During the Week 3 of the 2017 NFL Preseason, former Dallas Cowboys star quarterback Tony Romo will make his broadcasting debut during the Seattle Seahawks-Kansas City Chiefs game.
The very first football game broadcast on CBS Sports this 2017 NFL season will be yet another opportunity for the Kansas City Chiefs to show the entire nation what kind of talent they possess on both sides of the roster. THe Seahawks-Chiefs game is scheduled to be televised on August 25, the third game of the Week 3 preseason and first on CBS channel will feature the Kansas taking on the Seattle in what will also be the broadcasting debut of former Dallas Cowboys superstar quarterback Tony Romo.
Romo will be announcing the contest alongside Jim Nantz and Tracy Wolfson. Romo officially retired from his pro-NFL career and forged a lucrative contract deal with CBS to join their sports broadcasting group after dabbling with the idea of playing for a new franchise this season.
In fact, the Kansas City Chiefs were one of a few organizations linked with Tony Romo in the offseason, along with the Denver Broncos and Houston Texans as well as the Arizona Cardinals. Rumors suggests that Romo was willing to play for the KC Chiefs should there was a space for him, but the team never once flickered from their public support of Alex Smith and there wasn’t a single club willing to shell out whatever the Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was asking in exchange for his back-up.
It will be intriguing to see how natural Tony Romo sounds providing commentary, although the former quarterback should definitely have a slew of insight to add after his 13 years professional career in the NFL. The four-time Pro Bowler retired with a career record of 78-49 and now stands as the all-time passing leader of the Dallas Cowboys.
