Lucky for fans, Romo addressed them directly via Instagram as Bob Dillion played in the background.
"Hey everyone, I just wanted to come tell you it's been a insane 48 hours here", Romo begins.
The veteran QB's top suitors are believed to be the Denver Broncos, Houston Texans and San Francisco 49ers. He had an incredible career for the Dallas Cowboys however, as despite all of the wonderful QBs they have had, Romo happens to own the the franchise's passing yards and touchdown records. The two have always been close, and Jones didn't want to ship Romo to the Browns or some other team where he'd have no chance to win.
Romo was also scheduled to carry a $24.7 million salary cap hit in 2017. But he hasn't played a full season since 2012, including missing 21 games with injuries the past two seasons. The Denver Broncos and Houston Texans have been mentioned as potential landing spots.More news: Watch The Bachelor season 21, Week 9 part 2 online
Romo's release hardly comes as a surprise.
Romo's release was a near foregone conclusion after rookie Dak Prescott stepped in after Romo was injured in the preseason and led the Cowboys to a 13-3 record.
During his time with the Cowboys, he was also remarkably consistent, posting a quarterback rating for nine-straight seasons between 2006 and 2014.
The offseason presents numerous possibilities to Romo if he aims to continue his professional career as a starter in the NFL. He was 2-4 in the postseason, winless on the road and never got the Cowboys to the NFC championship game.
Absolute chaos has been swirling around quarterback Tony Romo in what appears to be his final days as a Dallas Cowboy.
