Jerry Jones: No truth to any rumor regarding a three-way trade that would send QB Tony Romo to Redskins
The Tony Romo scenarios continue.
An NFL Network report Friday said that Dallas, Washington and San Francisco are flirting with the idea of a three-team blockbuster trade that could see two quarterbacks dealt.
The report by Ian Rapoport said the crux of the deal would be Washington sending quarterback Kirk Cousins to the 49ers, the Cowboys sending Tony Romo to the Redskins and the 49ers sending draft pick compensation, including the No. 2 pick overall, to the Cowboys.
The Cowboys have the 28th overall pick in next month’s draft.
Since the season ended, Romo has been linked to the Houston Texans and Denver Broncos. His name will continue to bounce off quarterback-hungry teams until the Cowboys make a final decision.
This isn’t the first time talk of Romo to the Redskins has been heard this off-season, but it’s the most intriguing.
The idea of sending Romo to a division rival might turn Cowboys fans’ stomachs, but if it brought Dallas the No. 2 overall pick, and possibly Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett, most would learn to live with it.
The Cowboys’ staff is in Indianapolis along with every other team for the NFL Combine. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is expected to join the crew in Indianapolis on Saturday.
