ESPN is reportedly attempting to lure former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo to their network. In their attempt to do so, ESPN is allegedly offering Romo between $10 and $14 million per year for his services. If Romo were to accept the offer, he would be expected to headline the network’s Monday Night Football coverage. ESPN is also currently looking to acquire a Sunday game package during NFL TV negotiations in 2021. If they succeed, Romo would also headline coverage for that as well.
Currently, Romo works as a game analyst with Jim Nantz on CBS. He is reportedly earning $4 million per year on the final year of a three year deal. The former quarterback’s salary is only outdone by former Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman’s deal at FOX. Aikman reportedly brings home approximately $7 million per year. He is set to renegotiate his deal following Super Bowl LIV next month in Miami.
Neither Romo or ESPN has commented on these reports.
