    6 more years of mediocrity but worth 100 mil. Jerry is a moron.

    55 million is outrageous for a QB who has won one post season game.

    Just as many of us predicted. 17-18 mil per year if stretched out so the "real dollars" may be lower. I was guessing 40 or so guaranteed (maybe 40) so we'll see.
    The only real money is what is guaranteed, plus year 1 salary.

    ...
    wow
    55 guaranteed.
    This contract is written to void after four years I bet.

    Not at all.
    All other things being equal, quarterback contracts are always higher than other positions, and recent contracts are always higher than older ones. So a fresh franchise quarterback contract pretty much always going to be highest in team history.

    A little more than I expected. I don't think he earned that amount but oh well.

    I have to see how this will impact our cap 3 years down the road once he's regressed.

    Highest paid Cowboy is relative, onsidering the last QB worth anything was aikman and the contract he signed in 1993 was the highest in the league 50 mill over 8 years with 11mill guaranteed. The league now has players approaching the 100 million mark for 6 year deals with 40-50 million guaranteed.

    Holy Paycheck Batman!! Wowsers... But I do love me some Romo! Without him we are nothing in this league QB is everything. And you got to pay to play these days.

    Good job to management for getting it done and now onto the business of winning!!

    Great day for the Cowboys and a good jumping off point for Romo haters. And I'm not even gloating here, just genuinely wonder why anyone would want to stay on if they don't like the face of the franchise. Who are you rooting for then, Jerry? The ghost of Tom Landry? Let it go, find a new team.

    Yeah. The big story all offseason is going to be Romo getting more guaranteed money than Flacco. NFL Network is building an hour long special as we speak.

    Anyway.......I wonder how much cap room this gives us?
