The Dallas Cowboys and quarterback Tony Romo agreed to a six-year contract extension according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The deal is reportedly worth $108 million.
Are you ready for this?
According to Schefter, Romo will actually receive more guaranteed money than Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, who signed a six-year, $120 million deal last month – $55 million in guaranteed money compared to $52 million for Flacco.
Romo’s extension reinforces three facts.
1.) Quarterbacks are really overpaid
2.) NFL owners should be drug tested because clearly Jerry Jones is whacked out of his mind.
3.) The Cowboys won’t win another Super Bowl until at least 2018.
According to Spotrac.com, Romo’s current deal contains $13.5 million in dead money from previous restructures and bonuses that will now carry over into the new deal.
