With the Dallas Cowboys considering trade options for Tony Romo, the Los Angeles Rams can officially be ruled out for acquiring the veteran quarterback.
The Los Angeles Rams have high expectations for Jared Goff heading into his sophomore season now that he’s got a little bit of experience under his belt, but there’s a good chance the team will bring another quarterback on board to help develop the former California star. No matter what the team ends up doing at quarterback over the next few months, at least Tony Romo can officially be ruled out as a potential option for the Rams during the 2017 season.
Of course, the chances of Los Angeles acquiring Romo this offseason seemed like a long shot to begin with, but it looks like the team just wanted to make it clear they had zero interest in the Dallas Cowboys quarterback. Romo has been quite the popular topic of discussion over the last few months since the Cowboys replaced him with Dak Prescott as the starter during the 2016 season, and will most likely trade the quarterback at some point in the offseason.
Whatever team Romo does end up playing for, at least the Rams aren’t even considering the possibility, and delay the development of Goff.
At this point in his career, Romo has made it clear he would not only like to be a starter, but play for a team with a good chance of competing for a Super Bowl. With all due respect to Los Angeles, Romo would certainly be an upgrade at quarterback from an experience perspective, but Sean McVay‘s squad seems to be at least a year or two away from being serious contenders in the NFC.
There’s no question Goff would learn a ton from playing with a quarterback like Romo, but give the Rams credit for avoiding any sort of trade, and doing what’s best by working with their hopeful franchise quarterback.
