The Dallas Cowboys now expect to trade quarterback Tony Romo to either the Denver Broncos or Houston Texans, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports, citing a source.

As a result, the Broncos are in talks with the New York Jets about a deal involving their 2016 starter Trevor Siemian, Mortensen adds.

It was reported Wednesday that the Cowboys would release Romo, presumably after failing to find a trade partner or come to a compromise on the veteran’s contract. The Cowboys are keeping their phone lines open, however.

The Broncos have been a long-rumored destination for Romo. They previously brought in a veteran free-agent quarterback – Peyton Manning in 2012 – and opened a four-year championship window. With a top-five defense in tow, Denver could opt to make a similar move this offseason.

The Texans traded their quarterback, Brock Osweiler, to the Cleveland Browns on Thursday after he disappointed in his first go-round as an unquestioned starter.

Finally, the Jets are in the market for a new quarterback after cutting ties with two-year starter Ryan Fitzpatrick.
