Details Of ESPN’s Crazy Tony Romo Offer Revealed
The details of ESPN’s crazy Tony Romo offer were revealed recently.
The worldwide leader in sports has had a Monday Night Football issue for quite some time now.
A combination of uninteresting games and poor commentary has made it the least desirable TV package in all of sports.
That may soon change, though.
According to Front Office Sports, when Romo becomes a broadcasting free agent this year ESPN will offer him a record-setting deal.
SCOOP: 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, according to sources.@MMcCarthyREV with the details.https://t.co/M9kBoBsJYg

It will make him the highest paid broadcaster in sports history.
“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,” the report notes.
ESPN also has plans to pursue additional NFL TV rights as they become available, so Romo theoretically would not simply be limited to Monday Night Football.
In fact, the worldwide leader may even squeeze itself into the Super Bowl rotation.
It remains to be seen if CBS will ultimately match ESPN’s offer or let Romo walk.
