After weeks of wondering when quarterback Tony Romo will get a new deal, the wondering can cease. Romo and the Cowboys have agreed in principal on a six-year extension worth $67.5 million, which includes just north of $30 million guaranteed, league sources told

The numbers of the deal are based upon the contract Rams quarterback Marc Bulger agreed to in July. Talks between Romo and the team started heating up last week. Cowboys officials met with Romo on Monday to finalize the deal. While Romo may have made more money by waiting until the end of the year, he decided it was a fair deal. He is expected to sign the deal later Monday.
