With only one year left on his current contract, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is scheduled to be a free agent at the conclusion of next season. With a $16.8 million cap hit coming, many assumed at some point the two sides will begin talks on a new extension. According to Cowboys executive V.P. Stephen Jones, those talks have officially begun.
Jones had this to say about Romo when he joined 105.3 The Fan in Dallas.
“We have a good quarterback and we want to reward him. He’s in the last year of a contract and our goal is to not let the quarterback run out of contract.’’
“I think on this particular situation with Tony is we think we have a great quarterback and we want him to be our quarterback here for the next four to five years,” Jones said. “When you have a good one and you’re fortunate enough to have a good one, then he’s going to take up the biggest part of your cap space, so you have to be partners with one another and you have to do things. No one wants to win more, no one wants to have success more than Tony. He knows in order to do that we have to manage our cap and he plays a big part in that because the percentage of the cap that he takes.’’
While the critics are never far when discussing Tony Romo, the fact remains he is an above average quarterback and those are hard to find in the NFL.
The Cowboys would be smart to lock him up then look for his successor a few years down the road.
