It is being reported by ESPN and multiple other sources that former Cowboys starting QB Tony Romo will retire from football and take a TV broadcasting job.

Sources told ESPN said that the 37 year old Romo made the decision because of worry over his health. ESPN says, "Romo believes his family and his health are paramount at this time in his life. He was limited to playing in just parts of five games over the last two seasons because of collarbone and back injuries, and he suffered a compression fracture in his back last August that led to him ultimately giving way to Dak Prescott."

The Cowboys were reportedly set to release Romo anyway, but Romo allegedly told Jerry Jones of his decision.
