    Well he will ask for his release. There isn't a chance that Romo takes a pay cut and stays as a backup QB. IMO that's just pie in the sky wishful thinking. I wouldn't blame him for asking for his release after what he's given this franchise.

    Romo isn't retiring and it's highly unlikely that Jerry will go after Romo's signing bonus. They would not jeopardize any future positions within the organization. Jerry is very fond of Romo I don't see under any circumstance that he would do that. If Romo asked for his release the boys would grant his request, no doubt about it. But all this talk about backup QB, retirement and going after him for money is all hogwash.

    The only other way that I can think of that protects DAL is re-doing his deal but leaving his 2017 salary alone at 14m

    DAL wouldn't get any immediate salary cap relief but they would cut his 2018 and 2019 salaries to 14m each

    They would tell Romo that if they traded him his 2018 salary would become guaranteed
    But if they didn't trade him 14m salary would be restructured and his 2018 salary would be 1m, all guaranteed

    They cut DWare and they will not just roll over for Romo......the salary cap is very real.....they will not release Romo outright.......they will trade him without his approval first....I think you greatly overestimate any sentimentality

    If he wants to retire then he can lower his contract to 1m in exchange for not going after his SB
    That will give DAL immediate cap space until he officially retires post June 1st

    The perceived QB situation before preseason would have been Romo starting and Dak somewhere else on the deoth chart, both making whatever their contract calls for.

    Regardless of who starts, their salaries dont change, therefore, neither does the sum of their salaries.

    Dak + Romo = Romo + Dak

    Tony's salary is not an issue for the next two years. We keep them both because we can and until we can't.

    A rich man should never apologize for being wealthy and that is why we also keep Leary and McFadden..

    This is all assuming Dak still progresses and continues to improve. If he hits a wall or defenses start figuring him out Romo isn't going anywhere and neither is his salary until the team absolutely knows Dak can carry the team.

    Wait, what?

    What is the difference between being cut or released? It's all one in the same. No I think you greatly underestimate how he is perceived by Jones and Garrett and the club. They will want Romo at some point in the future to be apart of this franchise in some capacity. Football is in his blood he lives it. He has a future in this league as a coach it's obvious. Sorry they are not just going to trade Romo without his approval to where he goes he's not some mid level player or talent smh at this stuff. 6 games and people think that this franchise is just going to toss Romo or tell him he's a backup. lol do some of you really believe this? If so I have some great investments opportunities for you, PM me for details!

    Romo's salary cap hit of 24.7m next year in untenable.....it has to be reduced and who is the starter is of utmost importance.....but these are just the scenarios for Romo.......staying the course is not one of them

    Future coach???? Playing for the Jets wouldn't change that ......they just had Favre Day in GB...we were there

    This thread is about the numbers not sentimental feelings

    Probably a straight restructure but a possible full renegotiation.......he is out of guaranteed money

    Before the draft : "We HAVE to get a QB in the draft. Tony has no back up, we have no successor, and it killed us last year."

    After a few games : (Romo down) "This Dak kid is special. He should be our starter. Let's trade or release Romo so we can go right back to our 2015 problem."

    Makes sense.

    Seems plausible. Romo is a good dude and very wealthy man.

    Jay Cutker is not taking any losses or doing a club any favors but I believe Tony would consider something sensible

    Since when should the facts interfere with anything. Romo should do it because he . . . well I can't think of a reason

    This isn't about advocating either position...just what some of the scenarios will be

    Well we can discuss Favre and why there was Favre day another time.

    If Romo retired and they went after his signing bonuses it would absolutely change any future he had with the club. If they flat out traded Romo without his input it would flat out change any future he had with the club. I never said him willingly playing for another club would have an impact on his future with this organization in the future. I am saying that he would be bitter if they did the above that you stated, like suing him for his SB. You can't just merely talk numbers when discussing a 14 year veteran who has been the face of the franchise for the better part of a decade. He is the homegrown boy and the Jones are are very fond of him. That has to be taken into consideration

    And what will be the excuse when Dak collapses? He has played 6 games. He hasn't yet played to Tony's level. He might turn into another RGIII.
