The Dallas Cowboys plan to release veteran quarterback Tony Romo, according to several credible sources.
Despite the hopes of many Texans fans, he's reportedly getting out of the League and putting his nearly 14 years of football experience to use as a sports broadcaster.

"Just knowing what I wanted to do for the next 15, 20, 30 years, I just felt as though it was the right decision at this time," Romo said on a conference. "I'm really excited about the new challenge ahead."
The Cowboys were planning to release Romo Tuesday, marking him as a post-June 1 resignation, according to sources.
