After 15 years of playing pro ball, Tony Romo is hanging up his cleats.
ESPN reported that Romo will go into broadcasting after the Dallas Cowboys release him today. His retirement is health related according to sources, citing the most import thing to Romo is his health and his family.
While he plans to retire, football isn't completely out of the questions for the 15-year vet; he has now become the emergency backup QB that teams can pay to come out of retirement according to an NFL VP.
Romo's latter years have been marred by injuries, with him missing most of the 2015 season, and never seeing the field in 2016 after he suffered a fracture of his vertebrae.
In 10 seasons as Dallas' starter, Romo has thrown for 4,183 yards, 248 touchdowns, and 117 interceptions.
Best of luck Tony!
