Packers to contact Tony Romo?


by

With Aaron Rodgers out for the rest of the season because of a broken collarbone injury suffered on Sunday's 23-10 loss against the Vikings, could the Packers contact Tony Romo?
 
Not long after Rodgers went down, speculation began about Green Bay potentially contacting Romo to see if he would like to come out of retirement and play for them.
 
ESPN's Adam Schefter went as far as tweeting the following:
 
"Just wondering: what if the Packers called Wisconsin's own Tony Romo...?"
 
The 37-year-old Romo grew up in Wisconsin, he was a Packers fan as a kid and he's the best quarterback not currently signed to any NFL team.
 
Romo lost his job as the Cowboys starting quarterback last year after suffering a back injury in the preseason before Dak Prescott's emergence. Romo decided to become a broadcaster this year, becoming the lead analayst for CBS.
 
Romo's broadcasting career has been successful, so it will be interesting to see if he would give that up to return to the NFL and play for a playoff contender. For now the Packers will turn to Rodgers' backup Brett Hundlet under center when they host the Saints next Sunday. Keep it locked with ABC Islands Sportsbook the lines for NFL Week 7 will be released soon.
