Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo reportedly wants a massive payday to remain with CBS.
According to a report from Michael McCarthy of Sporting News, Romo's representatives are looking for a contract extension paying him “eight figures” annually to remain at CBS.
Romo has one year left on his deal with CBS and could look to free agency to become the highest-paid television analyst.
While he currently makes $4 million per year, CBS is reportedly considering offering Romo a significant extension.
Here's more from McCarthy:
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.
The former Cowboys quarterback has become one of the most popular analysts in sports - even earning a nickname: "Romostrodamus."
Fans and analysts alike applaud Romo for his ability to call out plays before they happen.
While $10 million is a hefty price tag, it's not difficult to imagine a network shelling out major money to Romo. John Madden reportedly made $8 million in his prime, while Troy Aikman leads the industry with $7.5 million.
