3 Reasons why teams shouldn’t acquire Tony Romo


 

Dak Prescott is the man that ran Tony Romo out of Dallas. Now all there’s left to do is predict where Mr. Candice Crawford will end up. But here’s the thing – should teams actually try and acquire Tony Romo? I submit not. We’re not talking about trading for Tom Brady here, folks. Here’s why NFL clubs should stay away.

Tony Romo Revised

Age

I don’t mean to sound like an ageist, because, well, I am older than Romo! But the fact is Romo will be 37 and a half by the time the next football season begins. That is downright ancient for a quarterback. It’s the time when their skills begin to erode. And at his hefty salary is it worth it?

Injury-prone

Let me get this straight – Romo has played behind what is statistically the best offensive line in all of football for a the last few years, and he can’t stay healthy? Why in the world would a team with a lesser o-line even contemplate taking on a quarterback who hasn’t played a full season in a while?

Lack of winning

Yes, Tony Romo has a winning record for his career. But he has ever won a title? He has gotten to a Super Bowl? Is he known for making that clutch play down the stretch? For teams thinking that Romo could be a quick fix for their team, they should examine his actual track record and realize that a rookie fourth round pick was able to unseat him.
