J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS!

That could have become Tony Romo's motto after the free agent quarterback flirted with the team this offseason

"That's what the former Cowboys quarterback said Wednesday at a network talent availability, less than two weeks ahead of his national television debut. When asked specifically if he considered joining the quarterback-needy Jets, Romo said: "I took a look at them, I'm not going to say if they were in the final four, but I did take a look."

"I went through a lot of teams," Romo said. "There was a lot of discussion about, you know -- I narrowed the focus to about four teams and from there, obviously I made the decision to come to CBS and I felt the opportunity was just too big to pass up getting to work with a Jim Nantz, CBS and this thing. It was too set up perfectly."

His connection with the Jets would have been interesting, and could have easily altered the franchise's immediate fortunes. In an all-out youth movement this winter and spring, the Jets parted ways with a handful of high-profile veterans including Brandon MarshallEric Decker, Nick Mangold and Darrelle Revis. As NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported earlier this week, they are also looking to shop running back Matt Forte's contract before the season begins."
