Less than a Million over what the Ravens are paying for Flacco.
Little over a million over what the Cardinals are paying for Palmer.
1.5 million over what the Falcons are paying for Ryan
3-6 million over what the Giants, Dolphins, Lions, Packers, Chargers and Panthers are paying for their QB's
Why would you allocate that much money to a backup position?
And there is no way Romo is playing the good soldier all next year as a backup, why add that distraction to the locker room?
If Romo stays as a backup I think that means he's admitted to himself that he's too fragile to start anymore and in that case I say retirement is more likely than hanging around as a clipboard holder.
If he's healthy enough in his mind I can't see anyway he doesn't want to go somewhere else and start.
