Despite how often Tony Romo has been mentioned by members of the Cowboys staff and in the media, the two sides have yet to begin discussing the terms of a contract extension, according to Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com.
Romo and the Cowboys suspended contract talks during the 2012 season to keep it from becoming a distraction, but they have yet to resume negotiations. Romo is scheduled to earn a base salary of $11.5 million in 2013, the last year of his current contract.

The Cowboys have expressed interest in signing Romo to a new deal and getting it done this offseason. Cowboys president Stephen Jones has said, "Tony is a key piece of what we're about going forward." Jones also said that the Cowboys would like to sign Romo to a new deal so they can continue to address the rest of their salary cap concerns.
Despite his $11.5 salary, Romo's cap hit for the 2013 season under his current contract is $16.8 million. Dallas is nearly $20 million over the cap and must get under by March 12.
