In 2013, Tony Romo famously signed a 6-year, $108 million contract extension. Combined with the $11.5 million he was already owed as salary in 2013, that gave him a 7-year, $119.5 million contract at the start of the 2013 season. In the 4 seasons from 2013-2016, Romo played only 34 games, and collected $65.5 million - an average of $1,926,470.58 per game played. That is the equivalent of $30.82 million per 16 games played. Keep this in mind when you hear news about the contracts QB's are getting today. Update: The numbers above are documented, and indisputable. Calling them dishonest doesn't change the facts.
