I wouldn't read too much into the Romo signing. Just looks like a smart business move to get not have to worry about losing Romo later without compensation.
If the Cowboys FO deems Romo worthy of keeping after this year they will give him an extension during the '06 season to which he is already signed and keep him out of the FA market. If they don't think he is worth of it they can cut him without a significant cap hit ($150k is nothing) next year. But if they like what he does this year they can keep him next year and then sew him up long term.
