Tony Romo, Jerry Jones may already have an interesting agreement in place

Tony Romo will not be a member of the Washington Redskins, or any division rival. That is if you believe what Jerry Jones is putting out there, via Star-Telegram:

"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 was responding to a rumor from NFL Network that involved the Cowboys being included in a three-way trade that would send Kirk Cousins to the San Francisco 49ers, Romo to the Redskins and draft picks to the Cowboys.

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.
