Report: "Agent source" letting it be known Tony Romo's preferred destination

Romo, 37, is still seen as a top quarterback when uninjured.

Tony Romo will be a Denver Bronco if all goes according to plan, per 9news' Mike Klis.

"Multiple NFL sources tell 9News Broncos general manager John Elway and the team are ready to pursue Romo if and when the quarterback is released by Jones and the Dallas Cowboys.

One agent source also told 9News that Romo's preferred choice is the Broncos."

Despite reports of a potential blockbuster trade, Romo is still expected to be released by the Cowboys, and it looks like he has one destination in mind that he would even take a pay cut for.

Romo is set to make $14 million in salary for the 2017 season under his current contract, but he has a cap hold of $24 million. Romo's contract also includes salaries of $19.5 million and $20.5 million for the 2018 and 2019 seasons, per Spotrac.

Those salary numbers are a big reason why Romo will likely be cut over traded. It is difficult to move him at that cap hit number, and the Cowboys would likely prefer to clear his contract off the books altogether.

Other teams listed as possible suitors for Romo include the Houston Texans, San Francisco 49ers, Cleveland Browns, New York Jets and Buffalo Bills, per 9news.

Romo and team owner Jerry Jones apparently already have a "wink-nod" agreement in place, via Star-Telegram, that would remove any possibility of sending the quarterback to play in Washington:

"The idea of Romo playing in Washington is a non starter for Jones because he wouldn't trade him to a division rival, and there is an unspoken understanding that Romo wouldn't sign with the Redskins as a free agent if he was released.

There is no deal to guarantee such an action but Jones feels confident in his relationship with Romo that he would abide by the "do-right rule."

Jones detailed that another meeting with the star quarterback isn't needed to discuss Romo's future, as they outlined different scenarios before the Super Bowl that could work for both sides.

Free agency opens on March 9. It'll be anyone's guess on if Romo will be on the open market by then or not.

Romo, 37, is still seen as a top quarterback when uninjured. Of course, injuries have derailed Romo's past two seasons, and rookie Dak Prescott was able to usurp the starting quarterback position in 2016.
