Romo Gets One-Year Extension
The Dallas Cowboys signed backup quarterback Tony Romo on Thursday to a one-year contract extension running through the 2007 season. He would have been eligible for unrestricted free agency after this season.
The deal includes a $2 million signing bonus and a total of $1.9 million in salaries over the next two seasons.
Romo had a strong preseason, producing whispers around the league that he perhaps could take over for starter Drew Bledsoe at some point during the season. He completed 30 of 45 passes for 345 yards in Thursday's preseason finale against the Minnesota Vikings, throwing one touchdown pass but two interceptions.
Romo took over for Bledsoe earlier than expected in the game after Bledsoe was hit in the head, but the injury was not considered serious.
