Tony Romo wants to play for at least four more years

Published Add your comment

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo didn't have the best 2015 season a player could ask for as he spent the majority of it on the sidelines.

Romo only played four games this season with America's Team due to injuries to his left shoulder on two occasions. He originally broke his left collarbone against the Philadelphia Eagles in week two, returned in week 11, only to be sidelined again with another left shoulder injury in week 12 against the Carolina Panthers.

Alongside his age, as he will turn 36 before the start of the 2016 season, many have questioned if his time in the NFL is coming to an end. However, Romo has said to HBO's Bill Simmons, who mentioned to Cousin Sal on his podcast according to Marc Sessler of Around the NFL that he has no plans to hang up the cleats just yet.

The article said: "I look forward to the bidding war for Romo (for post-career television work), because there is a 100 percent chance ... If I were him, I don't know whether I'd want to do games or studio," Simmons said, per "I think I would want to do games."

"What are we talking about?" asked Cousin Sal. "He has four years left. He's going to win a Super Bowl. Don't worry about this."

"He said that," Simmons replied. "He said he has at least four."

Considering quarterbacks like Tom Brady have spoken about playing into their 40s, this comes as no surprise. Romo will be hoping injuries don't crop up on him again and this might be a concern for Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who might decide to draft a quarterback or pick one up from the free agency (perhaps Johnny Manziel or Robert Griffin III) once it opens. 

2016 will be a big year for the 35-year-old and it could ultimately decide the future fate of the quarterback. His dead cap drops considerably over the next two seasons, so it will be easier for the Cowboys to cut him if he underperforms over the next few years.
