To clear salary-cap space and lock up their franchise quarterback, the Dallas Cowboys and Tony Romo reached an agreement on a blockbuster six-year extension worth $108 million, making him the highest paid player in franchise history.
In the first year of the extension, Romo will make $26.5 million, and after two years, he will make $40 million. Romo's money over the first three years -- with the likelihood that Dallas keeps him the next three seasons -- will be $57 million.

Apparently, this really helps their cap this year but still. This dude has 1 playoff win in his career, and now he has more guaranteed money in his deal than SB MVP Joe Flacco? Wow...
Of course, from a Skins perspective, I absolutely LOVE this deal. Pretty much takes them out of the running for the division for the next 6 years. LOL
