The TJ McAloon Show - Tony Romo's Retirement

"It has been one of the great privileges of my life to work with Tony Romo, one of the greatest players in Dallas Cowboys history". He had many battles against many great quarterbacks.

"I had to work harder to beat him ... he's made me a better player", Romo said, via Patrik Walker of 247Sports.

"It really had nothing to do with the Texans and everything to do with CBS", Romo said, according to ESPN. Several front office executives literally laughed at the notion that Romo is retired, all but guaranteeing that he would be back. Schefter also speculated that despite Romo's decision to walk away from the game, other teams will continue to keep him on their radar in the hope that they can woo him with big money. "It reminds me really of my rookie year". However, the 36-year-old has all but confirmed that he is replacing Phil Simms as part of CBS's top National Football League broadcast team alongside Jim Nantz.

Last season, Jernigan had 31 tackles, a career-high five sacks and three passes defensed in 16 games, 15 of which he started.

Romo was realistic during his introductory conference call when he said that it's only natural that for a while he would want the Cowboys to succeed. If something like that does happen, you gotta expect the Cowboys to get Romo back with a year of rest.

On Tuesday, Tony Romo officially quit his career and have chosen retirement.

"I don't envision coming out, but I've also seen enough things from "I'm not going to Alabama" to 'I'm not returning to football, '" Romo said alluding to Saban and Brett Favre. I'm sure I will (get a call). I have always known that once my playing career was over I wanted to become a broadcaster.

Regarding the Cowboys organization with which he played his entire career, Romo doesn't seem to have any hard feelings towards the ownership. "I'm going from being the old guy to being the young guy".

"I'm just trying to make the best decision possible for me and my family", Romo added when asked about the Houston Texans.
