Report: Tony Romo’s Contract With CBS Is Set To Expire And ESPN Is Preparing To Offer Him A Mega Deal

Tony Romo has quickly become a superstar in the booth and with his contract at CBS expiring, another network wants him.

According to Michael McCarthy of Front Office Sports, ESPN is preparing to offer Romo a multi-year deal that would pay him between $10-$14 million per year.

Romo is making about $4 million on the final year of his three-year rookie broadcasting deal at CBS.

CBS would have the right to match any contract offer Romo receives. 

ESPN currently has Booger McFarland as their color commentator for Monday Night Football. The top analysts spots at FOX and NBC are safely in the hands of Troy Aikman and Cris Collinsworth.

ESPN has previously attempted to hire Peyton Manning, but nothing came to fruition. There were reports that Peyton didn’t want to call game while Eli was still playing.

Romo has one more game to call before he becomes a free agent. He’ll be in the booth for Sunday’s Titans-Chiefs AFC Championship Game.

Last year, Romo was calling players before they happened.
