How much do the Dallas Cowboys value starting quarterback Tony Romo?
Apparently enough to make him the highest-paid player in franchise history.
Romo will reportedly receive a six-year extension worth $108 million, per ESPN’s Adam Shefter.
Included in the 6-2, 230-pound quarterback’s contract extension is $55 million in guaranteed money—the second-most guaranteed money in NFL history—surpassing the $51 million that Baltimore Ravens QB and Super Bowl XLVII MVP Joe Flacco just got in guaranteed money and tying the $55 million that New Orleans Saints star signal-caller Drew Brees received last July.
The guy with the most guaranteed money in NFL history goes by the name of Tom Brady (57 million).
