Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has opted to retire, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports this morning.

There are multiple reports that Romo will focus on a broadcasting career.

Previous story on Texans and Romo talk continues below.


PHOENIX — Bill O'Brien came to the AFC coaches breakfast on Tuesday with a stock response when the questions about Tony Romo arrived.

"I've had no conversations with the Cowboys," the Houston Texans coach said.

For weeks, speculation has pegged Houston as the likely landing spot for Romo. But the quarterback remains in limbo. No trade. No release. Yet.

And not much from O'Brien about the prospect of adding Romo to his mix.

"I’m a coach. I don’t have any trade discussions with anybody, and like you said, he’s under contract with the Cowboys and that’s really all I can say about that," O'Brien said. "I’m not going to get into speculation of whether he’s released, what we (would do). Like I said, and I really mean it, we’re really looking forward to working with the guys that we know are going to be there on April 17th, at every position."
