    Via my tinfoil hair curlers:

    Jerry offers Tony Romo and our first for Houston's first.

    The Texans had a lousy season last year, so they aren't good enough to trade for a vet QB. They aren't a QB away from contending for the Super Bowl, so I think they opt to rebuild.

    Not sure how often this needs to be said: the Cowboy are effectively married to Romo for at least the next two years.

    If the Cowboys trade or release Romo before June 1 of this year that would trigger a $32.5 million cap charge (based on his $25 million signing bonus from last year ($20 million of which has yet to hit the cap) and the $12.5 million bonus payment under his restructured deal).

    Cap gurus, please correct my numbers if I am wrong.

    I'm confused...is this an actual rumor or something you pulled out of your backside? If it's the latter, the thread title is horrible.

    Clearly you are unfamiliar with the term "tinfoil hat."

    If it were 2006? Yes.
    Since it is 2014? No.

    Why would the Texans do that? They have a chance to get a QB they can build around & have for years. Tony is 30 whatever with recent back issues.

    It would be a 41 million cap hit to trade Romo.

    The NFL won't allow the Cowboys to play with a roster of 30 players which is what would be required to get under the cap if Romo was traded.

    The correct question is "Could Jerry trade Romo for the #1 pick."

    The correct answer is "With a 41 million cap hit, hell no."
