by 7 months ago

Romo is getting paid $17 million a year by CBS which is the highest figure ever paid for an NFL analyst.

The contract will pay Romo around $17 million per season, which is more than the previous NFL high of $8 million per year John Madden received more than two decades ago. Even when adjusted for inflation — which would make Madden’s number $14 million — Romo still is the highest paid ever.

The deal is a long-term contract, with sources saying it is for significantly more than five years. This means the total value for Romo’s contract will surpass $100 million.

Apparently ESPN never made an offer for Romo despite previous reports.
