Dallas Cowboys fans will fear no more that Tony Romo could be headed out of town.

And they also will not have to worry quite as much about a prohibitive salary-cap situation.

That is because Romo and the club came to terms this afternoon on a six-year extension. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports the deal is worth $108 million, meaning it will average $18 million per season, putting Romo not far behind Super Bowl MVP’s Joe Flacco, Drew Brees and Peyton Manning.

Romo’s cap number for this season was $16.8 million and the Cowboys will significantly reduce that figure for 2013 with the new pact, giving them room to operate for more player acquisitions.
