Is Tony Romo worth two first round selections? http://thelandryhat.com/2016/12/23/is-tony-romo-worth-two-first-round-selections/ With expectation that veteran Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will be traded this offseason, exactly how much could he possibly be worth? Value. It something that quarterback Tony Romo gave the Dallas Cowboys under center as a coveted franchise quarterback for over a decade. Now, as it appears Romo is in his final season in Dallas, his value has a drastically different meaning for this Cowboys organization. In this case, his potential trade value this offseason. Exactly much is Romo worth? Well, the cliché answer is Romo is worth exactly what a general manager of another NFL franchise is willing to offer up for him. And considering that he’s 36-years old, has massive contract and his injury history; that value seems to be a very debatable and subjective thing. But during a recent rant by TV and radio personality Colin Cowherd, he mentioned a fairly high price tag for the former franchise quarterback of America’s Team. “…Jerry [Jones] knows he hit oil. It’s a ten-year surplus of it. And now he’s pumping up Romo: ‘He’s ready. Looks great. Two quarterbacks. Depth. We can win games’, Cowherd proclaimed on his nationally syndicated show The Herd earlier this week. “[Jones] is out there promoting his healthy, older back-up and hoping Jacksonville or Arizona gives him two first round picks.” Romo is certainly a valuable commodity. Quality franchise quarterbacks are so rare, there are several NFL teams currently in need of one. That bodes well for Romo potential value, despite his age and injury history. There is history of NFL teams trading nearly that much for a veteran starting quarterback. In 2011, the Cincinnati Bengals traded then 31-year old Carson Palmer to the Oakland Raiders for a first and second round draft selection. Palmer was much younger than Romo and didn’t quite have his injury history. But the former number one overall pick in the 2003 NFL Draft, the same draft that Romo was eligible for coincidentally, was a disgruntled player that forced his way out of Cincinnati by threatening to retire. Earlier this season, the Minnesota Vikings gave up a first-round pick as well as a conditional fourth rounder that could become high as a second round selection for a now 29-year veteran quarterback in Sam Bradford, who has his own extensive injury history. But on the other end of the spectrum, maybe a closer estimation of Romo’s worth was demonstrated in the trade of Green Bay Packers legendary quarterback Brett Favre. The Packers sent the future Hall of Famer to the New York Jets for a conditional fourth-round selection back in 2008. But Favre was nearly 39-years old at the time and had been infamously contemplating retirement for several seasons beforehand. So what is Tony Romo actually worth? According to recent history, somewhere between two first round picks and a conditional fourth rounder. It all likely depends on just how desperate a team is this offseason and how many interested parties there are. Until then, expect Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to continue inflating Romo’s value in the press like the world’s greatest used car salesman.
