursue a broadcasting career.
The Dallas Cowboys quarter back was released on Tuesday and has initiated his retirement with a broadcast gig on CBS. Turning 37 this month, and with a third child on the way, Tony Romo has withdrawn from the NFL and will be replacing Phil Simms as the No. 1 color commentator. Rumors about a broadcast career began last season as the Cowboys kept him on the roster despite an injury during preseason. Romo took part in only five games over the last two seasons. His last game was in the regular season finale in 2016.
