Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback, Tony Romo, is the GOAT broadcaster according to a new deal which seems him collecting a cool $17 million, per season.
According to the New York Post’s Andrew Marchand, Tony Romo has become the highest-paid NFL analyst in TV history after he signed an approximate $17 million per season contract. The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback is considered one of the best at color analysis right now and this new contract has proven just that.
He’ll stay with CBS, despite being headhunted by other networks like ESPN, according to Marchand who spoke on the matter earlier this week.
ESPN was reported to be willing to pay Romo, “crazy money.” Looks like they won’t get their chance … at least not for some time.
Romo announced his retirement from the sport on April 4, 2017. This deal is considerably more than his reported NFL salary, according to Arash Markazi.
He played his entire professional NFL career with the Cowboys which spanned from 2003-2016. Some of his career highlights include Pro Bowl selection (2006, 2007, 2009, 2014), Second-team All Pro (2014), NFC passing yards leader (2009) and NFC passing touchdowns leader (2007).
He began his broadcasting career in April 2014 when he replaced Phil Simms.
