Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo wound up earning an extra $64.11 for the 2016 season. According to Dan Hanzus of NFL.com, that was the amount of pay Romo received under the league’s performance-based pay system for the one drive he played in Week 17.
Romo was under center briefly, completing three-of-four passes for 29 yards and a touchdown pass to Dez Bryant in the Cowboys’ final game against Philadelphia.
He is slightly more than $64 richer for his valiant efforts. It was likely the last official snap Romo will see with his current team.
He is still with the Cowboys. But many reports indicate that the veteran quarterback’s days could be numbered. A release or trade seems highly likely in the near future. There’s also the chance Romo decides to retire and give up playing pro football altogether.
If that is the case, Romo’s last $64.11 drive would have marked his final in the league.
