New Odds Say Tony Romo Headed to Broncos or Texans

New odds say former Cowboys QB Tony Romo will join the Denver Broncos or Houston Texans.


Tony Romo is likely headed to Denver or Houston, reportedly via a trade.

He will be entering his 13th season and has played in just five games over the last two years due to injury. He has thrown for 34,183 yards and 248 touchdowns in his career.

Legendary oddsmaker Kenny White said that if the Broncos acquire Romo, he'd set the Over/Under in Vegas on their regular-season wins at 10.5 or 11. With Trevor Siemian or Paxton Lynch, Denver's win total would be 9.


The Broncos are -115 to land Romo, meaning you'd need to wager $115 just to win $100. They're the odds-on favorites and could mount another Super Bowl run with Romo at the helm.

Initially, the Denver line opened at +170 (risk $100 to win $170). But heavy action on the Broncos made them the clear favorite.


The Texans are +130. If they had stuck with Brock Osweiler, whom they sent to the Browns on Thursday, their win total would be 8.5. White would post 10 if they landed Romo. Behind one of the NFL's top defenses, the Texans could mount a deep playoff run.

Houston cleared salary cap space by shipping Osweiler to Cleveland, but will they be able to negotiate a trade for Romo?

The Chicago Bears are 7/1 to land Romo. The Bears signed Tampa Bay Buccaneers backup QB Mike Glennon to a 3-year deal. Still, Glennon is unproven and could ride the pine behind a bridge QB like Romo.

The New York Jets are 9/1. Coming off a dismal season in which Ryan Fitzpatrick imploded. The Jets have been unloading players like Brandon Marshall, Darrelle Revis and Nick Mangold. Bringing in Romo won't save the franchise and make them an immediate Super Bowl contender, but they do have $33 million in cap space. They're reportedly trying to trade for Trevor Siemien.

The Cleveland Browns are 17/1. They've been linked to Patriots backup QB Jimmy Garoppolo, but just got Osweiler. Reports are that Cleveland could actually cut their new addition, paving the way for another QB. The Browns cycled through a half-dozen QBs last season as their endless search for a competent signal-caller continues.

The San Francisco 49ers are also 17/1. They signed ex-Bear Brian Hoyer, but coach Kyle Shanahan said he doesn't view Hoyer as a starter. Redskins franchise player Kirk Cousins has also been linked to the Bay Area to reunite with Shanahan, his former OC.

Speaking of the Washington Redskins, they're 27/1 to sign Romo. If Washington loses Cousins to San Francisco, they'd immediately be in the market for a QB. Would Romo go to a hated division rival?

Any other NFL team -- the Field -- is 8/1.
