Tony Romo has decided it was time to hang up his cleats and retire from the NFL.

Romo has decided he has a better option on the table than returning to the NFL as a player this fall. Romo is set to join CBS and become a commentator along side Jim Nantz.

CBS is looking to shake up their broadcasting by removing longtime commentator Phil Simms from the number one broadcast pairing on the network. This is a big risk going forward as it is no easy task to switch over to, let alone starting off at the top.

Romo has a career record of 78-49 as an NFL quarterback, throwing for 34,183 yards in his 15 seasons with 248 touchdowns to 117 interceptions.
