Elway, Broncos ready to pursue Tony Romo if released

While no word has come down just yet, it would make perfect and understandable sense for Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys to give quarterback Tony Romo his walking papers.

And Romo’s best-case scenario would be to land in the mile high city – an AFC team that would find Jones’ approval (the major concern for him is Romo ending up somewhere like NFC division rival Washington).

‘ One agent source also told 9News that Romo’s preferred choice is the Broncos. Denver is not the only team expected to pursue Romo, though.
