Romo, a favorite punching bag for frustrated Cowboys fans, earned a $25 million signing bonus for his new contract last season. Some criticized the deal, but Romo will seek to prove he was worth it. His endorsements are modest, and so, like many of the lesser-known quarterbacks who made the list this year due to a signing bonus, don’t expect Romo to appear again next year.
