Romo, Starter Part Ways

Tony Romo has had an endorsement deal with Starter since 2009



    The four-year relationship between Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and the athletic apparel company Starter has come to an end, according to ESPN Dallas.

    Romo has had the endorsement deal with Starter since back in 2009, and after that, he was rarely seen without his backward Starter ball cap--unless it was during a game, of course, because the NFL doesn’t like anything but NFL licensed apparel on its sidelined.

    According to an unnamed source in contact with ESPN Dallas, Romo had a slew of offers from other apparel companies this offseason, but he decided not to pursue a new endorsement deal as he attempted to recover from surgery to remove a non-cancerous cyst from his back.

    In addition to that, Romo had been asked to take greater ownership of the offense after signing a six-year, $108 million extension earlier this offseason. So yeah, he was pretty busy.
