ESPN Prepared To Make Tony Romo Highest-Paid Sportscaster In History

Recommended Posts

Quote

ESPN is preparing an offer that would make Tony Romo the highest-paid sportscaster in TV history, with a multi-year deal that would pay him between $10 million to $14 million annually, said sources.

ESPN declined to comment. A representative for Romo could not be reached for comment.

If signed by ESPN, Romo could succeed Booger McFarland as the analyst on “Monday Night Football,” said sources. 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. 

No deal has been signed yet, and one source said any negotiation for a new contract for Romo might not wrap up until a month or two after Super Bowl 54.

I would really hope Nantz would go with him if this happens. They're great together.

Sucks he’d be doing less games, but it could save MNF. Get Booger out of there please.

these new TV deals could shake up some things up when it comes to TV. ESPN getting a late afternoon Sunday game with Romo calling the game? wonder what else could happen

It’d be nice if he could do Thursday and Monday nights.   Might actually watch more Thursday games if he called them

If Booger is fired he won't be commentating anymore.

Giving Romo a blank check is making more and more sense

If he isn't commentating anymore we won't be able to hear him commentate.

I was channeling my inner Booger.

If the television is on there might be a show being broadcast.

I think Romo has the talent and charisma to do this for a long time. This would go a long way towards solidifying his career in broadcasting.

Tony is really smart and I enjoy hearing what he has to say but his voice is annoying.

Anything is better than Witten, though.
