Some fans love him and some fans don’t, but Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is among the most marketable players in football, according to a recent ranking by the Sports Business Journal.
The list is topped by Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who narrowly beat out New England Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady for the top spot. (though, it’s noted in the article on the Sports Business Daily’s website that Rodgers’ name appeared on more ballots than Brady’s.) Peyton Manning, who missed the entire 2011 season with neck issues, came in third.
Romo came in at tenth on the survey, tied with Baltimore Ravens’ linebacker Ray Lewis--meaning that, despite the numerous Romo Haters out there (and there are plenty), the Cowboys’ quarterback has enough supporters to make him eminently marketable to fans.
