Yes, Simms is gone!


Now, get Joe Buck out of there and we might have something!

Since Romo loves golf and football I'd say he's excited for his new job.

I agree. Not sure which article it was that I read a couple days ago, but it stated that Romo has made over 125 million off of his football contracts. Thats not including endorsements or anything else. Not bad for what, 15 years worth of work, eh?

...with Gruden making $6.5 mil/yr, Tony easily gets $1+ mil/yr.....think he'll get by ok.........

Yeah Romo making a killing by invoking his one-time "get paid" clause when being cut basically giving him his entire salary for next year...that's a whole lot more than he would have gotten with any other team...

I think he would rather play both.  He's still a young man

@AdamSchefter

It's not just FOX in pursuit of Cowboys QB Tony Romo; it's also CBS making a strong push to add him to its team, per sources.

 

This could be posturing to force Cowboys hand as Cowboys did not want to release him.

 

No one would retire and walk away from some deferred or other future money or be subject to paying back some sign bonus. Except Barry Sanders, who of course, probably had no idea and was stunned when courts ruled he had to pay back millions in sign bonus.

 

If Romo goes and talks to Favre for advice.......he could resurface several times yet.

@TomPelissero

In a statement, CBS says it is discussing with Phil Simms his future role, confirms Tony Romo will be lead game analyst. End of another era.

I predict that Romo will still blow at least one game in the fourth quarter, and be out of the booth, injured, by week 8.

Fumbled lines that lead to injured vocal cords?
