$17m per year
CBS will retain rights. They just lost SEC rights and your not going to pay $17m even for 3 years if you don’t intend to extend. Now that said I think it’s 50/50 if they retain Thursday package.CBS is giving Tony Romo a firm three-year deal to remain at the network, but it could grow to a 10-year deal, per sources. If the NFL extends its rights deal with CBS, Romo’s deal extends by seven additional years, even if the new rights deal is for a term shorter than seven.
Wow I the 17 million a year is for every year of the contract he would have a 170 million dollar deal that's insane for a TV guy.
