It seems pretty likely that Tony Romo will end his career with the Dallas Cowboys, after signing a historic six-year, $108 million extension last Friday. As it turn out, that was Romo’s goal in contract talks all along.
"He's always considered himself a Cowboy for life," said R.J. Gonser, Romo's agent, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "He's able to do what a lot of players aren't, and that's finish his career in one spot. He's got that star on his helmet. That's awfully special."
According to Gonser, there was never really any doubt that Romo would return to Dallas, and the quarterback wanted to go ahead and get a deal done before the 2013 season got much closer.
"This deal was never in doubt," Gonser said. "Quite frankly, if it was about leverage and getting more money, we would have waited until we got closer to the season. Tony was not interested in playing this thing out to get a couple more bucks. ...This has never been a concern of his. He's probably as focused as any client I've ever been around. Obviously, money is a part of this business. But he just wants to play ball."
