Going from a quarterback nobody wanted, to a rookie in the booth, to the most sought after commodity for the major sports networks, Tony Romo’s rise to sportscaster stardom has been swift.
Romo’s approachable, authentic and fun tone in the booth combined with his second to none football analysis and anticipation for what’s about to happen next has landed him in a position with ESPN reportedly preparing to offer the quarterback the richest contract in sportscasing history.
Per Front Office Sports , the world-wide leader in sports could pay out $10 million to $14 million to Romo annually.
Romo would likely take the place of Booger McFarland as co-host of Monday Night Football alongside Joe Tessitore.
According to FOS, Romo could also potentially quarterback ESPN’s NFL game coverage if parent Disney acquires a Sunday afternoon game package from rival Fox Sports, CBS Sports, and NBC Sports during the next round of NFL TV negotiations in 2020-2021.
The 39-year-old former Dallas Cowboy quarterback is currently making about $4 million annually on the final year of his three-year rookie broadcasting deal at CBS.
CBS has a right to match any offers for Romo.
