What are the chances Tony Romo ends his retirement to play for the Packers?
While it seems unlikely, if not impossible, that Green Bay — a team that rarely dips into the free-agent pool — write a fat check to Romo, his interest in a return might be enough for them to consider it.
Romo grew up in Burlington, Wis., a small town 150 miles south of Green Bay, before playing at Eastern Illinois and 14 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys. His final season was lost due to back injury that ultimately led to his retirement, though it's unclear if he could have played another season elsewhere.
Now a CBS Sports analyst, he made a comment last week that suggest he'd be interested in a return. During the Eagles-Panthers game on Thursday Night Football, they showed a replay his final pass in Dallas.
"Was it the last pass?" Romo said.
Romo is a witty guy who seems like someone that would innocently troll fans for his enjoyment. However, was there any bit of seriousness there?
The Packers might find out this week if they believe Brett Hundley is not a serviceable replacement to Aaron Rodgers, who may be lost for the season with a broken collarbone.
