Adam Schefter of ESPN passed along word Friday that Fox Sports leads the group of potential landing spots. The report also noted Romo is still focused on playing, at least for now.
Todd Archer and Schefter reported Wednesday the team was expected to release the 36-year-old by the opening of free agency. The Cowboys were planning to utilize a post-June 1 designation to save $14 million in cap space.
The move never materialized, though.
The big hinderance: Romo's $24.7 million cap hit for 2017 is the highest in the league. On the bright side for Dallas, besides having second-year man Dak Prescott under center, is the weak quarterback market.
Ultimately, Romo will still likely be released because of his contract. If retirement becomes a serious option, he possesses the knowledge and charisma to transition to television. It's a career move that would take stress off his body after consistent injury trouble in recent years.
