Romo looking for new contract

Says he would like to get it done before the season starts - doesn't seem too concerned about it:

Cowboys' Romo hopes for new contract

Quarterback says he'd like to reach deal before season starts

IRVING – The Cowboys' regular season does not start until Sept. 9, but quarterback Tony Romo hopes to have a new contract completed by the time he attempts his first pass against the New York Giants.

"I'd definitely like it before the season began, but you never know how these things go," he said. "I know the Jones family. They know me. We'll come to a conclusion."

Speaking at the Dallas All Sports Assocation's Hall of Fame Luncheon at Maggiano's in Northpark Center on Monday, Romo said the Cowboys and his agent have discussed a new deal. Romo is entering the last year of his contract and will make $1.5 million this season.

Because Romo has started only 11 games, including one in the playoffs, finding a compromise might take some time. If they do not reach a deal, the Cowboys could place the franchise tag on Romo, which would pay him the average salary of the five highest-paid quarterbacks in the league. However, owner and general manager Jerry Jones has said he is optimistic a deal can be reached.

"I don't think about that stuff," Romo said. "Whenever they start talking [more], it'll play itself out the way it should. Whatever's fair is fair."

I don't see this becoming a issue at all really. He will be signed and ready to go before
the season.

Think they want to work on his FG holds before offering that deal??

He doesn't deserve it. Guaranteed if he gets one, he will be a huge disappointment.

Make him prove it. Tommy Maddox wanted one with the Steelers after his 1 average-above average year but the Steelers wouldn't give him one. Glad they didn't.

Seems kind of fishy to me. Maybe he thinks that 6 game run he had last season is worthy of a franchise tag salary; I want to see him for atleast half of the season before he gets signed to a fat extension. Dallas definitely doesn't need another Bledsoe situation unfolding.

Exactly. Let him finish out his contract this year, and if he proves himself by repeating his performance level from last year, ink him to a long term deal for 7 years, franchise tag him if necessary to buy time to get the deal done.

If you read the quotes, he isn't pushing for a contract or anything. He said he would like one done before the season (duh, who wouldn't) :-B

He isn't threatening to hold out or anything like that but, when you are signed through the end of the 2007 season and say that you would like to sign an extension before the 2007 season starts, I'd say that's pushing for a new deal.
