The Cowboys are content to be patient with Tony Romo. Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Cowboys continue to hold out hope that some team will become excited enough by the thought of having Tony Romo as their starting quarterback to offer a trade, but there remains almost no chance of that happening.

Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram provided a Romo update on Monday morning, and the reporter says the Cowboys are still trying to trade Romo to no avail.

Neither the Denver Broncos nor the Houston Texans — the two teams most likely to sign Romo — have expressed interest in trading for the veteran quarterback. The Cowboys essentially have no leverage, as opposing teams know Romo has no interest in staying in Dallas as a backup to Dak Prescott. Rather than give up a draft pick, teams like the Texans and Broncos can simply wait it out.

There’s also a slight possibility that Romo could be contemplating retirement, and one report claims he would already have another career lined up if he decided to go that route. Whatever the case, the Cowboys don’t appear to be in any rush.
