It appears the Dallas Cowboys are preparing for life after Tony Romo.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Cowboys will host quarterback Josh McCown on a free-agent visit Wednesday. This visit could be a sign that the Cowboys are ready to move on from veteran signal-caller Tony Romo, or the team could be covering all bases. 

Dak Prescott is the unquestioned starter, but if the team does move on from Romo, they will need a new backup quarterback.

McCown will not challenge Prescott for the starting position, but does offer some competency and experience in a backup role. McCown made 11 starts and appeared in a total of 13 games with the Cleveland Browns over the span of two seasons. The 37-year old completed 60.4 percent of passes attempts for 3,209 yards, 18 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions.

As for Romo, keeping him in Dallas would result in a $24-million hit against the cap. It's likely the Cowboys will either trade or release the oft-injured passer.
