Since being cut a year ago, things have turned out well for Tony Romo
A year ago Wednesday, the Dallas Cowboys cut Tony Romo.

Romo has had a pretty good 365 days since despite losing his job.

Not long after the Cowboys released Romo, he joined CBS to replace Phil Simms as its lead NFL analyst alongside Jim Nantz. It was viewed as a gutsy move because Romo had no television experience and would call Thursday night and Sunday games.

Last week, Romo was nominated for an Emmy as the outstanding sports personality/analyst.

The Cowboys’ decision to release Romo was not a surprise. Given his salary-cap cost and Dak Prescott’s record-setting rookie season, there was no way Romo could return to the team in 2017. Had the Cowboys cut Romo in March 2017, however, maybe he would not have gone straight to the television booth.

Had the move come in March, Romo could have kept playing. The most likely of destinations was Houston. But the Cowboys kept waiting to make a move and CBS kept making an impression on Romo, who made the decision to move to a job in which he could grow old.

He's been actually more than decent in his new role. Good for him.
