The Cowboys began informal extension discussions with the representatives for Tony Romo Wednesday.
Romo is currently scheduled to earn $11.5 million in 2013, the final year of his contract. The new deal will reportedly be for three or four years. "We have a great quarterback and he deserves to be paid," VP Stephen Jones said. "Our goal is to not let the quarterback run out of contract." Romo will turn 33 in April, but it's not necessarily a prohibitive age for a quarterback. Peyton Manning will be 37 next month, Tom Brady will be 35 in August and Drew Brees is 34.
