Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback turned CBS commentator, Tony Romo, reportedly wants a contract extension worth $10 million a year. If he gets his way, Romo would become the highest paid sports TV analyst in history.
Via Sporting News:
Here’s a prediction Tony Romo himself would like: He could become the first $10 million a year TV analyst in sports history.
Romo’s representatives are looking for a contract extension paying him “eight figures” annually to remain as CBS Sports’ top NFL analyst in 2020 and beyond, sources tell Sporting News.
Romo and CBS have been a perfect marriage so far. The most likely scenario is still this: CBS extends its star commentator’s deal with a nice fat raise.
Who would ever entertain a comeback if they could take home $10 million a year to predict plays? There’s no way Romo will ever play again.
There’s also no way CBS doesn’t pay him the money. They don’t want to chance losing out on the former quarterback and his ability to breakdown plays before the snap.
