Where Will Romo Wind Up?

Posted by Javier Morales on 2/14/2017 4:34:45 AM

It's not often that a player once regarded as a franchise quarterback hits the free-agent market, but that appears to be the case for Tony Romo.

Even if the Dallas Cowboys are able to find another team to make a trade instead of cutting Romo, the cost likely won't be too high.

The fate of the Dallas Cowboys at quarterback is secure with Dak Prescott, so what happens with Romo will likely not affect the futures odds for Dallas. But it could affect how you gamble NFL online for another team at SportsBetting.ag.

Dallas has +800 odds to win the Super Bowl next season. It will be interesting what might happen when you gamble NFL online with Romo on another team.

This article takes a look at where Tony Romo might play next season with information provided by ESPN.

Denver Broncos

Gamble NFL online odds to win Super Bowl next season: +5000

Incumbent quarterbacks: Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch

The Broncos' passing offense was actually better in 2016 than it was during their Super Bowl year of 2015, but between Siemian's penchant for turnovers and poor play from the rookie Lynch in short spurts, it wasn't a big improvement. The running game and offensive line still need to be sorted, but John Elway didn't balk at adding a talent like Peyton Manning to this offense and disrupting the natural order of things in 2012. I'm not sure why he shouldn't do it in 2017, either. This defense is built to win right away and if Romo bounces back to even be half of what Manning was in his Denver prime, that means an instant Super Bowl contender.

Houston Texans

Gamble NFL online odds to win Super Bowl next season: +3600

Incumbent quarterbacks: Brock Osweiler, Tom Savage

There's talk about how Osweiler's contract limits the Texans, but let's think about recent examples of quarterback busts. Nick Foles, acquired by the Rams in a trade, accepted a pay cut to be released. Matt Flynn, who signed as a free agent, likely would have faced the same scenario had the Seahawks not been so far under the cap. Colin Kaepernick, who signed an extension in 2014, had to renegotiate his contract before the 49ers would let him play this year. If the Texans come to Osweiler with a pay-cut-or-benching ultimatum, the team has a lot of leverage.The Texans have had a garbage offense every year under Bill O'Brien, no matter what they do, because they can't get a good quarterback. A healthy Romo would immediately change that and make them a real AFC contender instead of a squad that ducks and covers the second it runs into a real playoff team.

Los Angeles Rams

Gamble NFL online odds to win Super Bowl next season: +12500

Incumbent quarterbacks: Jared Goff, Case Keenum

The Rams have a lot of the attributes of a successful bounce-back season in place. They have Wade Phillips coaching a powerful front seven, and they've finally pushed Jeff Fisher out the door, giving the offense a chance to grow. On its face it seems blasphemous to bench a quarterback drafted No. 1 overall, but Goff was horrible last season. Romo could be a bridge quarterback to allow Goff to get another year of education and training, while simultaneously rebuilding his own value for a quick free-agent strike in 2018. It's a bit awkward, but this team could absolutely make a play for an NFC wild-card spot with better quarterback play in 2017.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Gamble NFL online odds to win Super Bowl next season: +8000

Incumbent quarterbacks: Blake Bortles, Chad Henne

Speaking of teams hamstrung by bad quarterback play in 2016: We all witnessed this offense drag a much-improved Jaguars defense down as Jacksonville finished 3-13. The Jaguars invested a high draft pick in Bortles, and that most of the people who did this are still in the building. But it is difficult to have any confidence in Bortles with this sort of run-oriented/defense-heavy game plan. This is a team that is screaming out for a quarterback who can play smart. And Romo, throwing to a core of Allen Robinson, Marqise Lee and Allen Hurns, could be a devastating development for an AFC South that nobody has been able to really seize for the last two seasons. Perhaps Marcus Mariota and the Titans will make a surge for the division this year, but if you're the Jaguars, what do you have to lose by putting your chips on the table? They don't even have enough faith in Bortles to exercise his fifth-year option. With Romo, they're a division contender.
