    Too late... We already screwed the pooch with the contract we gave him. He is absolutely un-tradeable. Even if he were, no way in hell Houston would even remotely want him.

    Agree but would Houston really pass up a good QB(whom they would have to pay very little too) and the 16th pick? They would get their QB(cheaply) with a mid-round pick in a deep draft. I would definitely think twice before turning that one down........

    Ignore what I just said if Houston would still have to pay a large cap hit(not bonus) for :D

    They wouldn't have to, you're correct. Would give them the best chance to compete in the next 3 seasons.

    Again why would they want an older QB with injury issues when they can draft their QB for the next 10 years?

    They wouldn't & they won't.

    That would be a TERRIBLE trade......I would have to give thought to trading him for the #1 without swapping our pick....insane trade

    There's about an equal chance for Jerry to trade away Romo as there is for him to step down as the Cowboys' GM.

    OK. I have decided to sweeten the pot. I'm throwing in Stephen Jones.

    But their QB would only last 1 to 2 years.

    There is no GM/owner stupid enough in the entire NFL to pull the trigger on a trade like that(besides Jerry)...

    I think you are forgetting about the cap ramifications...........Over $40 million cap penalty if we traded Romo before the draft...........we would have to gut the entire roster of almost every vet.

    I agree. They don't even understand the salary cap situation with the contract that Tony Romo has. He can not be traded.

    Romo worth a number 1 pick? Wow. Why would Houston pass up to take someone who can be a franchise player that will pretty cheap for their first 4-5 years for someone in his mid 30s coming off 2 back operations, never won anything and counts against the cap for somewhere around 40mill next year and in the 20s the next?

    I hope this topic is not even remotely being serious.

    This thread is only a whisker away from declaring "Cap Hell" over Jerry's trade of Romo.
