Tony Romo hit the jackpot on Thursday, as the 32-year-old quarterback reportedly agreed to a six-year, $108 million extension with the Dallas Cowboys. The real shocker for many people has been the $55 million in guaranteed money that Romo is expected to receive, which is about as good as it gets in the NFL. It’s even better when you consider the fact that Romo has never won a Super Bowl and has only one playoff victory in his career. That being said, quarterbacks are at a premium across the league. An above-average quarterback is an incredibly valuable asset, and Romo has put up tremendous stats despite his typically poor play in the clutch. That doesn’t mean Donovan McNabb agrees with the deal. In fact, the former Pro Bowler thinks it’s downright crazy. Tony Romo 6 yr 55 million dollar extension. Wow really, with one playoff win. You got to be kidding me — Donovan McNabb (@donovanjmcnabb) March 29, 2013 My bad everyone it 55 million guaranteed. It’s a total of 108 million, wow — Donovan McNabb (@donovanjmcnabb) March 29, 2013 If McNabb thought giving Romo a $55 million extension over six years was insane, he must have hit the roof when he realized that was just the guaranteed money and the deal itself was worth twice that. Although, I find it tough to believe anyone could think Romo isn’t worth an average of just over $8 million a year. Aside from the fact that players-turned-analysts usually don’t speak as candidly as McNabb did, the former Phildelphia Eagle has once again made himself look like a dufus on Twitter. Remember the whole congratulatory tweet for Danica Patrick? Someone needs to tell Donovan to start taking a deep breath before he fires off a tweet. Photo credit: Mark J.
