As Jerry Jones and crew decide what to do with veteran quarterback Tony Romo, the now backup signal-caller has made it very clear where he wants to go.
The short answer is Denver, but unfortunately for Romo, the Broncos have experienced no interest, as they’re looking to move forward with their young prospects in Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch.
However, that isn’t preventing wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders from discussing the possibility.
“I believe I would benefit,” he said. “But one thing about it is: I’m always gonna take it back and I’m just gonna put it on (general manager) John Elway. In John Elway I trust. If he does bring him over, I think Tony Romo will fit good in (offensive coordinator Mike) McCoy’s system. It’s a no-huddle, up-tempo offense. I think that it’s gonna be similar to the Cowboys. I think he has Demaryius Thomas and some receiver No. 10 on the other side. I feel like we will win ballgames with Tony Romo or potentially a championship. At the same time, Paxton Lynch played in a spread offense at Memphis and he can be successful. I think Trevor (Siemian) can be successful. We’ll see what we do. I can’t sit up here and say ‘Bring Tony Romo!’ because I also have two other quarterbacks that are playing really well too.”
While John Elway seems firm on his decision thus far, his mind could change in the coming weeks or months. Considering Denver has an elite defense, Romo could be the missing piece to put Denver over the top.
