Tony Romo signed with the Dallas Cowboys nearly 14 years ago, but it appears that his days with the team are numbered. Dak Prescott is the team’s quarterback of the future after leading them to a 13-3 record as a rookie, making it more than likely that Romo will be traded or released this offseason.

Romo has three years left on his current contract, and even despite his recent injury history, teams will be lining up to acquire the quarterback. He’s made the Pro Bowl four times since 2006, and only three quarterbacks have a better career passer rating.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that trading Romo is Dallas’ No. 1 offseason priority, though it’s unknown how much value the team can get in return for a player that’s clearly on his way out.

Let’s take a look at where Romo might be next season, including the betting odds, provided by

Houston Texans (3/1)

The Texans seem to make the most sense as Romo’s home in 2017. Houston had the NFL’s No. 1 ranked defense without J.J. Watt for most of the season, and they would be a legitimate Super Bowl contender with a top quarterback. Brock Osweiler’s $16 million salary is guaranteed for next year, but he was so bad in his first year as a starter that the Texans will likely be looking to move on from him.

Denver Broncos (19/4)

Denver is reportedly Romo’s preferred destination. Just one year removed from winning the Super Bowl, the Broncos still have an elite defense with a strong wide receiving corps. The only issue is that John Elway, the team’s executive vice president of football operations, appears comfortable with Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch being the Broncos’ quarterbacks going forward.

Buffalo Bills (5/1)

The Bills ranked No. 10 in points scored with Tyrod Taylor at the helm, and pairing Romo with running back LeSean McCoy could give Buffalo one of the league’s best offenses. An underachieving defense could bounce back in 2017, making the Bills a somewhat attractive option for Romo. Taylor’s impending free agency likely gives Buffalo interest in Romo, though the quarterback would probably choose a team that’s closer to winning a title if given the choice.

Chicago Bears & New York Jets (15/2)

Neither team is close to winning a championship, considering they combined for just eight wins in the 2016 season. With high draft picks, the Bears and Jets are both candidates to select a quarterback in the first round, and they might not be willing to give up much to land a veteran. Still, Romo would be a major upgrade over what either team has on their roster or a promising rookie quarterback.

Dallas Cowboys, Jacksonville Jaguars & San Francisco 49ers (10/1)

The three teams have the exact same odds, though they are in completely different situations. With Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert getting the starts under center for the 49ers this season, San Francisco is almost certain to have a new No. 1 quarterback in 2017. The Jaguars thought they had their quarterback of the future in Blake Bortles, but a poor 2016 campaign could force the team to make a change and replace the third-year player. It only makes sense that the Cowboys will let Romo start elsewhere, but it’s at least possible that Dallas will keep him to back up Prescott.

Kansas City Chiefs & Miami Dolphins (12/1)

Miami and Kansas City both made the playoffs with capable quarterbacks, though neither Alex Smith nor Ryan Tannehill can win a championship without a lot of help around them. Still, neither team seems eager to move on from their current starter after a successful season.

Cleveland Browns (18/1)

The Browns were lucky to win a single game in 2016, and acquiring a 36-year-old quarterback won’t do them much good next season.
