According to Matt Mosley of FOX Sports, Cowboys QB Tony Romo could be targeting as much as $40-$45 million guaranteed in his next contract.
Mosley also expects them to include a large signing bonus that will help to lower his cap hit for the time being.
For the sake of comparison, Drew Brees signed a five-year extension worth $100 million and included $40 million guaranteed last year.
Romo, 32, was most likely waiting for Joe Flacco to get his deal out of the way and use that as a basis for his next deal. Flacco received $52 million in guaranteed, but it’s also worth noting that he just won a Super Bowl and is still only 28 years old.
The Cowboys haven’t done themselves any favors by not drafting a young quarterback to develop, so Romo has plenty of leverage to work with, despite having won only a single postseason game in his career.
