Tony Romo, Starter split ties

OXNARD, Calif. – Tony Romo is a free agent.

While he signed a six-year extension with the Cowboys in the offseason worth $108 million, the Dallas Cowboys quarterback no longer has an endorsement with Starter and will enter the season without an agreement with any apparel company.

According to a source close to Romo, he had multiple offers from companies but wanted to spend the offseason focusing on his rehab from surgery to remove a cyst on his back and work with the offensive coaches instead of on an endorsement deal.

Romo had been a national spokesman for Starter since 2009.

Romo has worn Nike cleats for most of training camp and is expected to wear them in Friday’s preseason game at Oakland.
