Tony Romo Has a New Contract

Romo happy - and rich!

Jerry Jones could have waited for the offseason. He could have just placed the franchise tag on Tony Romo and had him for the average rate for a starting QB. Instead Jerry Jones has gone ahead and locked Tony Romo up for the next 6 years with a contract worth around 65.7 mil.

 

Romo has had a great season so far, and it’s possible the price would continue to rise before the season was over. For that reason alone, I am not at all surprised Jerry Jones decided to get a deal done before the offseason. While the franchise tag has always been an option, past histories with other clubs show it doesn’t always leave the player happy. The majority of the hold outs over the last few seasons were players unhappy about being franchised. While it’s not certain Romo would have held out next season if he got the tag, I doubt it would have been something the Cowboys owner would have enjoyed thinking about with his starting QB.

    I apologize I shorted Romo a little here. He will be making 67.5 mil.

    I think you got the number wrong. The Dallas Cowboys website says it is $67.5 million. They keep changing the article too. It was $69 million earlier this evening. But I think ESPN had got it right all along and kept saying the right number.
