Report: Broncos Would Have Only Wanted Tony Romo Under Right Conditions

As much confidence as general manager John Elway and new coach Vance Joseph have professed in young quarterbacks Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch, the Broncos would have been interested in a veteran of now retired Tony Romo’s stature under the right conditions, Chris Wesseling of NFL.com reports.

It was no secret that one of the those conditions was that the Cowboys release Romo rather than holding out for a trade.

If Elway was going to graduate from piqued interest to sold on the idea, though, he needed to know that Romo was harboring a single-minded obsession with winning a Super Bowl before retirement.

“One of the conditions was that Romo was all-in on the pursuit of a Super Bowl to kind of cap his career,” Mike Klis of KUSA-TV in Denver told NFL Network’s Will Selva on Tuesday.

Elway wanted assurances that other considerations such as money, geography, health and television opportunities were secondary to embracing the chance to win in Denver.

“I think Elway wasn’t sure how committed Tony Romo was to that all-consuming quest that he wanted from his quarterback,” Klis added. “I think that had a big part of why Elway backed off of Tony Romo a few weeks ago.”
