I was listening to Sirius yesterday and I can't remember who was on the show but they were saying that the Cowboys are infatuated with Manziel and think he is a younger version of Romo but with more fire and competitiveness. They really want the kid for a variety of reasons but unsure as to whether and how long he would sit behind Romo. They added that Romo's contract, even restructured, is precluding the Cowboys from adding players they need to get to the playoffs as they are in cap hell- bringing up questions about Romo being possible trade bait.

If the Cowboys put Romo on the block for the Bills to trade this year's #1 (so they can take Manziel) and next year's #1, would you as a Bills fan take that?

Yes...Romo with a good defense = something relevant.

yes I would trade two 1st round picks for a franchise QB (Top 10)

I consider Romo a Top 15.

Romo is damaged goods with a bad back.

Romo has a $27 mil cap hit in 2015.

i would NOT trade two #1's for Tony Romo.

I wouldn't trade two first round picks in the WNBA draft for Tony Romo.

I really like EJ. A lot. But I think if you put Romo in at QB, this team is on a whole different level. I know about his picks at the end, but he is always in a shootout because he has had terrible defneses. I think Romo is really good QB. Now he is in his 30s.... so you know you don't have him long... but you keep EJ behind him. So I don't know....

Yes, that is an issue with the back.

Nope.  The only guys in the entire league that I would trade two first round picks for are Aaron Rodgers and Andrew Luck.

is this a serious question?

at this point trading Romo would most likely be worse for the Cowboys cap then keeping him

Yes they were debating it on the radio. I guess there was only so much mock draft talk they could take.

Not anymore, dude is 34 years old and health issues have started.

Five years ago that's a steal.  Guy has been a top 10 QB pretty much his whole career.

He's 34 and has been beat up the past couple years, though he is tough.  He is still a top 15 QB, but not worth 2, or even 1, 1st round pick.  If Dallas is desperate to get rid of him, that price tag would be much lower...

Isn't Romo like 35 years old? How many good years does he even have left? I'm never doing this.

So I think they will find a way to take Manzeil anyway... even if they can't move Romo. I thought he was younger than 34 (like 31 or so) the way they were talking.  Jerry won't be able to live without Manzeil.
