Dallas Cowboys VP Stephen Jones was on 105.3 The Fan yesterday and said that Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo deserves to be paid.
Jones said, “We have a good quarterback here and we want to reward him. He’s in the last year of his contract. Our goal is to not let our quarterback run out of contract. We have a good one here and we want to reward him.”
“At the same time, when you have a good one and you’re fortunate enough to have a good one then he’s going to take up the biggest part of your cap space, so you have to be partners with one another and you have to do things. No one wants to win more, no one wants to have success more than Tony. He knows in order to do that we have to manage our cap and he plays a big part in that because the percentage of the cap that he takes.
The Dallas Cowboys are currently 20 million dollars over the salary cap and if the team and Romo come to an agreement it would reduce Romo’s 2013 cap hit of 16.8 million dollars almost in half.
