Charley Casserly Thinks Tony Romo Could Retire, Not Play In 2017

ATLANTA -- NFL Network analyst and former Washington Redskins general manager Charley Casserly joined "A to Z with Mark Zinno" on Wednesday and spent some time talking about the quarterback landscape around the league.

Casserly wasn't high on Kirk Cousins, saying he's not a top 10 quarterback in the NFL. He also agreed with Zinno that Jay Cutler would be a Week 1 starter for some team in the 2017 season. Not necessarily because Cutler is highly sought after, but because there are too many teams in the NFL that need a quarterback.

When asked where Tony Romo might land, Casserly offered a different idea.

"Maybe retired," Casserly said. "If there was a team that was after him, we might know it by now."

Then Casserly opined on what kind of landing spot Romo would consider.

"Will Houston or Denver jump out," Casserly asked. "Denver seems all in on [Paxton] Lynch and Houston is sitting there with a lot of money in [Brock] Osweiler and they like Tom Savage. Logic says if they can make a deal it would work for both sides.

"I don't see him [Romo] going to teams like the Jets or Cleveland or Chicago or San Francisco, maybe I'm wrong. Again, three back surgeries at his age, that contract would have to be very favorable to the club. [There are] a lot of issues here."
