So Many Lap Dances: Tony Romo Signs $67M Contract

by at . Comments

Having already inched his way toward elite celebrity and football status by dating Carrie Underwood and winning 12 of his first 17 starts, Tony Romo was rewarded with a six-year, $67 million contract by the Dallas Cowboys.

Tony Romo is now signed through 2013, which means he'll be the face of the NFL franchise - and hopefully celebrity news publications - in the years to come.

"The best feeling by far is to know that the organization, our coaches and everyone say, 'Hey, you're our guy,"' Tony Romo said. "That means more to me than the money ever could. I'm just excited to be here for a long time."

Tony Romo: $67 million richer and a growing celebrity.

With a 5-1 start to his career after he burst into the lineup in October 2006, Romo mania ensued. It's still going strong, too, with Dallas 6-1, tied for tops in the NFC, and Tony leading the conference in yards passing and TD passes.

Another amazing part of Tony Romo's rapid rise is some of the fame he's managed to build outside of football. It started with supposed interest from actress Jessica Simpson, then grew with him dating country singer Carrie Underwood.

Romo was back in the celebrity gossip magazines this week for an encounter with Britney Spears over the weekend, in which he received a sexy lap dance from the deranged singer, according to metrosexual eyewitness Ryan Seacrest.

One wonders how many celebrities Romo will bag by the end of his contract. It certainly won't hurt the cause. No wonder Entertainment Tonight and other celebrity news outlets had reporters at this press conference.
