Mere hours after Tony Romo agreed to an unprecedented six-year, $108 million extension with the Dallas Cowboys back in March, $55 million of which is guaranteed money, former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb expressed some disbelief over the numbers of the deal via Twitter.
“Tony Romo 6 yr 55 million dollar extension. Wow really, with one playoff win. You got to be kidding me,” McNabb tweeted, adding the correct numbers shortly after.
But Romo isn’t losing any sleep over McNabb’s criticism.
“I just don’t think what anybody says has any influence on this football team, and what anybody would say in those situations is they have their own agendas,” Romo said, per the Dallas Morning News. “They have their own lives they have to live. Some people, it’s a positive for them to use certain things and use stuff and talk about it, and that’s good for them, if that helps them get a job or a write up or whatever, that’s a positive for them.
“So I think, go ahead, use that, that’s important for them to get where they’re trying to go. But it’s not important for us, it’s not important to me, it doesn’t make one bit of difference to this football team. This football team knows its job is to get better today. That’s the objective and that’s the approach we take every day.”
It’s worth noting that Romo’s one playoff win came against McNabb’s Eagles back in 2009.
