Earlier this year, former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo made the decision between two lucrative offers from ESPN and CBS.
Romo decided to remain with CBS, who gave him his first shot at being an analyst when he retired from the league. Of course, retaining the star quarterback didn't come cheap.
According to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post, Romo signed a deal that will pay him $17.5 million per season. But that's not all, he also reportedly has an assistant and travels in a private jet.
"Romo’s yearly salary is $17.5 million with another $500,000 divided between private travel and an assistant," Marchand reported. "That means he would make $900,000 per three-hour telecast. Romo’s base of $17.5 million would be a top-50 contract for players this season and his overall deal is fully guaranteed."
Romo stepped into the booth alongside Jim Nantz and the pair became arguably the best NFL broadcast tandem in history.
Fresh off of reading NFL defenses on the field, Romo stepped in and did the same from the broadcast booth for the fans watching from home.
He'll be back in the booth on Sunday afternoon as the New England Patriots square off against the Miami Dolphins. The game kicks off at 1:00 p.m. ET from Gillette Stadium in Foxboro.
