Jerry Jones: No Tony Romo extension talks imminent

Tony Romo AP

Both Texas-based starting quarterbacks won games in Week One, but only one got a new contract.

The Texans decided they didn’t need to see anything more from Matt Schaub and signed him to a four-year deal with up to $62 million in total money and just under $30 million guaranteed. That seemed to be more of an issue for the Ravens and Joe Flacco, whose contract runs out at the end of this season, than for Tony Romo and the Cowboys. That didn’t stop Cowboys owner Jerry Jones from getting asked about an extension for Romo, whose six-year, $67.4 million deal is up at the end of the 2013 season.

“I don’t even get into when or how regarding contracts,” Jones said onKRLD-FM, via the Dallas Morning News. “That’ll have a timetable that I’m sure will be comfortable for Tony as well as the Cowboys.”

How quickly things can change. There was a lot of talk about the Cowboys potentially moving on from Romo after this season if the team had another disappointing season. A strong performance in an opening night victory over a divisional rival has a way of changing the conversation.

One game is still one game, though, and that shouldn’t change the timeframe for a new Romo deal when there’s still 31 regular season games left on the current one.

    They’ll be begging for Kirk Cousins in two years.

    Romo had a good game against a depleted Giants secondary but still managed to throw and INT that could have been a TD for the Giants if not for a nice goal line stand by the defense. It’s too early to resign Romo. Let’s see what happens this year first.

    Whoever said he wouldnt be re-signed is an asinine HACK. Probably Floria.

    When you guys figure out all that talk was coming from people like you and no one important everything will clear up for you.

    And all the ones talking about a ” depleted Giants secondary” need to remember Romo had 6 tds and one int against their starters last year and still lost twice.

    And what did the giants awesome D line do against a depleted Cowboys O line again?

    We all know 4000+ yard, 30+ TD, 10-15 INT quarterbacks grow on trees.

    “How quickly things can change. There was a lot of talk about the Cowboys potentially moving on from Romo after this season”

    From who? From you guys and a couple other writers, and you were basing it on your opinion only, with no sources close to the team. Hey, if there is a better QB available…grab him, I’m a Dallas fan first and foremost, so I want what is best for the team, but unless Dallas flames out and wins 3-4 games, they most likely won’t be in position to grab Barkley or any other blue chip QB, and of all the QB’s that are better than Romo, those teams aren’t going to trade them to Dallas, because QB’s better than Romo don’t grow on trees.

    You put Romo with a guy like Bellichick, McCarthy, Jim Harbaugh, Sean Peyton, or a few others and all this crap talk about him stops. Romo makes mistakes, so does everyone else. The problem is the upper powers there. Garrett has a lot of upside but is a little too green still and Jones doesn’t let the team do what it needs to do. When they fire on all cylinders they are nearly unstoppable. Their offense is just as “capable” as Green Bay’s. Don’t get upset Pack fans, it’s true if they were utilized fully…. and their defense is better. There’s no reason they shouldn’t be a top 5 team if Jones would just put the right team management in place. Romo is not the problem in Dallas

    I was misquoting myself earlier. I meant to say, I’ll be begging for it by Kirk and his Cousins in 2 years.

    Also, I know everyone thinks I’m insane, but thats not it at all. I just lack self confidence bc I have a tiny pee pee, so I compensate by trying to be funny on the internet.

    Also, I think the Skins are the greatest, bc they have the nicest butts in their uniforms.

    He needs to do something to further increase his value….I know! He can hold the ball for the placekicker! Great weekend for him to start that, up on the road in Seattle….what could go wrong?

    Romo grew on a tree?

    No rush to extend Romo’s contract, this is a make or break year for the cowboys. Don’t know why the Texans extended Shuab’s, its only been one game and against the dolphins. They should have waited until at least mid season or the end of the season. Ryan Fitzpatrick robbed the bills, as soon as he signed his big contract, things went down hill, which even more so you should wait to evaluate players at the end. Romo is a good QB but the only thing he has to prove is the ability to close out games, which he did against the giants, now let’s see if he can keep it going and get his team deep in the playoff because right now, nobodys giving them the benefit of a doubt.

    “Sadly 4000+ yard 30+ td 10-15 pick qbs are growing on trees in the modern nfl”

    Then why is Tony Romo the only QB in NFC East history to have a season like that?

    I dunno, they would probably mess around with something else and make the NFL change the rules again.

    Romo is like Marino puts up great numbers and has nothing to show for it. When the game matters more he misses a wide open Austin Miles that would’ve won the game and the division last year. He is the greatest September QB playing right now. All empty stats really. He’s no good.
