ESPN is getting ready to make Tony Romo the highest-paid sportscaster in television history, according to a report Sunday by Front Office Sports' Michael McCarthy. The reported multi-year deal could pay Romo, who is currently with CBS, between $10-$14 million annually while installing him as analyst on Monday Night Football, succeeding Booger McFarland, according to McCarthy. Additionally, Romo could potentially lead ESPN's NFL coverage if parent company Disney acquires an NFL game package from Fox Sports, CBS Sports or NBC Sports in the next round of negotiations in 2020-2021. The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback becomes a broadcasting free agent this offseason.
