Tony Romo tables contract talks with Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys are 2-1 and when they are winning, their owner and general manager Jerry Jones is willing to open up the checkbook.
He and his organization have recently attempted to work on quarterback Tony Romo’s contract extension and those talks have been tabled.
Jones told the Dallas News that he is not concerned about losing his star quarterback.
“We talked. We thought he had an interest, and he knows we have an interest,” Jones said. “But he wants to just concentrate on the season.”
“We’re not doing anything on the contract right now,” Jones said. “We just haven’t done anything on it. He’s just concentrating on right now, this year, what he’s doing on the field.
“We’re fine with that, too. He’s not going anywhere.”
Romo is one of the few players in the league that you can envision playing in another uniform.
That said, the Cowboys not only want to get him extended to keep his potential in-house. His 2013 cap number is $16.8 million and it would behoove them greatly to get his price-tag down to the more reasonable seven figure range.
This could all change if Romo proceeds to be a part of tanking another Dallas season that was double-dipped in potential yet sank in tradgedy.
