The Dallas Cowboys are reportedly preparing to sever ties with longtime quarterback Tony Romo.
The team may release Romo on Thursday, according to an early but unconfirmed report by WFAA in Dallas.
The NFL’s new “league year” starts Thursday, which is also the first day of player free agency.
Romo might be given and outright release or designated as a post-June 1 cut. His 2017 salary is set to be $14 million.
Romo has been with the Cowboys for 13 years, but lost his starting job this past season to rookie sensation Dak Prescott. Back and bone injuries have limited him to fewer than a half-dozen games in the past two years.
