DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says former quarterback Tony Romo would have never played for another NFL franchise after they made the decision to move forward with Dak Prescott as their starter.

During his weekly interview with Shan and RJ on 105.3 The Fan, Jones was asked if he ever tried to convince Romo to continue playing elsewhere. 

"It wasn't going to be anywhere else," said Jones, adding. "he was unique then, he’s unique now."

After the 2016 season, there were several teams with quarterback needs that were rumored to have an interest in Romo. Among them were the Kansas City Chiefs, Denver Broncos and the Houston Texans. Romo, however, decided to hang up his cleats and took a job in the broadcast booth with CBS Sports. 

It was assumed at the time that Romo walked away from the game due to the numerous injuries he sustained over the course of his career, but during a recent interview with the Ben and Skin Show on The Fan, Romo was asked if he was healthy enough to play in the NFL today?

"I probably played much more hurt back in '13 or '14 then I would be now. ... Yeah, I'm healthy enough," Romo said. "That wouldn't be an issue at all. That would be the least of my thoughts when it came to a decision like that."

Jones also confirmed Tuesday that Romo would be in the Cowboy Ring of Honor
