Vance Joseph on Tony Romo: He’s under contract so he’s a non-issue

Newly signed Broncos guard Ronald Leary says he’s not going to spend any time recruiting quarterback Tony Romo to join him in Denver and said the team has “two great young quarterbacks” in Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch.

Broncos coach Vance Joseph and General Manager John Elway have both offered similarly positive comments about their current quarterbacks and they did so again during a Monday press conference. Elway said the team is “excited” about Siemian and Lynch and didn’t discuss Romo because the quarterback remains under contract with the Cowboys.

Joseph said the same thing and extended it to conversations around the team facility as well. He said there hasn’t been one meeting where Romo has been discussed because it’s a “non-issue” for the team unless Romo is out of his contract.

The team could discuss trading for Romo, of course, but there’s been no sign that the Broncos are willing to make such a move and Elway said Monday that “nothing’s changed since the combine” for the team. Word around the Texans has been that they are also averse to making a trade, leaving the status quo in place across the board.

  1. These guys are clowns there is no way John horseteeth elway and whoever the GM in Houston is are gonna outdeal Jerry Jones I’ll tell ya what’s gonna happen either one of these two teams is gonna trade for Romo or some unsuspecting team is gonna loose a QB to injury in training camp that’s when Jerry Jones will pounce

  2. Nice strategy. Way to look uninterested. If Romo gets released , they are going to throw a blank check at Romo to fight off the Texans and other teams whom await. Broncos and Texans are preparing for a bidding war but fail to realized Dallas has seen their poker hand. Romo won’t get released. Pay up!

  3. He’s learned the first rule of an NFL HC: Say only the right things in the media — regardless of factual basis — and say nothing else.

    Nevertheless, with Ware gone and without a top-ten qb, 10-6 at best, 2nd or 3rd in the division and missing the playoffs. Too much in AFC to overcome.

    Sorry pal, Denver doesn’t over pay. Particularly for a 37 year old glass china doll with only 2 career playoff wins.

  5. A contingent pick o performance and snaps is all it would take.

    Texas should make the deal. It could be the difference between 12-4 or 8-8.
