With the Dallas Cowboys now $21 million over the current salary cap, they would be smart to give quarterback Tony Romo a cap-friendly contract extension, per ESPN’s Ed Werder.
Here's why Tony Romo has leverage. Cowboys $21M over cap. That's with Romo counting $16.8M. Cap-friendly deal with QB solves problems

Werder doesn’t believe Cowboys owner Jerry Jones will let Romo play out the final year of his contract.
Nothing yet between Tony Romo and Cowboys. But no way Jerry makes QB uncomfortable by playing out deal. That would make JJ uncomfortable

I think Romo will have a contract extension before the 2013 regular season begins.
