Will the Cowboys ever release Tony Romo? There’s probably some good reason that Jerry Jones is hanging onto his favorite son , but it’s getting a bit awkward that Romo hasn’t hit free agency.

There’s no real deadline for the Cowboys (they will likely designate him a post-June 1 cut anyway), but there are just a few options here. Retirement is technically on the table too.

But according to Cowboys Hall of Fame wideout Michael Irvin, appearing on CBS Sports Radio’s “Tiki and Tierney”, there is zero chance Romo’s retiring.

“Tony’s not retiring. Tony’s not retiring. Tony loves to play. Tony is a competitor like you’ve never seen,” Irvin said. “I know his body looks like maybe he’s not. I’ve seen it. I’ve seen it in the shower. But this dude can play any sport, and he plays it great. He put it on me in basketball. I don’t even try to mess with him in golf. This dude can play any sport and play it great. I want that. I want that on my team. He’s not retiring, I can tell you that.”

Real quickly, what was that line about the shower? Irvin just casually lobbed it in there “trust me his body looks great.” Totally cool, but it’s a little weird that The Playmaker is just hanging out in the shower with Romo lately.
