    Lets not forget about teams that has a good qb that he would take their spot. Teams like Houston, Tampa Bay, Philly, and Tennessee come to mind.

    Agreed they won't break the bank and I doubt Romo would try to make them. I think 5 year ~80ish is realistic though.

    If Dallas was to get a offer of two firsts for Romo i think they would do it. But i dont think a team would do that. QBs like Romo and better dont hit the market. Brees was average before Payton, and Peyton manning had just had serious surgery.

    i like that but id like it better if it was more realistically a 3 yr 42-45 mil deal. With Roster bonuses in yr 4, and 5. Easier to release him after yr 3 and cap hit is minimal

    Are you serious?

    That'd be atrocious. Bradford is not good and comes with a contract that is likely just as high as what Romo is going to sign for.

    It will likely be 5 so they can push the money way back. Can't do that with 3 for what he'll be making per year.

    If romo were an unrestricted fa with no threat of a franchise tag? If youre a team with cap space and no qb of course youll make him the highest paid qb in the nfl. But we dont live in that world...

    There more too.
    The easier list would be the teams that would not start him over what they have. That list would include teams with SB winning QBs (Brady, Rodgers, Roeth, Eli, etc) or teams with very good young QBs with upside (Kap, RG3, etc), or teams who have fairly young guys who they think can get it done (Ryan, Stafford).

    I said a 5 yr deal, with roster bonuses in yr 4, and 5. Which basically turns it into a 3 yr deal with 2 1 yr options.

    Actually, you're a little off-base. Brady's contract is already outdated and a QB of Brees' caliber is not going to hit the open market for years. It's VERY conceivable that Romo's contract would exceed both Brees and Manning. The league just saw two CBs get contracts upwards of $50+ million and WR that got a monster $100 million dollar deal.

    Romo, on the open market, would command more than everyone aforementioned. You don't have to like it but it is the reality.

    With the natural progression of salaries, he's probably right. Think how much a QB-deficient, beleaguered team like the Cards or Jags or Chiefs would give him.

    They are about to make Flacco the highest paid QB and that is a joke.

    A team like the Cardinals, with cap room to upgrade the OL, a pretty good defense, a stud WR and a coach who took the worst team in the NFL last year to the playoffs, would most certainly make Romo the highest paid player in the league.

    Tucker isn't wrong.

    What he describes were for a FA Romo which means no trade pieces at all.

    And he'd certainly become NFL's highest paid player even if he never actually saw the bulk of the contract.

    Dallas fans tend to fairly clueless but make no mistake plenty of teams feel if you give them Tony Romo they are going to win Super Bowls.

    Cleveland couldn't write that fat check fast enough. Jacksonville and many others would be right there.

    If we traded Romo, why would you want Orton? I would rather have a completely overmatched qb so we could lose all of our games, then draft Bridgewater or Manziel in the next couple of years. Zed for Ted, baby.

    yeah there are a couple of teams that could write a check for $40 million guaranteed right now and absorb that cap hit the first year.

    So if you could get two ones and say a fourth, you wouldn't take it? You would be happy with our cap situation and 8-8?

    Tony ought to do everything in his power to hit the market instead of taking a team friendly offer from the Cowboys.

    He could start by not redoing his contract for this season and the cap crippling effect it would have.

    Why would he want to stay in Dallas? He's been a complete failure here and most fans are sick of his big game collapses.

    He could get a new start somewhere else and make money like no one else in NFL history.

    Win, win for Tony Romo.

    complete failure?

    wow I guess your screen name is appropriate.

    But I do agree that he should leave. Then win a couple of rings somewhere else.

    Just to stick it to the morons that hate him
