DALLAS, TX —
Recently out Cowboys QB Tony Romo has just been traded to Texas rival Houston Texans for the #1 overall pick in this years NFL Draft. Romo who just recently came out to the public that he was gay with Cowboys teammate Jason Witten signed a major extension but now Romo is headed to a new part of Texas and to a completely new conference and division.
Houston who is QB needy felt that Romo could be a better option for them now than a rookie or any man on their roster could be now and for the short future that Romo may still have in the NFL. Its unknown what the idea behind this is but Jerry Jones did hint that he liked a QB with his newly acquired #1 Overall pick. We got to meet with Jones and get his reasoning behind this all:
“There is multiple reasons for this move today. Season after season we find ourselves losing games due to a collapse or a last game interception. Now with all the news about Tony and Jason I needed to do whats best for the whole team and remove those 2 men from being together in our locker room and ruining the chemistry we have here. I cannot allow myself to believe this is okay between these men so I had to make this move.
I had to put my team in the best place and this is only going to help us. We lose a great QB but there is a guy in this draft who we really like for the team but that is not a promise. Dallas Cowboys will be making moves next season and this is one is a very big one that will improve this team.”
Houston GM Rick Smith also gave us a comment about his acquisition of his new QB: “I feel that this is a great move for us. We invest in an elite QB right away who gives us a chance to win games right away. This trade helps us and also saves us from having to develop a rookie QB and the chances of a bust would be a waste of a pick. He got an elite QB for that same price.”
There has been a minority of people who feel this trade is a positive move for Dallas. Houston will cover all of Romo’s cost so Dallas will not take a cap penalty. The GLBT and its supports have also been on Twitter and Facebook complaining and giving their opinions of the homophobic comments from Jones. How will this make Dallas look now after their owner bashed the entire gay community and made is obvious they are not welcome on his football team.
