Tony Romo was once described by the great sports announcer Al Michaels as a No. 1 draft choice as a broadcast analyst. Now that his NFL career is in flux, the Dallas Cowboys quarterback has received interest from a couple of different networks, the latest being CBS, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
It's not just FOX in pursuit of Cowboys QB Tony Romo; it's also CBS making a strong push to add him to its team, per sources.

Romo could still end up playing for an NFL team during the 2017 season. However, as things currently stand the market for his services remains remarkably weak.
The Denver Broncos are likely the team with the best chance to land him, but they won’t make a trade for the 13-year veteran in order to make it happen. Furthermore, head coach Vance Joseph recently said the team “hasn’t had one meeting” about bringing Romo on board.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones remains reluctant to release his longtime quarterback outright, hoping against hope that one team might give up assets to land Romo. However, given his injury history the past few seasons that scenario is extremely unlikely.
Retirement has reportedly been on the table as a viable option for Romo since the end of the season. Though, if he does decide to hang up his pads and helmet for good, it sounds like he won’t be unemployed for long.
