Tony Romo's NFFC to try again, this time in Dallas July 2017

Don’t judge things too quickly

Dallas re-signed quarterback Kellen Moore to serve as a backup and provide depth for quarterback Dak Prescott.

Moore likely would have been the Cowboys starter in the season opener last season had he not suffered a broken leg during training camp.

Even though Moore is officially back in the fold in Dallas, there is still one huge question at the quarterback position: What will the Cowboys do with Tony Romo?

The Cowboys have also investigated other quarterbacks, including Josh McCown. Moore, Romo and Prescott are now on the Cowboys' roster, though Romo is expected to be traded or released. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said earlier this month that there is no need to add another veteran quarterback if Moore is in the fold. When this occurs, Cowboys fans are expected to temporarily cheer for Romo and his new team.

"Romo is signed through 2019, but with Prescott entrenched as the starter, the 36-year-old's future in Dallas has been a topic of outside speculation throughout the offseason".

Approximately two weeks into the NFL's free-agency period, Moore agreed to return to the Cowboys for a third season, the organization announced on Monday.

According to NFL.com's Dan Hanzus, Romo pocketed an extra $64.11 by going 3-of-4 with 29 passing yards and a touchdown in the Week 17 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, which bore no playoff implications for the Dallas Cowboys.

With only two quarterbacks on the roster besides Romo, the club will continue to look for at least one more capable veteran.
