CBS knows that Tony Romo is on fire in the broadcast booth as their lead analyst, and generating a lot of interest in the process.
According to The New York Post’s Andrew Marchand, CBS “is prepared to give Romo a substantial raise”, who has one year left on his deal and currently makes around $4 million annually.
Not only has Romo generated interest from CBS rivals, but potentially also from teams trying to lure him back to the playing field.
According to The Athletic’s Richard Deitsch, Romo eluded to potential offers from NFL teams looking to bring him back to the field.
“There are legitimate contract offers and there are, ‘Hey, what are you thinking?’” Romo said when asked about contract offers from NFL teams.
CBS has the right to match any offer that Romo receives, so he is likely staying put at the network.
