Adam Schefter and Todd Archer of ESPN are reporting that the Dallas Cowboys will release quarterback Tony Romo, and that Romo will go into broadcasting for the 2017 season.

The former starting QB is the team's all-time leader in passing yardage, but was replaced by rookie Dak Prescott last season.  Romo has battled injuries throughout his career.

Romo has three years left on his current contract with the Cowboys, but he is expected to be designated as a post-June 1st cut.  That would lessen the salary cap blow the team would take over the next several years.
