    Ask yourself if 39 year old Brady is worth 2 first round picks. If the answer is no, then Romo obviously isnt.

    You really full of mirror watching and don't believe that as is right now, a lot of current teams wouldn't hook a wagon to the production of Brady? Or you really think value wouldn't be offered for him to lead a roster already full of all but a real quality quarterback...

    never mind, go back to the mental logic of the burn barrel buddy group and ignore where real value gets paid in the NFL. How much of just that level of pay for a POTENTIAL - exactly went down in the past draft? You really think that top shelf talent doesn't get top shelf pay at the quarterback position? There never is a cross comparison between production and need?

    Backup? Previous injury was the cause that gave Prescott his opportunity. Not all comparisons are equal when placed side by side...but investing in older and proven quarterbacks isn't a sudden fad that is stupid in it's make-up...no matter how young fans attempt to continually rewrite history and success.

    There are changes with ALL new directions taken. Think that the Dallas defense was going to stink after giving up scores on the first three drives of the Lions? Maybe there is wisdom in directions, such as with Marinelli.

    First off, the OP was not penned by myself...but it will be a cold day in hell before I race to insult the guts and performance of a long time producing quarterback, the likes of Tony Romo. No player has shown more guts.

    Would I give up two first rounders? No...but I'm not desperate and a GM in trouble, also...

    Even though Brady is arguably the greatest QB ever,I dont believe it considering Brady is near 40 and nearing the end of his career. If Brady doesnt get two 1st round picks imo, then a 37 year old QB with injury problems and 0 post season success sure as heck isn't going to get two 1st round picks.

    Good job of negative stereotyping. You haven't proven your case with a significant, but in biased group to compare from. Oh, and Romo is a very good quarterback who has been injured, and should be recovered now or shortly to playing levels of health.

    I think a 39 year old Brady is worth 2 first round picks for the right team. A team like Arizona or Houston, both who have talent all over the team except at the QB position I'm sure would mortgage the future for a chance at 2-3 seasons of championship contention.

    That being said, If Romo agrees to take a pay cut, I can see a team trading a 2nd round pick at the very highest, and that's being generous.

    With Romo's age and injuries and missed games the past two seasons he's absolutely not worth two #1's. Those who think he's worth that much at his age with all the injuries and missed games he's had are being ridiculous. No one is going to give up one #1 for him, he's only played two full games since the 2014 regular season...get real! It's crazy the value some think he has when he hasn't lasted more than two games the last three times he's been on the field. One more good hit could retire him. No one even knows where his game is at this point, he hasn't played a regular season game in over a year. The last two regular season games he plays he didn't look that good throwing 5 INT's. Romo will most likely be released.

    I doubt if any team actually pulls the trigger on a trade. I think they would wait for an all out release.

    No idea what'll happen with Tony.
    Sure do wish him the best though.

    I guess now his agent has a tiny bit more ammo.
    He can say there's a very long sample size career-wise, but we know its a minuscule sample size rhis year.
    Preseason: 5-6, 60 yards, 0 TDs, 0 ints, 108 QB rating
    Regular season: 3-4, 39 yards, 1TD, 0 ints, 134 QB rating
    Last playoffs: 34-50, 484 yards, 4TDs, 0 ints, 126 QB rating

    I wonder if JJ is thinking that he can give Romo and our first round pick to a team in the top 6 or 7 for that team's first round pick and then get a game-changing player on D in the draft.

    I can't believe people are actually thinking Romo can bring back two first rounders. You couldn't even make that trade in Madden.

    If he were 30 and signed to a team friendly deal, maybe. 37, brittle, can't stay on the field and with a whopper of a contract? You'd be lucky to get a 3rd for him.

    Jones may suck at being a GM but the guy can sell a used car. I agree with the idea that Romo is not worth more than a mid round pick and Jones would not dump Romo into a situation that Romo doesn't like, but teams like Cleveland and others are just baby candy waiting to be taken. If it's good with Romo, Jones would fleece them in a New York minute.

    What Team?
    First things first, if the Dallas Cowboys are to trade Tony Romo, they have to find someone willing to take him. They’ll likely only trade him to a contender – some team that thinks they’re a quarterback away from a Super Bowl.
    Any dreams of the Cowboys collecting a bounty of draft picks from perennial bottom-feeding teams is unrealistic. They owe Tony as much to not trade him to a bad team. Furthermore, he isn’t as valuable to losing teams that are in search of their next franchise quarterback. He’s just too old.

    So, I see two realistic options. The Denver Broncos or the Houston Texans. Both teams have championship caliber defenses, and both have weapons on offense. They’re both just missing one thing. Yep, you guessed it: solid quarterback play.

    The Broncos have been struggling all year with an inconsistent offense that just can’t seem to score points against good teams. The Texans suffered from such bad quarterback play that they benched their $70 million quarterback in favor of a 2014 4th round pick by the name of Tom Savage.

    Romo would represent a massive upgrade to either team in terms of quarterback play, so now the question is: how much does he cost?

    ...What Price?
    This is what it comes down to. I’m not a trade expert myself, so I researched some precedent for trading quarterbacks. Here are some of the trades I found:

    • In 1993, the 49ers traded quarterback Joe Montana, 37 at the time, for Kansas City’s first round selection (18th overall) in the upcoming draft.
    • Green Bay traded quarterback Brett Favre, 39 at the time, in 2008 for the Jet’s third round selection (83rd overall) in the upcoming draft.
    • In 2011, the Bengals traded quarterback Carson Palmer, 31 at the time, for Oakland’s first round selection (17th overall) in the upcoming draft and two years of future 3rd round selections.
    • Philadelphia traded quarterback Sam Bradford, 28 at the time, in 2016 for the Viking’s first round selection (TBD overall) in the upcoming draft, and a future conditional 4th round selection.

    Okay. That’s four trades to look at for precedent. Let’s try to dissect them a little.

    The 1993 trade of Joe Montana features the quarterback closest in age to Tony Romo. However, Montana was a 4-time Super Bowl Champion and 3-time Super Bowl MVP prior to being traded. Tony Romo has never made it to the NFC Championship game.

    Brett Favre was also a Super Bowl winning quarterback, but he was 3 years older than Tony at the time of his trade. 3 years makes a big difference this late in a quarterbacks career.

    Carson Palmer and Sam Bradford share similar situations. Neither were as good as Tony Romo at the time they were traded, however both were significantly younger...

    I don't think he's worth 2 first rounders. But if cowboys wait I definitely could see a motivated/desperate team offer up a first. Houston must REALLY regret signing brock now...one year later they could have had Romo for the same money and a 1st round draft pick

    Anyone know the deadline to release Romo? If possible, teams might wait until he's released then sign him. There's no way Dallas keeps him on the roster when they can spread the bonus hit out over 2 years.

    He's worth a 1st and a 5th.

    The timing was wrong or Minnie would have jumped at Tony. They might be real competitive with him if their line was healthy.

    I still gotta believe Denver. Elway is not set on Lynch:


    I can see Tony there for a couple years while Lynch developed, which if I remember, was a consideration for Lynch coming to Dallas.

    Elway knows better than anyone what an top quality veteran brings. Getting Manning after his neck injury was a much greater risk than signing Tony would be.

    I would immediately be a Denver fan. If we faced them in a SB, I would be thrilled.

    I doubt we'll get 1 first because it's not simply going to be sell to the highest bidder. Jerry thinks of Romo like a son I am sure he'll help him go to just about any team that Romo chooses even if it's for a 5th round pick. When the player is choosing the destiny the team that has him loses all the leverage. We may end up with a 2nd or 3rd round pick though. We're not getting 2 first round picks.
