The Dallas Cowboys have no yet met with Tony Romo’s agent to talk about a deal. Jerry Jones states:
“We haven’t pushed it. These things are very complicated, and it’s not necessarily complicated face to face. You go ask how a lot of these deals are done. They don’t [involve] a whole lot of talking until the time to get it done. You gather information, you see where you want to be, they get the same information we’re getting and you say, ‘Hey this is where it is.” – ESPN
Romo will make 16.8M next season which is his final season and is going against salary cap. According to ESPN, Cowboys are $20M over salary cap.
