The Tony Romo rumors are officially getting wacky. A report has surfaced suggesting a rare three-team trade including the veteran quarterback could occur.
Earlier in the month, reports surfaced that the Washington Redskins and San Francisco 49ers could make a trade involving Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins, who Washington franchise-tagged earlier in the week.
That’s already odd enough, but here’s where the monkey wrench (Romo) comes in. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that the Redskins and 49ers could loop in the Cowboys in a three-team deal that could send Cousins to San Francisco, Romo to the Redskins and draft picks to the Cowboys.
In that scenario, the Cowboys would trade their longtime starting quarterback to a fierce division rival, who would be trading their potential franchise quarterback to San Francisco.
There’s a reason why the Cowboys haven’t released Romo, even though the veteran quarterback expects to be let go at some point. Clearly, the unpredictable nature of the NFL warrants Dallas’ patience.
Buckle up, because the Romo rumors might have just been taken up a notch.
