Romo, Tony (QB)

Posted March 30, 2013 @ 1:19 a.m.
Romo and the Dallas Cowboys have agreed on a six-year contract extension worth $108 million, with about half of it guaranteed. The agreement was reported on the team's website Friday. The deal will lower Romo's salary cap number of $16.8 million for 2013, giving the team more room to sign free agents and draft picks.
Romo, who turns 33 next month and was entering the final year of his contract, gets $55 million guaranteed and could be with Dallas through 2019. Super Bowl winner Joe Flacco got $52 million guaranteed in the six-year, $120.6 million contract he signed with Baltimore earlier this month. Romo is the franchise leader in touchdown passes but has just one playoff win in six full seasons as the starter.

Cowboys put the franchise tag on Spencer for the second straight year, guaranteeing him a raise from the $8.8 million he made as the team's leading tackler in 2012. Spencer is moving to defensive end with Dallas' switch to the 4-3 defense. The 29-year-old Spencer was the biggest question for Dallas in free agency, which opened Tuesday. The six-year pro, who had a career-best 11 sacks last season, was set to become an unrestricted free agent.
