An injured quarterback is on the sidelines watching a rookie take his job, and is hoping that a Hall of Fame QB turned team president will to give him one more shot.
Tony Romo, like Peyton Manning before him, sees the Denver Broncos as his ideal landing spot this offseason, the NFL Network reported on Sunday.
Romo is active this weekend as the backup to rookie quarterback Dak Prescott, who has been under center for Dallas’ 8-1 start. Last week he read a statement saying that Prescott had earned the right to play and is accepting his role as the No. 2 QB for America’s Team.
When Peyton Manning joined John Elways Broncos in 2012 Denver immediately became a Super Bowl contender.

According to the NFL Network, the 36-year-old Romo thinks John Elway’s Broncos are the team where he could fit in. ESPN reported Sunday that Dallas could receive a mid-round draft pick for Romo should the Cowboys decide to trade him.
Romo, unlike Manning, who was released by the Colts, will essentially be able to pick his team in a trade, the NFL Network reports, because his contract will have to be renegotiated to facilitate a trade.
