The team has plenty to spend in free agency.

The Dallas Cowboys will release the veteran quarterback when the new National Football League year officially opens on Thursday, according to multiple reports.

You can immediately take the Chiefs off the table, as multiple reports say that they're committed to Alex Smith at quarterback and are not interested in entering into a conversation with Romo.

No other details have been released about the possible upcoming release and it is not clear how the Cowboys will handle the remaining money they owe Romo, but they do have a couple options.

The impetus of making the release now is a tip of the cap to Romo for his contribution to the Cowboys over the last decade plus.

Even though the odds favor Romo to land in Denver, it will be interesting to see how things play out over the course of the offseason.

After playing his only game last season at Lincoln Financial Field on January 1, 2017 in Philadelphia, Tony Romo could play for the Denver Broncos or Houston Texans next year. But last season, McClain was at times the Cowboys best defensive lineman, posting a career-high 40 total tackles and 2.5 sacks in 15 starts. However, that is not the cast.

Each season, teams are allowed to designate two players as what are known as June 1st cap casualties. has Cutler's odds of signing with the Texans at 3/1. The only problem is, Kaepernick is drawing little interest from the other teams. They have created a defense that ranks with some of the best in the history of the NFL.

Cleveland did not place the franchise tag on Pryor, which would have paid him $15.826 million for the 2017 season.

My Take: Many fans in Denver seem to be quite upset at the potential of signing Romo.

Siemian saw most of the time under center and threw for 3,401 yards with 18 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in Denver's run-first offense. ESPN reported Thursday that New England had agreed to trade a fourth-round draft pick to the Indianapolis Colts for Allen and a sixth-round pick. He didn't play his first three years, then burst onto the scene in 2006. "D.J. was the ultimate teammate who gave every ounce of effort he had to help our team".
