NFL Trade Rumors are suggesting that the Denver Broncos may make a bid for Tony Romo. The team is losing its hold on the Super Bowl Champions tag with back to back losses. A short term move to land Tony Romo seems to be on the cards.
The team has failed to score in excess of 16 points in a single game over the last two weeks. Youthful quarterbacks Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian are compounding the problem. They have posted over 220 yards passing only twice this year in a game. Rival defenses have been able to focus on combating the Broncos’ ground attacks as a result. The team has been unable to post 100 yards rushing in a single game from the 18th of September onwards.
The back to back defeats have landed the team in a major crisis. The Denver Broncos are now playing with a worn out defense line. The team does not look dominant even though they won the championship in February. In light of the situation, John Gruden, Monday Night Football analyst, suggested a deal for a veteran quarterback to improve the situation.
Why Tony Romo Assumes Importance
In this column for ESPN Insider, Gruden stated that Lynch and Siemian represented the future for the Denver Broncos. However, he added that the championship window for this defense will not stay this wide open forever. He suggested that if the Broncos’ offense continues to sputter, a short term move for Tony Romo…before the Nov. 1 trading deadline should be a consideration at least. This has sparked countless NFL Trade Rumors of a possible deal.
This does make for an intriguing move although Romo is coming off a surgery and is 36 years old. The Dallas Cowboys will not be able to justify a high price for him as per NFL Trade Rumors, NFL Mocks noted.
If Romo himself is 100% fit, he may be the solution to the Broncos’ problems as an effective quarterback. Speculation is rife about whether the two teams will entertain the idea and whether Romo will sign up with the Broncos if approached.
