    QBs are expensive. Romo is not as bad (for an undrafted free agent) as some people make him out to be. he puts up good numbers. he does need to win a big game though/

    Tony Romo was scheduled to make $52M over the next 4 years, his cap hit for each of those years was over $16M.

    Until you hear the bonus structure, it's hard to know what the deal is.

    Bottom line here is if Romo played for another NFL team and turned out to be mediocre over the next few years, the GM who made that deal (55 MILLION guaranteed!?) would be crucified, but in Dallas, JJ isn't going to fire himself if Romo sucks going forward.

    Wow. $55MM guaranteed. These QB contracts are getting out of hand. But there won't be a bubble. I am a Romo apologist but at least Flacco carried his team to a SB.

    Whoa... $55M Guaranteed?

    So, there has to be an assumption that they are saving money against the cap this season.

    Year
    Base Salary Prorated*Bonus Roster Bonus
    2013 $5,000,000 $5,500,000 $2,580,000
    2014 $5,000,000 $5,500,000 $8,420,000
    2015 $6,000,000 $5,500,000 $6,000,000
    2016 $9,000,000 $5,500,000 $0
    2017 $15,000,000 $5,500,000 $0
    2018 $18,000,000 $5,500,000 $0

    Maybe?
