CBS ready to give Romo substantial raise.
Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback turned CBS analyst, Tony Romo, is set to receive a "substantial raise" from CBS once his three-year contract expires after next season, according to the New York Post.
The Post's Andrew Marchand reports Monday that Romo, who earns approximately $4 million annually, has one year left on his deal but CBS is prepared to give him a hefty chunk of change to keep him with the network.
Romo's analytical prowess was on full display during Sunday's AFC Championship Game between the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs.
Naturally, other broadcast networks are looking to sign him once his current deal expires, although, as Marchand notes, CBS has the right to match any offer he receives.
On top of the offers he'll receive for his expertise in the booth, Romo has also garnered interest from teams about returning to the field. Richard Deitsch of The Athletic recently asked Romo if he has received any such contract offers to put on the pads again.
"There are legitimate contract offers and there are, 'Hey, what are you thinking?'" Romo replied.
Romo and Jim Nantz will be on the call one more time this season for Super Bowl LIII on February 3 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
