Tony Romo’s shift from the stadium to the broadcast booth was coherent. According to the ex-Dallas Cowboys quarterback, such transition has paid off lavishly.
Having retired from Cowboys since April 2017 prior to joining CBS as its lead color analyst the following season, Romo instantly found he had a knack for in-game analysis. He is known for his acquaintance of the game, thanks to his 14-year stint in the National Football League (NFL).
Per the New York Post’s Andrew Marchand, Romo’s deal will occur over the course of 10 years, giving him between $175 million and $180 million. Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, however, CBS locked Romo up for only three years and that any extension is implied on whether the NFL will prolong its rights deal with CBS (the current deal is locked up until 2022).
Marchand added that CBS extended its contract with Romo in February, offering him about $17 million every year. The said deal is worth more annually than the entirety of his $10 million worth of rookie contract at CBS over three years.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Romo is worth $70 million, but it’s not completely sure what his actual net worth is. He made more than $127 million in the NFL alone and has secured endorsements from Corona, Pizza Hut, Topps, and Under Armour. Besides, Romo is also a renowned philanthropist, having supported numerous charities over the years.
