Via NY Post:
Meanwhile, ESPN/ABC hope to add a Super Bowl in the upcoming round of new NFL TV deals, and having Romo as its lead analyst is viewed as helpful. The money ESPN might offer could get crazy, with six years and $10 million-plus per year seemingly possible.
CBS remains the favorite to retain Romo, but it has barely any leverage and will be forced to pay a number its executives found unimaginable a year ago. Romo is making a little more than $3 million this year in the final season of what is essentially his rookie broadcast deal.
Romo’s real love, though, is golf more than broadcasting. If Romo stays with CBS, it may have to contractually allow for him to potentially miss some regular-season Sundays as he tries to make cuts in PGA tournaments on Thursdays and Fridays.
ESPN has no choice but to make changes. Booger and Tessitore were far from good. We all deserve Tony Romo on Monday nights.
