Tony Romo has been a seamless transition from the grill to the broadcast booth, a transition that has largely paid off for the former Cowboys quarterback.
Romo – who retired from Dallas in April 2017 before joining CBS as a senior color analyst the following season – quickly discovered he had a knack for in-game analysis. He won praise for his appeals, not only for the energy he provides alongside playing man Jim Nantz, but also because of his knowledge of the game, thanks to his 14-year NFL career.
Romo’s knack for breaking up offensive lineups and predicting games before shooting quickly made him one of the hottest products in the broadcast industry, something CBS was apparently aware of when it made him. highest-paid NFL analyst in history earlier this year.
Here’s a breakdown of Romo’s contract, annual salary, and net worth after signing his massive CBS contract:
Tony Romo’s net worth in 2020
Romo is worth $ 70 million, through Celebrity Net Worth. That said, he’s not entirely sure what Romo’s real net worth is. He earned over $ 127 million playing in the NFL and has received approvals from Corona, Starter, Pizza Hut, DIRECTV, Panini, Topps and Under Armor. But he’s also a well-known philanthropist, working with several charities over the years.
What is Tony Romo’s annual salary?
CBS extended his contract with Romo in February, offering him $ 17 million per year (by Andrew Marchand from the New York Post). Merchant later clarified his report, saying the deal is worth it $ 17.5 per year – or $ 18 million if we consider “all the benefits”. This deal is worth more, each year, than his entire recruiting contract at CBS: $ 10 million over three years.
Romo didn’t just break a personal best by signing his new contract. Through Trader, the former record holder for an analyst’s annual salary was John Madden, who had made $ 8 million a year in the early 2000s, long after becoming a broadcast star. Even taking inflation into account, Madden’s deal would have been worth $ 14 million a year in 2020.
Tony Romo contract details
Marchand reported that Romo’s deal would run over 10 years, giving him $ 175 million to $ 180 million. however, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that CBS has locked Romo down for only three years and that any extension depends on whether the NFL will extend its rights deal with CBS (the current deal is on lock until 2022). If that happens, CBS would add another seven years to Romo’s contract – even if the NFL rights deal is shorter.

Romo is set to earn over $ 1 million for each of his 16 regular season games in 2020: $ 1.09 million by diffusion. Extrapolated to include all four of CBS’s post-season broadcasts, then Romo’s deal is worth $ 875,000 per game called.
