Romo has permission to be in contact with general managers league-wide to schedule a workout, visit or physical with interested parties, NFL.com reports.

Romo's clearance to pursue interested teams is the latest development in him parting ways with the Cowboys this offseason. However, whereas Romo was at one point expected to be released, it appears Dallas is exploring avenues to instead increase its likelihood of being able to trade him. Given the 36-year-old's history of back problems, prospective suitors will understandably want to have their respective medical staffs check the quarterback's condition before making any move for him, so in granting teams and Romo permission to communicate and gather together, Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones seems to be offering a test-drive opportunity to his peers. At the moment, it's unclear how soon to expect movement on Romo's situation, but this latest layer at least figures to expedite the process.
