Tony Romo went from an experimental color commentator to the most beloved analyst in all of sports, and now he wants to be paid like it.

The exact figure is $10 million per year, and if CBS doesn’t pay it, you can be assured ESPN will.
For reference, Troy Aikman makes around $7.5 million a year commentating for Fox, and Jon Gruden made $6.5 million a year doing Monday Night Football on ESPN before accepting a head coaching job with the Raiders.
The 38-year old Romo is currently bounded to a three-year deal that he signed before the 2017 NFL season that pays him $4 million a year.
