Tony Romo may be retiring, but he’s about to become a sought-after free agent again.

With this morning’s news that the Cowboys quarterback is leaving the game to focus on a television career, the next wave of speculation will be where that career will continue.

According to Todd Archer of ESPN, Romo has already received interest from at least three networks — CBS, FOX, and NBC.

The CBS link has been out there, with him as a possible replacement for Phil Simms in the broadcast booth.

The report also suggests that Romo could make a decision on his next job as early as today.

Of course, he could always head out on a free agent tour, but visiting network executives rather than the Broncos or the Texans or any other teams.

    But can he hold a microphone all season without injury?

    Has the whiff of the awkward dad giving his 18-year old son permission to drink in the basement so the kid’s buddies will think he’s cool.

    As a fan of the game I thank him for the entertainment and wish him well in his future career. Success behind a microphone is not a given, Montana and Rice to name a couple of examples, hopefully whatever network he lands on brings him along at a considered pace.

    What a complete tool. Always has been.

    How do people like this become popular and/or make so much money for being so mediocre at something?

    Anyone and I mean anyone would be better than Phil Sims.

    Congratulations to Tony Romo for a fantastic career with the Cowboys. I hope your injuries, specifically your back, all heal and you can enjoy your retirement with your family along with great health in the future. Thanks for some fantastic memories between the lines.

    True. But the same could be said of all the FOX color guys except John Lynch and Daryl Johnston, and Lynch is now GMing in Frisco. FOX is in much more dire need of a decent color guy than CBS.

    Wish he was going to be covering the NFC. I would think that would be his preference too—though the top spot at FOX is not available.
