Andrew Marchand of the New York Post reports that Tony Romo and CBS have agreed to a contract that will make him the highest-paid NFL analyst in TV history.
According to Marchand, Romo will make around $17 million per season over more than five years, which means his new contract will surpass $100 million.
Adam Schefter adds that Romo receives a three-year contract, but it can extend to a 10-year deal if the NFL extends its contract with CBS, even if the new rights deal is shorter than seven years.
Last we heard regarding Romo, ESPN was preparing to submit him an offer that would make him the highest-paid sportscaster in TV history to succeed Booger McFarland as the “Monday Night Football” analyst.
Romo reportedly made around $4 million per year as part of his last contract.
Romo, 39, originally signed on with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of Eastern Illinois back in 2003. He played 13 seasons for the Cowboys before Dallas released him a few years ago after they were unable to trade him.
Romo then retired in 2017 and joined CBS Sports as an analyst.
