Dallas Cowboys Will Sign Tony Romo to 'Lucrative Extension' This Offseason

The Dallas Cowboys are in a tight salary cap situation and one way that they would be able to clear some room is to restructure starting quarterback Tony Romo’s current contract or sign him to an extension. There have been reports throughout the offseason that the Cowboys and Romo were working on a deal and now ESPN’s Adam Schefter says that a deal will certainly happen.

During an appearance on SportsCenter, ESPN’s Adam Schefter said that the two sides would absolutely come to terms on a “lucrative extension” at some point this offseason.

“When when you speak to people around the league that is absolutely going to get done,” Schefter said. “The only question is timing. It could be done in a week or it could be done in a month, but it will be done at some point this offseason.”

Romo has struggle in big game situations, but he has also been the victim of some unfair criticism at times.

There is little doubt that Romo is one of the top ten quarterbacks in the NFL and the best quarterback that Dallas has had in the past decade, so he has certainly earned the new deal that appears to be in his near future.

    Isn’t it sad how Rams Fans can be so optimistic about Sam Bradford or chief fans about Alex Smith, but we have yet to express such optimism as fans as a whole about Romo? Not taking anything away from Bradford or Smith, but don’t you guys think that both those teams would kill to have Romo? I personally believe that both those guys have the potential to succeed in their respective teams, but we are so lucky to have a guy like Romo that we take him for granted! We are the only team that has such a polarized social media, constantly debating Romo’s ability and talent. If it wasn’t for Romo, we would’ve been the ones selecting fourth overall this April!
