I don't like to SMASH on posters opinions, and I do like most of the off-season moves BUT there is no chance in hell Dallas gets THAT much return for a much older QB to a team clearly far from a SB contention.

Far too optimistic IMO.

Bradford an often injured by who has done less than romo has been traded twice, once to the eagles for foles, a 2nd and 4th then a 2nd time to the Vikings for a 1st and 4th

Lol, Sam Bradford is 7 years younger than Romo.

The trade bounty you are projecting for Romo is ludicrous.

I think it's too much, but not ludicrous.

Bradford is 7 years younger, every bit as injury prone if not more so... and he is several tiers lower in capability.

The chance to put Romo behind center for $14m is going to attract several teams... and that will create a bidding war. And that will drive the price up.

I bet Dallas gets a first plus a conditional.

Knees and back though are two different animals. Coupled with the age, I just can't see a team stepping up that high. I'm thinking you could reverse what you said. Dallas gets a pick (3rd rder) and a conditional pick, that has potential to be a first rder.

Romo is going to have to want to go to a team. If he got traded to the Browns, he'd probably just retire. Not to mention, Jerry loves Romo, and I believe would only send him somewhere he was willing to go.

If you are a Houston, Denver, Buffalo, or even KC, I think you seriously consider it. Might end up being a 2nd and a 4th or something like that. Plus, the caps going up.

Do you think Jerry and Tony work something out to help both parties? Romo takes a small paycut if Jerry trades him to a list of preferred teams?

Romo is still a very good qb and when he's on the field he's an easy top 10 guy at the postion. However for how long and can he stay on the field? Because of that for the right team he's prob worth a second, but can't imagine anything higher.

And As others have said Romo doesn't deserve to go to the dumpster fire that is Cleveland. Behind that line he'd last maybe 2 games.

And browns really shouldn't be looking to give up picks for a qb. They need to address plenty of other spots with those draft picks.

I was being tongue in cheek. But it would be doing Romo dirty to trade him to a rebuilding team... and honestly a rebuilding team wouldn't have the interest a contender minus QB would.

But a contender minus QB like Houston would be silly to not take a shot while they have a team that is otherwise in the heart of their window... and the fact that there is more than one team fitting that descritption and only one Romo caliber QB out there drives the price up.

Seriously your free agent/trade options go downhill fast:

Romo
Cousins (maybe, if skins don't stick with him)
Taylor (maybe, if Buffalo drops him)
Keenum
Hill
McGloin
Manuel
and it goes downhill from there

And a rookie is going to cost you a host of draft picks and maybe never be anything. If you've got a team that is a QB away from true contention, Romo is a relatively small risk for a very big reward.

I think a more realistic trade partner would be Denver, since they are projected to add two more 3rd round compensatory picks. Maybe their 3rd and a future 4th that can escalate depending on performance and team success.

I would tell Denver good luck with Siemian if they offered that.

You might be able to get a 1st for him (my guess is a 2018 1st rounder after the draft), but 3 premium picks is a ludicrous bounty to give up for a 37 year old QB who hasn't been able to stay healthy since 2014.
