IRVING, Texas (AP) -Tony Romo didn't have to wait until the offseason to get his big payday from the Dallas Cowboys after all.
Romo has agreed to a six-year, $67 million deal that will be announced Tuesday, according to a person familiar with the deal who requested anonymity because the contact has not been announced.
The contract, which will become effective this week and provides salary cap relief for Dallas, including $30 million in guaranteed money.
Cowboys spokesman Rich Dalrymple said the team would have no announcements Monday night. Other club officials did not immediately return calls.
