The Tony Romo saga continues to draw headlines and doesn’t appear any closer to coming to an end which isn’t ideal for a team like the Houston Texans.
When the Houston Texans decided to trade away Brock Osweiler they created even more uncertainty at the quarterback position. At this point, they have Tom Savage and Brandon Weeden as the only quarterbacks on the roster.
Savage has natural talent but has only appeared in 5 games attempting a total of 92 passes in his career. He’s a major unknown which isn’t ideal for a team looking to make a Super Bowl run.

There’s no other way to look at this situation– the Houston Texans have the talent to be a legitimate Super Bowl contender. This is one of the main reasons why they have been linked to Tony Romo.
Houston has made the playoffs the past two years with absolutely awful quarterback play. It’s not a stretch to see them take a step forward with a healthy Romo.
The focus is on Romo because there just isn’t another quarterback option that makes sense. Houston isn’t going see an immediate benefit from drafting a quarterback. Signing someone like Jay Cutler or Colin Kaepernick also doesn’t inspire much hope.
Romo is the one available quarterback who is capable of playing at an extremely high level. The issue is his availability which includes his injury history, the fact he’s still on the Cowboys roster and appears to be considering a broadcasting career.
NFL teams typically have a very short window to win with a certain roster. Houston’s window is now, but they’re still a quarterback short.The Texans have an elite defense capable of routinely producing dominant performances. They have explosive playmakers on offense and a solid offensive line.
It truly is a situation where missing out on Romo would seem like a complete failure.
