Romo Was Almost A Bronco

On draft day Broncos head coach and Eastern Illinois Alum, Mike Shanahan called EIU’s Tony Romo and offered him 20-grand to sign.

Romo, an admitted John Elway and Bronco fan, decided to sign a free agent deal with fellow EIU alum, Sean Payton and the Cowboys for only 10K.

“It’s never been about money,” said Romo, “The thing with me is, it’s just about playing the game and having fun doing it. This is just a good situation. Denver was, too. It really came down to Denver and Dallas. I think I made the right choice right now. We’ll see.”

Romo told the story at his locker today after the morning practice. He and Shanahan had a chance to talk during the scrimmage.

Jerry Jones, almost lost Romo over a measly 10G’s. Jones got lucky.
