Tony Romo will be the talk of the NFL offseason, and he apparently doesn’t have a shortage of suitors.
According to ESPN’s Todd Archer, teams vying for Romo’s services include the known (Houston Texans, Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers) and one surprising unknown: the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Seen as a team ready to take the step from pretender to contender last season, the Jaguars fell backwards into a 3-13 season under now-fired head coach Gus Bradley.
They paired a young defense with an up-and-coming offense in 2016 and things just didn’t pan out. Are they a quarterback away from being a true Super Bowl contender? Probably not.
But Jacksonville could run away with the AFC South under Romo and could be a true wild card come January.
If Jerry Jones is dedicated to doing what’s best for Romo, he won’t land in Jacksonville. If it comes down to actually making a trade and bringing back picks though, the Jaguars could be a decent option.
