Last week, the Dallas Cowboys announced that they had officially released long-time quarterback Tony Romo, who will move on to a new career in broadcasting. After a couple of weeks of wondering where the 4-time Pro Bowler will end up, he announced he had taken a job as the lead football analyst on CBS.

“It was a very difficult decision. I went back and forth a number of times,” Romo said on a conference call. The Texans were on top of Romo’s wish list had he still wanted to play, but he said the offer from CBS was just too good to pass up. He also said on that conference call that he expects his new broadcasting job to be difficult, but “I’ve got to attack this just like football.”

Romo, who will turn 37 in a couple of weeks and has only been able to play in five games over two seasons due to injuries, said he believes his family and his health are his top priority. Love him or hate him, his transition to TV will finish off one of the greatest and most historic undrafted free-agent stories in NFL history.

Cowboys fans will mourn the loss of their beloved quarterback, but are also excited to see their new, young quarterback in Dak Prescott step in and take the reigns.
