What a day Tuesday turned out to be in the life of now former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.
Early Tuesday morning, a report surfaced that Romo would be retiring to pursue a broadcasting career instead of returning to the field.
As the day progressed, Romo went from budding broadcaster to the top NFL TV analyst on CBS alongside play-by-play man Jim Nantz and soon-to-be golf commentator.
Romo’s arrival to the CBS booth brings the curtain down on his 14-year NFL career – and the salad days of Phil Simms as a broadcaster.
Simms had been the lead NFL analyst on CBS since 1998.
As for Romo, shortly before news of his new CBS job leaked, he was officially released by the Cowboys on Tuesday.
Thus, with Dallas out of the mix, Romo’s road to a long-awaited, potential trip to the Super Bowl would have likely gone through the AFC and the New England Patriots.
Tony, I wouldn’t have wanted any of that either.
