Either Travis Johnson is jealous of Tony Romo's big paycheck, or maybe he just doesn't like the guy, but the former Houston lineman had some harsh words Dallas Cowboys quarterback.
"He is a thief," Johnson said of Romo. "They need to bring him up on federal charges."
Romo is now the highest-paid player in Cowboys history after signing a $108 million, six-year contract extension in March, a figure Johnson said is far more than Romo is worth.
“Tony Romo has not earned a dollar he’s been given in this league,” Johnson said.
“When Tony Romo got to Dallas he had everything around him and is a loser,” Johnson said. “Tony Romo was given everything he has gotten. At one time he had five Pro Bowlers on the offensive line. They have no passing game, so nobody’s worried about the run.”
Johnson suggested Romo would be the death of the Cowboys and is incapable of leading the team to Superbowl victory.
"I’ll tell you right now, if a man robs you with no ski mask on, he’s going to kill you," he said. "That’s exactly what he’s doing, he’s killing the franchise. He’s not worried about witnesses at all. He’s killing the franchise right now. There’s 75,000 witnesses and nobody’s going to testify against him.”
Romo, who signed with the Dallas as a rookie in 2003, has a 55-38 record as Cowboys' starter.
