    Liz Mullen of SportsBusiness Journal reported earlier this week that Romo could be signing a five-year, $10-million deal with Starter. Such terms would make Romo the highest-paid footwear and apparel endorser in the NFL, doubling Reggie Bushs five-year, $5 million contract with Adidas.

    I'm with him :)

    I don't see why Romo should get a shoe deal, it's not like he is any kind of scrambler. I can see why Bush has one as he does (or did) some pretty amazing stuff with his feet. But Romo? He had that one run off a bad snap. That's it.

    He's known for being more mobile than Bledsoe. I'm not saying he is a bad scrambler, I'm just saying he's not that good.

    I remember those, too. Someone bought me a Steelers one once when I was five and dumb enough to wear it. :icon_redface:

    Guys, guys. Quit picking on Tony. I'm sure the shoes look absolutely fab-u-lous.

    Well hopefully just like the Starter Brand he is endorsing, his career will be hot for 2 years and then fizzle to the point where no one remembers it.

    I didn't know Starter still made stuff or that they were still endorsing. Back in the day however, they ruled the apparel industry for a couple years minimum.
