    Tony Romo expects to be released, not traded, by the Dallas Cowboys, according to a report.

    ESPN's Ed Werder tweeted Thursday that sources told him the 36-year-old Romo also thinks he can start for two to three more years in the NFL.

    Releasing Romo would cost the Cowboys more than $10 million against the 2017 salary cap.

    Werder added that the team will try to trade their former starting quarterback, but will likely have a hard time finding a taker for Romo's $24 million 2017 salary.
