Jerry Jones Says Tony Romo May Remain With Cowboys

Maybe Tony Romo will stay with the Dallas Cowboys after all.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones would not rule out that possibility, despite the widespread expectation that the longtime franchise quarterback is poised to resume his career elsewhere in the wake of Dak Prescott’s emergence last season.

“There’s nothing I would rule out or dismiss as not being a possibility,” Jones said Saturday at the NFL scouting combine during a session with a handful of media that included USA TODAY Sports.

For weeks, the expectation has been that the Cowboys will grant Romo his release – barring the longshot possibility of a trade – as he seeks to find a team and play again.

“I don’t know that,” Jones said when asked if Romo wants to hit the market. “He’s considering options.”

Jones has contended for weeks that Romo will be involved in any decision regarding his future. He said that he and Romo had a meeting during the period following Dallas’ elimination from the NFC playoffs in the divisional round and Super Bowl LI. He indicated that final decision resulted from the meeting and added that no additional face-to-face meeting is needed with Romo if they are on the verge of a move, although they would need to have additional communication.
