Tony Romo to Retire

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is retiring.

Romo announced today that he will be retiring and joining the CBS sports crew. Romo released a photo of himself today wearing a blazer emblazoned with the CBS logo. The photo contained the caption, "I guess it's time to start dressing up."

Romo will replace Phil Simms on CBS as a top game analyst, according to Bleacher Report.

The quarterback's retirement comes following discussion on what the future of Romo's tenure with the Dallas Cowboys would be, following the breakout of rookie quarterback Dak Prescott, during the 2016-2017 season. Romo had been discussed as a potential trade to the Houston Texans or the Denver Broncos, prior to this announcement.

Over his career, Romo played for the Dallas Cowboys from his debut in 2003 to the end of his career in 2017. Romo appeared in four Pro Bowls, all as a member of the Dallas Cowboys team.
