If ever there was irony in the NFL today, it comes in the form of former Dallas Cowboys starting quarterback Drew Bledsoe feeling sorry for anything happening to Tony Romo.

Yet, as Romo is looking at the end of his days as the starter for the Cowboys, Bledsoe is expressing sympathy for what the man who did the same thing to him as Dax Prescott is doing to Romo now.

With Prescott clearly taking control of the starting quarterback gig in Dallas, Romo took to the podium earlier this week and issued a heartfelt statement on the state of his role with the team going forward.

That statement made it very clear that Romo was accepting Prescott as the new starting quarterback and that his future may be elsewhere in the NFL beyond this year.

According to an interview with ESPN’s Ed Werder, Bledsoe expressed understanding for the difficult reality that Romo is likely facing.

But, the difference in Bledsoe’s situation and Romo’s is that one has to wonder if this is Romo’s final stop in the NFL. In the case of Bledsoe, Dallas was his final destination after getting pushed out by some guy named Tom Brady in New England.

For Romo, there are likely teams who could use a veteran quarterback with some gas still left in the tank. Possible destinations like the Chicago Bears and New York Jets have been thought of in NFL circles.
