Expect Cowboys, Tony Romo to have to restructure down the road

There was no doubt the Cowboys were going to get a deal done with Tony Romo before the draft. The Cowboys came into Friday with 24K of salary cap space, which wasn't enough to do any business.

Romo has turned into the Bank of Romo, and expect the team to go back to him multiple times over the next few years to create salary cap space again. The Cowboys are projected to be well over the cap in 2014. Romo held all the cards with the cap space issue and no franchise tag for 2014. Jerry Jones wasn't afraid to use guaranteed money (more than Flacco) to get the deal done.

The reaction of Cowboy fans on my radio show Friday was mixed and laced with more negative than positive comments. It wouldn't surprise me if there's some language in this deal that spikes the deal even higher if Romo gets his team to a Super Bowl
