Romo is likely to be released by the Cowboys within the next two weeks, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Romo's future with the Cowboys has been the subject of much discussion since quarterback Dak Prescott emerged as Dallas' long-term answer at the position over the course of his sensational rookie campaign. After backing Prescott to fulfill that role following his mid-season return from a back injury, Romo continued to do well by the Cowboys, who are expected to reward him by allowing him to dictate his future team in return. That opportunity will most likely come by Romo being released, which is a process that could be accelerated by talks held at this week's scouting combine. While where Romo will play in 2017 remains uncertain, it seems news on that front could surface sooner than later.

Team owner and general manager Jerry Jones is expected to make the decision on the future of Romo soon, but Jones said he has not yet spoken with the veteran quarterback, Charean William of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

It was previously reported that the two sides would speak before the NFL Scouting Combine, and that begins Tuesday. Rookie Dak Prescott stepped in for the injured veteran and had a magical season. Prescott is expected to start in 2017, but it is possible the veteran Romo could be kept around as insurance. It would likely take a pay cut to make that happen. Vegas even has odds on Romo's 2017 team, and the Cowboys are considered the favorite (along with the Broncos).

Romo will likely discuss his future with owner/GM Jerry Jones before the NFL Scouting Combine, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Before the NFL officially kicks off its annual period of scrutiny regarding prospects on Feb. 28, the Cowboys brass led by Jones are expected to meet with Romo and discuss the best course of action with their long-time quarterback. With Romo out of the lineup last season, Dak Prescott helmed the offense impeccably, proving that the Cowboys are in good hands under center. There appears to be a willingness from Romo's camp to rework his contract and facilitate a trade to an interested organization, netting the Cowboys assets in the process. No matter how the offseason proceeds, he's on the road to residing in new climes for the first time in his lengthy career.

Romo expects to be released by the Cowboys this offseason, Ed Werder of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

A preseason compression fracture of the L1 vertebrae in Romo's back allowed the Cowboys to discover their quarterback for years to come in Dak Prescott, who along with fellow rookie RB Ezekiel Elliott helped their side to the No. 1 seed on the NFC side of the playoff bracket in 2016. With Prescott entrenched at the top of the QB depth chart, Dallas' front office has a tough call on its hands with Romo this offseason. If Romo is to be believed, he'll enter the open market in the coming weeks or months, giving him another chance to start elsewhere. Clearly, interested parties will have to weigh risk versus reward, but a 78-49 record as a starter and more than 34,000 passing yards on his odometer will likely supersede the soon-to-be 37-year-old's checkered medical chart.

Romo's future with the Cowboys is in question, the Dallas Morning News reports. "It's a juncture we have to address," owner and general manager Jerry Jones said. "I don't know how ultimately we will resolve this and nobody should be alarmed because you don't have all the answers. There are some issues here that you just have to see how the cards are playing. But we'll work to this."

EDGE Analysis

Romo suffered yet another debilitating injury in the preseason, paving the way for Dak Prescott to direct Dallas' offense with a surprising veteran savvy. As Romo grew closer to full health from a compression fracture of the L1 vertebrae in his back, Prescott established a stranglehold on the starting gig with an 11-game winning streak, the tail end of which Romo yielded to the rookie. Active from Week 11 onward, Romo served as Prescott's primary backup, making one brief appearance in the season finale. The Cowboys are now sure to explore all options, whether it's via trade, cutting Romo, or keeping him around as an insurance policy for Prescott.

Romo wasn't listed on the Cowboys' injury report Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Although he was absent from practice last Thursday due to an illness, Romo took part Friday and clearly showed no ill-effects during the initial session of divisional-round prep. He'll continue onward as the primary backup to starting QB Dak Prescott.

Romo returned to practice Friday after missing Thursday's session due to illness, Kate Hairopoulos of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Romo's activity level in Friday's session is yet to be revealed, but it's encouraging that his illness didn't linger long. Furthermore, with another week before the Cowboys will appear in the playoffs, Romo figures to be healthy to back up Dak Prescott next Sunday.

Romo missed Thursday's practice due to "flu-like symptoms," the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

In the midst of a bye week, the Cowboys are growing ever healthier, but Romo arrived at the team's practice facility and went home after his situation was ascertained. Once divisional-round prep ramps up next week, he'll likely be good to go, but a backup role clearly awaits behind rookie Dak Prescott.

Romo played for only one series in Week 17's loss to the Eagles but made it count, completing three of four passes for 29 yards and a touchdown.

EDGE Analysis

He showed no rust whatsoever despite having not played a regular season game since Thanksgiving last season, and Romo should head into the playoffs as the Cowboys' primary backup behind Dak Prescott. Expect Romo to be in another uniform next year, but it looks like he can still be a productive QB in the NFL -- for however many games he can stay healthy, at least.

Romo is now expected to see action in Week 17's game against the Eagles, ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Previously, word from the Cowboys was that Dak Prescott would start in Week 17 before being replaced by Mark Sanchez, but it now appears as though the team might use all three quarterbacks Sunday. Romo hasn't played in a regular season game since a Thanksgiving loss to the Panthers in 2015, and with Prescott now established as the franchise's QB of the present and the future, this would likely end up being Romo's final game in a Cowboys uniform.
