Tony Romo Got a Meager $64.11 Performance Bonus from the Dallas Cowboys

  TONY ROMO struggled with injuries again last year . . . and because of that, and the emergence of DAK PRESCOTT . . . he only ended up playing ONE series for the Dallas Cowboys. But he still qualified for a performance bonus . . . and it was $64.11.  (???) Since 2011, NFL teams are allotted a “performance based pool” of money, which can be distributed based on two factors:  How much the players are already earning in salary, and how much they played.

AP source: Cowboys to release QB Romo when NFL year begins

BY SCHUYLER DIXON DALLAS (AP) — Tony Romo’s star-crossed career as the starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys will soon be over. A person with knowledge of the decision tells The Associated Press that the Cowboys will release Romo when the NFL year opens on Thursday. The person spoke to the AP on Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the team hasn’t announced a decision on Romo, who will get a chance to pursue a starting job elsewhere. Romo will leave the Cowboys as the franchise leader in yards passing (34,183) and touchdowns (248). But he could never match...

Falcons hire Steve Sarkisian as new offensive coordinator

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — The Atlanta Falcons have hired Steve Sarkisian as their new offensive coordinator. The move was announced Tuesday, less than 24 hours after Kyle Shanahan left to become head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. Sarkisian took over as Alabama’s offensive coordinator in the national championship game, but his tenure with the Crimson Tide stunningly lasted only one contest. He is a former head coach at Washington and Southern Cal. Sarkisian was named Alabama’s offensive coordinator after Lane Kiffin left to become the head coach at Florida Atlantic University. The 42-year-old Sarkisian takes over the...

Coaches, QBs lapped by Brady/Belichick marvel at success

HOUSTON (AP) — Marv Levy, the only coach in NFL history to take a team to four consecutive Super Bowls, looks at what Bill Belichick and Tom Brady have done together with the New England Patriots and marvels. “Really, it is remarkable that they keep going back, and they maintain the focus and dedication necessary to do it,” the former Buffalo Bills coach said. “It just becomes, quote, old hat. It’s just almost unfathomable what they’ve accomplished. So they sure do deserve great credit, and it shows you that the draft isn’t perfect. Sixth-rounder at quarterback. Many will rate...

The good, bad and weird of the NFL season

The Associated Press will hand out its individual NFL awards on the night before the Super Bowl in Houston. Until then, here are some off-the-beaten track honors to consider. BEST GAME: The beginning of the end for the defending champions came in Week 12 in a frigid classic. The Broncos blew an eight-point lead over Kansas City and lost 30- 27 when Cairo Santos banked a field goal as overtime expired. Denver’s Brandon McManus hooked a 62-yard attempt with a minute left in OT. Earlier, Trevor Siemian threw a 76-yard touchdown pass to Bennie Fowler that made it 24-16,...

"If we get a win, we win the division and get a home playoff game," said Stafford, who lost Monday night on the same field where he dropped to 0-2 in the playoffs with a wild-card loss two...

Did the Giants expose the Cowboys in sweep of Dallas?

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Maybe instead of looking at what the Cowboys have been doing to the rest of the league, NFL teams should look at what the Giants did to the Cowboys this season. And who knows, maybe what New York could do again should they meet in the playoffs. Dallas’ offense ripped through nearly every opponent during an 11-game winning streak that began after a 20-19 home loss to New York in the season opener. That string ended under the powerful pressure the Giants applied on defense Sunday night: a strong pass rush; sticky coverage of...
