Reactions to Tony Romo's announced six-year contract extension, which comes with $55 million guaranteed and the potential to be worth $108 million in total, have been mixed. It appears some people are confused by what seems like a reward for an underwhelming career.
Why the Cowboys decided that one playoff win - he beat McNabb and the Eagles in 2010 - was enough to make the 32-year-old quarterback the highest-paid Dallas Cowboy in history is beyond most people's understanding, but former Eagles quarterback and NFL analyst Donovan McNabb was ready to share his thoughts almost immediately.
Tony Romo 6 yr 55 million dollar extension. Wow really, with one playoff win. You got to be kidding me— Donovan McNabb (@donovanjmcnabb) March 29, 2013
A bit too immediately, it seems; because McNabb didn't quite have that right. But Hugh Douglas still agreed.
