Who’s Still Paying Him: Cowboys
How Much They’re Still Paying Him: $5 million this season
Romo could still be making a lot more had he opted to continue playing this season—if Brock Osweiler got $72 million, imagine what Romo could have gotten?
Well, he probably won’t get to do that this season being that he’s retired. But he will have the benefit of two incomes: his undisclosed CBS salary and the $5 million the Cowboys still owe him. After that, Romo will have to rely solely on his six-to-seven-figure salary at CBS. Boo hoo.
