CBS is reportedly looking at Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo as a color man and as a potential replacement for Phil Simms

With his future with the Dallas Cowboys up in the air, could Tony Romo be going to the broadcast booth?

According to Ian Rapoport of, CBS is looking at Romo as a potential replacement for Phil Simms in the broadcast booth.

Besides going to the broadcast booth, there are other options for the Cowboys quarterback. Romo could remain with the Cowboys as a backup for Dak Prescott, which likely won’t happen. He could also be traded to a team like the Houston Texans or the Denver Broncos or be released.

CBS isn’t the only network that is going after the quarterback. Fox wants to replace John Lynch with the Cowboys quarterback, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Schefter notes that the quarterback’s goal is to play.

If Romo does go to CBS, he would be the second Cowboys quarterback to go to the broadcast booth as Troy Aikman joined FOX after his career ended. The move would be a good one since Simms is one of the most hated broadcasters and fans have criticized him on Twitter, most notably according to Cindy Boren of the Washington Post.
