PLAYERS: Tony RomoEd Werder
TEAMS: Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys kicked off contract negotiations with quarterback Tony Romo’s representatives this week.  Before anyone thinks a deal will get done soon, ESPN’s Ed Werder is now convinced that Romo will wait until Joe Flacco signs his extension with the Ravens. I’ve been convinced that Tony Romo is waiting for Joe Flacco to negotiate new deal with Ravens. How close will Flacco be to Brees’ $100M? — Ed Werder (@Edwerderespn) February 22, 2013 Flacco’s agent started meeting with the Ravens tonight and they’re hoping to get something done before March 4th. While Romo’s stats are much better than Flacco’s, Flacco has been nothing but  short of great in the playoffs and 2012 of course was nothing different after leading the Ravens to their second Super Bowl title in franchise history. I don’t think Romo will get the same amount of more money than Flacco, but he might get a tad less.  I could see the Cowboys giving him a $17-$19 million per year deal.   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); })();

  • In what universe does Romo think he should get the same money as a playoff winning, Super Bowl champion? Dream on... OH wait, this in Jerry Jones and his football expert family choosing and evaluating talent. Yup, Romo may get it....
  • I don't see how Tony can expect anything close to what Flacco will get. Tony 1 playoff win, Flacco superbowl champion.
  • This is beyond CRAZY!!! Read the other 2 posts. Why is J. Jones throwing good money after bad? Romo is cursed at Dallas! If Jones is this stupid, then I guess he deserves several more years of misery from Romo!!! Me? I may have to start watching baseball. :( :( :(
  • Of course, the hillbilly will pay Romo. The hillbilly won't be told what to do ever. He wants Romo and he'll give Romo a fat contract. Draft another quarterback and start grooming him as insurance? No way, that makes too much sense, so you can count the hillbilly out on that one.
  • I am a Cowboys fan and have been all of my life. No disrespect to Tony Romo but he is an overpaid starting quarterback that should be at least a third stringer. There is no way he has enough talent to start for any NFL team. I am tired of all the hype surrounding him. As long as he is the quarterback for the Cowboys they will never win a SuperBowl. Jerry Jones needs to swallow his pride and admit that he needs to find a young prospect out of college. You need a hungry young quarterback that is willing to come in on a one or two year deal and if he doesn't perform he knows he will hit the road. I don't understand paying these athletes so much money for underachieving. The team gets stuck with a quarterback with a multimillion dollar deal that you can not get rid of. It is time to see Romo leave Dallas. Lets face it he is not the man for the job. He has proved that year after year. Put a clipboard in his hand on the sideline and give someone else a chance. He has had enough time.
