Former NFL star Tony Romo faces scrutiny over Bills-Bengals calls

Tony Romo was once hailed as the second best in sports broadcasting when he left the Dallas Cowboys to join the CBS booth with Jim Nantz to call the best plays week after week.

On Sunday, NFL fans appeared to have had enough of the former quarterback as he joined Nantz in the stands for the divisional game between the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals. Fans pointed out some of the quizzical statements Romo made during the game.

Romo became a color commentator for the CBS games after the 2016 season.

In 2020, Romo reportedly renewed his deal with CBS for $17 million per year. It was a three-year deal but could grow to a 10-year deal, ESPN reported. The increase this year is reportedly attributed to whether the NFL and CBS continue their rights deal.
