PLAYERS: Tony RomoEd Werder
TEAMS: Dallas Cowboys
With the Dallas Cowboys now $21 million over the current salary cap, they would be smart to give quarterback Tony Romo a cap-friendly contract extension, per ESPN’s Ed Werder. Here’s why Tony Romo has leverage. Cowboys $21M over cap. That’s with Romo counting $16.8M. Cap-friendly deal with QB solves problems — Ed Werder (@Edwerderespn) February 19, 2013 Werder doesn’t believe Cowboys owner Jerry Jones will let Romo play out the final year of his contract. Nothing yet between Tony Romo and Cowboys. But no way Jerry makes QB uncomfortable by playing out deal. That would make JJ uncomfortable — Ed Werder (@Edwerderespn) February 17, 2013 I think Romo will have a contract extension before the 2013 regular season begins.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();
