New deal for Romo could come within “hours”

Tony Romo AP

This is what happens when a player has a team over a barrel.

According to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com, a new contract for quarterback Tony Romo is “imminent,” and could happen within the next few hours.

The Cowboys have always said they expected to do an extension this year, and the news that they couldn’t use the franchise tag on him next year hardly seems accidental now, a final twist near the end of a negotiation.

The Cowboys also needed the cap room a new deal for Romo would provide, as they’ve been cutting fringe players to sign new ones.

    I’m super excited.

    Excellent. It’s kind of cool seeing Dallas so irrelevant and insignificant as they’ve been for so long. Sign me up for a few more years.

    Romo sucks…

    Cowboys front office stated that Tony confirmed sending the signed agreement back earlier today…

    … but evidently it was intercepted before being received.

    Tony took full responsibility.

    How many years has Romo, been under center for the Pokes? How many playoff games in that time? How many playoff wins in that time? How many Red Zone fumbles?

    And you want to give him MORE years of this stunning play?

    What’s wrong with you?

    It’s easy to have the team over a barrel when the GM, Owner, and coach* are the same guy.

    *I am aware that Garrett is the coach (figurehead)

    Jerry Jones, worst GM in history of professional sports. Tony Romo deserves a new deal as much as Alex Rodriguez does. Romo is a BUM.

    Nothing to see here. Move along.

    As a Redskins fan this is great news

  12. bigj7769 says: Mar 29, 2013 3:46 PM

    Get him a deal and fix that seive like offensive line and they would b stacked. They haven’t had an O line or Off coord for YEARS

  13. GenXJay says: Mar 29, 2013 3:48 PM

    Redskins spent all their cap $ on a Tight end. So they’re out. Too bad, it would’ve been a perfect fit to lose games epic. Losses will continue to be boring next season.

    Thank You Jerry.!!!!!!! From YOUR NFC East DIVISION CHAMPIONS 2012 AND THEN SOME THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT AS A SHINING STAR. LOL…..

    Schefter tweeted that the deal is done. He’s now the highest paid player in Cowboys history.

  22. chattcowboy says: Mar 29, 2013 3:58 PM

    All of you sadskinfans you know you’re scared of this! Y’all want Romo to leave Dallas so bad, y’all can’t stand it! And y’all Eaglettes..Y’all have yet to Winn a Super Bowl!..Ha Haaa! Can’t say to much about the Giants even though we split last year.
    We’ll get Romo this new contract and give Doug Free his walking papers and pick up two Offensive Rhinos in the draft..Romo will have 6000yds easy! And the sad part is…y’all know it too!

  23. victorycruz says: Mar 29, 2013 3:59 PM

    I am a Giants fan, and this might be the best news I’ve heard all off season!! So now we have RGIII who will continue to get hurt and never play a full season, the Eagles with Vick’s old ass with horrible line, and Romo’s choke artist self for years to come in the NFC East. Love it!

  24. eddlandovereddie says: Mar 29, 2013 4:02 PM

    boy you can tell by the stupid comments on here that your teams must suck to always talk bad about the Cowboys. Find a team u hating bums

  25. rmal83 says: Mar 29, 2013 4:05 PM

    Tony Romo is a great qb! Hell yeah! I don’t understand y’all bashing him! Romo wasn’t the problem, it was the pieces around him! Not even Peyton Manning couldn’t done anything with this o line and inconsistent running game!

  26. jamaltimore says: Mar 29, 2013 4:06 PM

    Most overrated QB in the league and love that he keeps stealing from the worst GM/OWNER in the league!

  27. marylandcowboy says: Mar 29, 2013 4:09 PM

    I know that Tony Romo is not equal to the sweat that was on Troy Aikmans jock strap. However I would still take him over two thirds of the QBs in the NFL right now. If the Cowboys dump Romo, who is out there and available that is any better? Now with that being said I do think it’s time to draft his replacement and start grooming him. I do not think it’s going to be this year however. I don’t want them to draft a Stephen McGee as a project I would rather them draft a back from a big time school that teaches pro style offenses and right now they have too many other real needs to take a QB that high in the draft.

    Love this signing as an Eagles fan. It’s great to have a QB in your division that you know will never win the big one.

  29. necr0philia says: Mar 29, 2013 6:09 PM

    Looks like Matt Ryan is going to be paid! And paid GREAT!!!! Hell I can’t afford boloney and have to borrow underwear from my neighbor (without her knowing) and these guys are stealing all the money. I’m going to start my own company and call it Walmart or something. I just need a fresh new idea no one is doing and I’ll be paid too. Maybe a shoe rental business!!

  30. chattcowboy says: Mar 29, 2013 7:20 PM

    @andybo2..you should really be quiet as a church mouse..The Eaglettes haven’t won anything! We have 5 Superbowls Rings and Americas Quarterback! How’s that Michael Vick thing working out for ya?
