Dallas Cowboys Rumors: Are Cowboys Close to Signing Tony Romo to an Extension?
According to multiple reports, the Dallas Cowboys are bringing in free agent safeties Michael Huff and Will Allen, as well as linebacker Justin Durant, to Valley Ranch this week. While it may not mean the Cowboys will sign any of them, it likely signals the Cowboys are close to signing quarterback Tony Romo to a contract extension.
The Cowboys have only about $100,000 in cap room left and wouldn’t be able to sign any of these players right now so bringing them to Dallas could be a sign the Cowboys are about to open up some cap space. The only way to do that is to sign Romo, or Anthony Spencer, to an extension. All signs are pointing to Romo since the Cowboys have been saying a new deal is close.
You don’t bring in free agents to talk to them without the intention of signing them in the near future. The Cowboys and any player they want to sign could certainly have an agreement in place to be signed in the future but without the ability to sign a player relatively soon, no agreement is safe. It just makes sense to bring in players you would like to sign and have them agree to a contract in the next few days and not months away when the Cowboys will likely have more cap space.
Something is coming in Dallas and it most likely has to do with Tony Romo and a new contract. Love him or hate him Cowboys fans, it looks like he’ll remain a Dallas Cowboy. The only questions are, for how long and how much will it cost?
