Sources tell ESPN the Dallas Cowboys will release Tony Romo on Thursday, according to the network.
ESPN's Todd Archer reported Wednesday that the team will release Romo on the first day of the league year.
"Romo will leave the Cowboys as the franchise leader in passing yards and touchdowns after a 14-year run with the team, including 10 years as the starter," Archer said.
With the news finally out, the Cowboys will have to decided how to designate Romo. A June 1 designation, would save the Cowboys $14 million against the cap this year, but Romo would still count for roughly $19 million toward the cap in the next two years.
ESPN lists Denver and Houston among the teams interested in Romo. At last week's NFL Combine, multiple sources reported that Denver's General Manager John Elway alluded to waiting on Romo to be released in order to talk to him.
