Tony Romo, CBS reportedly have not had substantive new contract talks
Tony Romo has enjoyed great success in his first two seasons as an analyst with CBS, and it would stand to reason that network executives are going to do everything in their power to keep him for years to come. However, it does not sound like the two sides are close to a new deal.
Andrew Marchand of the New York Post reports that Romo and CBS have had “no substantive talks” regarding a new contract for the former Dallas Cowboys star. Romo is entering the final year of the first deal he signed with CBS, but CBS Sports Chairman Sean McManus said he expects him to remain with the network “for a long time.” Romo would not reveal whether or not he has been discussing a new contract with his bosses.
“I Bill Belichick contract talk,” he joked, referencing how the New England Patriots coach will never discuss anything related to player or personnel contracts.
Romo currently makes around $3 million per year with CBS, but all indications have been that the network intends to do everything necessary to keep him. Romo has enjoyed instant success and fans love the way he’s able to diagnose plays before they happen. He’ll surely be coveted by every major network.
