Earlier this week on Tuesday, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo conceded the starting job at the team to Dak Prescott after the rookie had taken the team to an 8-1 record while he was sidelined.
Romo will now serve as Prescott's backup for the rest of the season barring injury, but his concession speech only added fuel to the fire as to how long the 36-year-old will remain in Dallas.
According to a report by Ian Rapoport, Romo is already looking for a way out of the organization.

Rapoport reported on Sunday that the four-time Pro Bowler already has his eyes on a move to the Denver Broncos: "If general manager John Elway decides Paxton Lynch needs another year and that Trevor Siemian isn't the guy."
The highly-reliable NFL Insider also noted that other trade destinations could be the Bears, Jets, Cardinals, and Bills. If the Cowboys decide to trade Romo: "they'll still have to deal with about a $20 million salary-cap hit." Due to the fact any move will likely result in the quarterback renegotiating his deal, he has a big say in where he goes and could possibly veto any move.

This wouldn't be the first time the Broncos have picked up a veteran quarterback, as before the beginning of the 2012 season they signed Peyton Manning, who went on to take the team to two Super Bowls - winning one - after four seasons.
If a trade for Romo comes into fruition, Denver will be hoping they can repeat that success.
The offseason is still months away, so as long as Romo remains the backup for the Cowboys, expect the trade talk to continue and intensify, especially when you take into account the quarterback's desire to be a starter.
