Tony Romo positioned to cash in
Some valid, some ridiculous.
Those of you who think the Cowboys will never win a title with Romo at the helm had better get used to the idea that he's going to end his career wearing a blue star on the side of his helmet.
Jerry Jones loves him. So does Jason Garrett.
Romo is among the NFL's best quarterbacks, no matter which standard you choose to judge them. We all understand he's not in the top group with Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and a couple of others.
But he's certainly on the next level with players such as Philip Rivers, Michael Vick and Joe Flacco.
And that's why you shouldn't be shocked by Romo's next contract -- the one that's going to provide him with about $25 million guaranteed in the first season.
Uh huh. That's right.
