  • Tony Romo's contract makes Dallas Cowboys trade difficult

The Dallas Cowboys still want a trade partner for veteran Tony Romo, but thus far are not finding any teams willing to take on the 36-year-old quarterback's contract.

The Cowboys 2007 fourth-round pick out of Northern Illinois informed Dallas' front office of his plans to retire prior to the start of free agency on Thursday, according to ESPN's Todd Archer.

Romo has met twice with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones this offseason, including earlier this week when the quarterback's release looked imminent.

Dallas Cowboys veteran right tackle Doug Free is planning to retire from the National Football League after 10 seasons and has already informed the team of his decision, according to multiple reports.

He also hopes to attract national business leaders, experts on substantive topics, and constitutional scholars. Biden graduated from UD in 1965 with a double major in history and political science.

Multiple sources told Schefter on Friday that Fox Sports also is interested in Romo - as a television analyst to replace John Lynch, who left in January to become the 49ers' general manager. While Romo was doing that, a father and his daughter were doing what they could to bring Tony to Houston. Romo continues to want to display his talents and play a few more seasons, with a chance at being a starter for a Super Bowl contender.

With injuries plaguing Romo over the last few seasons, some teams may ponder just how much they are willing to give up in exchange for him, resulting in a quiet few days even as the rumors swirl about his future.

Collins also played offensive tackle at LSU, and the Cowboys do have an option with second-year offensive tackle Chaz Green.
