It feels like Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys have been barreling towards a breakup for some time, but we have not had many updates on precisely how it would go down.

Until now.

According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, Romo expects to be released this offseason by the only NFL team he has ever played for.

Releasing Romo is the most pragmatic route for Dallas at this point, considering how difficult it find another organization willing to take on the 36-year-old quarterback’s massive contract.

The most likely solution, then, is to release Romo after June 1, allowing him to find a new home while the Cowboys split the $19.6 million he would be owed over the next two seasons.

Cutting ties with the four-time Pro Bowler would save Dallas about $5.1 million in cap space, which it could use to plug some holes in its vulnerable defense.

Romo, who turns 37 in April, believes he has two or three more seasons remaining in his battered body, per Werder’s source.

He has appeared in just five games since the end of the 2014 season. 

Romo’s back and twice-fractured collarbone are certainly concerns at this stage in his career, though he is undoubtedly the most accomplished free-agent quarterback available.

He has thrown for over 34,000 yards and 248 touchdowns since becoming the Cowboys’ starter six games into the 2006 season.

Romo will be a prime target for quarterback-starved franchises like Chicago, Houston and Denver, though other teams will likely emerge in the coming months.
