Sports Business Journal connected Romo to CBS as a replacement for the network's top National Football League broadcast analyst, Phil Simms.
Rumors have indicated that Romo has received offers to replace Phil Simms as the No. 1 analyst on CBS.
It has always been accepted that Romo would become a network analyst once his playing days were over.
Tony Romo is expected to be officially released by the Dallas Cowboys today.

He has already informed Cowboys owner Jerry Jones of his decision to retire.
Romo confirmed the news on Twitter, posting a photo of him in a blazer with a CBS logo. I always figured Tony Romo would chase a Lombardi Trophy one more time with either the Texans or Broncos after the Cowboys eventually released him. He had missed 27 games over the past two seasons as he dealt with back and collarbone injuries.
A source told SBJ Romo doesn't want to call "Thursday Night Football" games, because of his lack of experience in broadcasting.
Dak Prescott, the rookie quarterback replaced Romo, but impressed so much in the opening weeks, the 36-year-old Romo's days were numbered.
But Doocy said if Romo has indeed made the decision to move into broadcasting he's the type of person to throw himself into the job and try to become the best in that field as well.
The franchise leader with 34,183 yards passing and 248 touchdowns, Romo never parlayed his regular-season success into deep playoff runs the way Hall of Famers and multiple Super Bowl winners Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman did before him. Even with the early playoff loss, the Cowboys are contented in bringing back their star rookie as the starting quarterback next season and their long-term starter as well.
