Garrett hasn't talked to Romo in weeks; Broncos open to adding a veteran QB

Indianapolis -- Most around the NFL are convinced it's just a matter of time before quarterback Tony Romo's tenure with the Cowboys is over, and he goes about the business of finding his new NFL home.

Nothing Cowboys head coach Jason said during a media session at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis would change that notion.

Garrett says he hasn't talked to Romo in recent weeks, and the last time was right after the season.

Cowboys President Stephen Jones said Tuesday that he expects the team to meet "soon" with Romo regarding his future.

"We'll take his situation as it comes over the next few weeks," said Garrett.  "What {Tony's} done for us both on and off the field, he's been outstanding, and we'll see how his situation plays out over the next few weeks."

As for Romo having played the last time for the Cowboys, Garrett said,  "Hard to know that.  He'll have some conversations with Jerry Jones and they'll work through what that specific situation is in regards to what we think is the best for the Dallas Cowboys, and what's best for Tony Romo,"

Even with his recent injury history, a number of teams will be interested in Romo's services. The Texans and Broncos have emerged as the apparent front-runners.

Denver GM John Elways was asked about the possibility of adding a veteran quarterback to the roster, and he said they're "open to anything."

Broncos head coach Vance Joseph said, "Having a veteran quarterback who has won games in the past, it brings excitement to your locker room and your city."

We know Romo can bring said excitement, and in the coming weeks, we'll find out if Denver is the destination.
