It’s pretty wild how successful Romo has been off of the field. He was a damn good quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys, but he’s become a superstar as commentator.

Now, he’s making more money than the vast majority of players in the NFL do, and he’s not risking his health at all.

It’s also pretty cool to see a guy like Romo succeed in life. You want to see good people go far in life, and he’s always come off a genuinely good person.
