Recently we have heard whispers about the Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rodgers coming to terms on a long-term deal but according to a post by ESPNDallas.com, the Dallas Cowboys and Tony Romo are very close to beating Rodgers and the Packers to the punch.
According to the report, which cites sources close to the situation, a deal that would keep Romo in place as the franchise quarterback of the Cowboys is “imminent.”
The often talked about quarterback has been in negotiations with the team off and on since last summer but with the recent news that his contract would be voided if a deal was not reached before the end of the league year, meaning he would become a free agent and would not be able to be franchise tagged due to language in the deal. Therefore, urgency to get a deal completed was picked up on both sides.
It will be interesting to see what the numbers for Romo end up being as three quarterbacks (Joe Flacco, Drew Brees, Peyton Manning and soon to be a fourth Aaron Rodgers) have all gone over the $20 million mark, so we will see how much the Cowboys really value the quarterback that has taken them to the playoffs three times, while registering just one playoff victory.
Last season, Romo led the Cowboys to the doorstep of the playoffs before the team lost on the final weekend to the Redskins, costing themselves an NFC East title and a berth in the postseason. He threw for 4,903 yards to go along with 28 touchdowns and 19 interceptions in one of his better statistical seasons.
