Tony Romo has quickly ascended into a television star for CBS. His commentary for NFL games has become popular due to his terrific analysis and predictions.
CBS knows how important Romo has become for its broadcast team. And yet, the company still hasn't found a way to secure a long-term agreement with the former superstar quarterback.
Romo signed a three-year contract with CBS back in 2017. With only one year remaining on his deal, he's seeking an annual salary of $10 million.
Earning $10 million per year would be a nice raise from Romo's current salary of $4 million.
Front Office Sports provided full details on the highly-coveted media personality.
According to Front Office Sports, contract talks between CBS and Romo have stalled with the upcoming season almost here. It seems like he could table negotiations and then look at his options on the open market.
Romo will certainly have his options to choose from if he decides to let his contract expire.
It'd be unfortunate to see CBS split up its current duo of Romo and Jim Nantz, but that could be a reality if contract talks go south.
Fans can hear Romo and Nantz on the call during a Week 1 matchup between the Cleveland Browns and Tennessee Titans.
