Romo asking for $30M guaranteed
 
A league source tells Pro Football Talk that agent Tom Condon has requested on behalf of Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo a contract including guaranteed money in excess of $30 million. Such a deal would give Romo more guaranteed money than Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, who pocketed 30 million when signed a long-term deal several years ago. Manning was also represented by Condon. As we hear it, the Cowboys aren't biting. Though they've concluded that Romo is for real and deserves to be paid accordingly, owner Jerry Jones isn't prepared to fork over that kind of money yet.

I wouldn't fork that kind of money over to him either. He really hasn't proven anything yet.

well if an overrated fat jamarcus russell can bamboozel al davis into a 31 million dollard guaranteed contract without even taking a snap the tony homo has to be worth at least 60

Romo will set the salary/bonus target Ben will be shooting at - too bad Jones did not sign Romo preseason - Romo's # is now much higher which in turn will boost Ben's target.

the best thing roger goodell could do at this point is put a contract structure for nfl players similar to the way the nba has theirs. How long will it take before a player gets a rod type of money?

not long.. probably next year since we all know that someone will only have a year left on their contract. and if a rookie can get 30mil in guaranteed money what you do think a person that has proven to be a winner will want.. :wink02:

Like peyton manning. What do you think polian would do if manning went into his office today and said I want 100 million in guarantees. You are backed into a corner and have no choice. In my opinion the biggest thing wrong with the nfl today is there is no rookie salary cap.

i agree. i mean the russell thing was nuts... he has never taken a snap in the NFL and gets that kind of guaranteed money.. could you imagine what the NBA rookies would be asking... i mean just think of it.. no rookie cap could you picture what Lebron would have asked for?

I might get stones thrown at me, But quite honestly I wouldnt want the steelers to give ben 30 million in guarantees at this stage of his career.
