Broncos president doesn’t know what team will do about Tony Romo

With Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo headed for the open market on Thursday, only two teams have been linked to him in a serious way. The president of one of those teams was asked about Romo on Wednesday night.

And while it’s always risky to say anything more about a player currently under contract with another team than “I can’t talk about a player under contract with another team,” Joe Ellis didn’t really say much of anything when asked about whether the Broncos will pursue quarterback Tony Romo.

I’ll leave that to [G.M.] John [Elway],’’ Ellis told Mike Klis of 9news.com. “I don’t know what John’s plans are specifically. I make a point of not asking him because then I would know and I’d have to tell you right now. . . . It will be interesting to see what we do. I’m sure John has a plan and he’s ready to execute it.”

This implies that the plan will consist of pursuing Romo. Indeed, if Elway had no interest in Romo, there would be no plan to execute.

Neither the Broncos nor the Texans nor anyone else can do anything until Romo officially is released. Once he is, any and all plans and non-plans can be executed.

    We know what the Cowboys will do about Romo.

    Nothing, absolutely nothing. Well, other than eat a ton of cap space, get nothing in return, and spending another $5M on the likes of McCown as backup. Since he’s being cut, his leaving the team won’t even get them a compensatory pick.

    He could also be saying that Elway has a plan, he doesn’t know that plan and therefore doesn’t know whether Romo is or isn’t in that plan. Then what does it imply?

    Tony will be a Bronco by the end of the weekend. Patriot fans scared again and I love it.

    He’s about to be a Bronco, period. What did Elway give up?
