Tony Romo To Receive $108 Million Extension From Cowboys
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has won playoff victory in his 11-year NFL career. The Cowboys feel as though Romo can lead them to a Super Bowl. Otherwise, they wouldn't have signed him to a blockbuster 7-year extension worth $108 million, and $55 million guaranteed. That's $3 million more in guaranteed cash than Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco received in his mega free-agent deal last month.
Romo's deal makes him the highest-paid player in Cowboys history.
While Romo hasn't had much success in the postseason, he is the franchise-leader in touchdowns, and single-season touchdowns and passing yards.
ESPN's Tony Archer and Adam Schefter were the first to report the story.
