If the Redskins see Tony Romo this year it will be in a network pre-production meeting and not in a helmet on the football field.
CBS announced Tuesday that Romo will join Jim Nantz and Tracy Wolfson on the lead announce team for the network’s coverage of the "NFL on CBS" on Sunday afternoons and Thursday Night Football.
Romo also had drawn interest from NBC, FOX and ESPN.
Romo himself confirmed on Twitter that he will join the CBS booth.

The Cowboys also announced Tuesday that they had officially released Romo, The team had spent much of the offseason trying to figure out how to get something of value for him in a trade, but they have found no takers.
The Broncos and Texans had been considered the most likely destinations for Romo if he had chosen to continue playing in the NFL.
Romo, who will turn 37 later this month, missed all but one series of last year with a back injury he suffered in a preseason game. Rookie Dak Prescott led the Cowboys to the best record in the NFC and it became apparent that he was not only the QB of the future but the man for the present as well.
In 20 games that Romo started against the Redskins the Cowboys went 11-9. He completed 61.9 percent of his passes for 3,007 yards with 27 touchdowns and 16 interception. He had some memorable moments against the Redskins perhaps topped by his late-game interception that let Washington clinch in the NFC East title in Week 17 of the 2012 season.
