    Fact is that is what many do complain, without that they have nothing to say. Romo deal was not out of line. People act as if he is the highest paid QB in the league and he is not. He is paid big money as most QB are unless they are under a rookie contract but for the most part Romo contract is in line with the position.

    Did you tell him you know a guy who would love to go to some Bengals games with him to see that BETTER QB?

    What happens if they cut him 4-5 year into the deal?

    Will those numbers continue to go down or is this deal back loaded?

    I'm asking cause I have no idea what the numbers look like on their deal.

    The dead money keeps going down by $2.4M.

    The Bengals really made a great deal as far as protecting themselves if they cut ties with Daltton early.

    Pretty dang smart deal on their part then and if that's how they were able to get the deal done then other teams need to start following suit with those types of deals so they don't wreck their cap if a guy they sign doesn't pan out like they believed he would.

    I know right --- they have so hated the Bengals making the playoffs the last three years since he arrived.

    Rodgers, Manning, and Brady (up to now at least with Brady) are the only 3 QBs in the league where, assuming those guys are healthy for the entire season, making the playoffs is basically a certainty.

    That's why those 3 guys are at the top of the list.

    Im not a Romo fan but i understand thats the going rate for a QB that puts up the numbers he does. Im not a stat person but todays NFL is about stats first and wins second.

    I appreciate the snide remark, like most ***** on the board. BUT.......Look at his stats. They don't warrant 115 mil.

    Isn't that only a problem if Romo doesn't play?

    I believe if he is cut. I wasn't trying to make a commentary as much just give out info in response to the thread. I follow this guy on Twitter, who does sports in Houston, and saw the tweet and article. But yeah dead money comes into effect as salary cap space if a player is cut and this what was allocated for that year.

    Bad comparison. Romo is the better quarterback.

    The main issue is his age and Jerruh's belief that there is some guarantee that because he didn't play his first 4 years that he is a 'young' 34 years old.

    If he gets a semi-serious injury in the next 2 seasons, we might as well just pack it in because his cap hits are so high. And they didn't have to be since we could have gotten a much cheaper extension for Romo.

    Dalton's contract was necessary. He's their franchise QB and he's only 26 years old. Romo was still under a well paying contract and we gave a giant extension to him while he is past his prime.
