Dallas Cowboys, QB Romo sign new deal

A year ago Monday, Tony Romo made the first start of his
NFL career. On Monday, the Dallas Cowboys let it be known
that Romo is the quarterback for now and the future. According
to multiple sources, Romo agreed to one of the richest deals
in team history with a six-year extension worth $67.5 million.
The deal includes $30 million in guaranteed money and an $11.5
million signing bonus. At a radio appearance in Plano on Monday
night, Romo said a deal was not complete but close. Romo's agent,
Ken Kremer, could not be reached for comment. Cowboys executive
vice president Stephen Jones declined to comment. Romo said talks
between his agent and Jones began to heat up last week. "It's
closer than it was," Romo said. "It's neat that the organization
is behind you. That makes it fun." In total money, Romo's deal
is second in team history to the nine-year, $85.5 million deal
Troy Aikman signed in 1998. The money is a staggering figure
for a quarterback who has made just 17 regular season starts.
But in that time, Romo has proved he can shoulder the
responsibility of being the quarterback for America's Team.
Since Aikman retired after the 2000 season, the Cowboys' search
for his replacement has been long and fruitless.


Rams lose another offensive lineman, guard Icognito

St. Louis Rams guard Richie Incognito will likely miss the
rest of the season with a right kneecap injury sustained in
Sunday's loss to the Browns. Coach Scott Linehan also said
Monday that running back Steven Jackson, sidelined by back
spasms in the first half after a strong start, has a bulging
disk. But he said the injury is treatable and was optimistic
Jackson could be back in the lineup without missing a game
after the Rams' bye this weekend. Incognito's injury is
likely to require surgery and could leave the Rams with only
one opening-day starter, Alex Barron, on the offensive line
when they play at New Orleans on Nov. 11. Center Brett Romberg
missed the Browns game with two sprained ankles and could be
back. Tackle Orlando Pace was lost for the season with a
shoulder injury in the opener and guard Mark Setterstrom also
is out for the year with a knee injury. Incognito missed the
first four games with a high ankle sprain sustained in the
preseason. He was hurt in the first quarter Sunday when
Linehan said his kneecap popped in and out on a play when
his leg was in an awkward position. "It's a somewhat lengthy
recovery time," Linehan said.

Petrino, Hall meet to clear air over CBs' critical comments

Atlanta Falcons coach Bobby Petrino met Monday with cornerback
DeAngelo Hall, trying to sort out their differences over the
release of defensive tackle Grady Jackson. Both said they were
ready to move on after getting together privately before practice.
"Obviously, you don't like to see some of those comments made,"
Petrino said. "I understand part of it, I guess. I certainly had
a meeting with DeAngelo and we'll put it behind us and move on."
Hall openly questioned the direction of the Falcons (1-6) after
Jackson was released last week, despite being one of the team's
most effective linemen. A two-time Pro Bowler, Hall already was
fined $100,000 this season for a sideline shouting match with
Petrino during a game against Carolina. He wasn't disciplined
for his criticism of Jackson's release, which he said made it
look as though the team had given up on this season and already
was looking ahead to 2008. Hall said he was ready to put the
incident behind him. "Yeah, that's the game plan," he said.
Hall would not discuss specifics of the meeting with Petrino
and vowed to speak to the media only after games for the rest
of the season. To fill Jackson's spot on the 53-man roster,
the Falcons signed cornerback Brent Grimes off the practice
roster. Defensive end Kevin Huntley was added to the practice
squad.

Favre's TD bomb on first play of OT stuns Broncos

Brett Favre's 82-yard touchdown pass to Greg Jennings on the
first play of overtime lifted the Green Bay Packers to a 19-13
victory against the Denver Broncos on Monday night, further
cementing Favre's legend and delivering no relief to a city
suffering post-World Series blues. Denver quarterback Jay Cutler
engineered an 89-yard drive to the Green Bay 4-yard line in the
last two minutes of regulation, but the Broncos had to settle
for a hurried 21-yard field goal by Jason Elam as time expired
to send the game to overtime. Green Bay moved to 6-1 atop the
NFC North with its first-ever victory in Denver (it had been
0-5 in regular-season games and 0-5 in preseason). Denver fell
to 3-4 in the AFC West a day after the Colorado Rockies were
swept from the Series by the Boston Red Sox. "To be honest with
you, when I let the ball go, I thought it was underthrown," the
38-year-old Favre said of his bomb that ended the second-shortest
overtime (16 seconds) in NFL history. "The ball stayed up in the
air a long time. ... Fortunately for me, it fell in the right
place. We keep finding ways to do it, and we do it together. It
don't get any better than it was at the end of this game." Broncos
coach Mike Shanahan saluted Favre's throw. "It's one of those
plays that has to be perfect," he said. "They were right on the
money." Favre finished 21-for-27 for 331 yards and two TDs and had
a 142.4 passer rating. He also had an earlier 79-yard TD pass to
rookie James Jones. Rookie backup running back Ryan Grant, pressed
into duty when starter DeShawn Wynn injured his shoulder in the
first quarter, sparked the Packers with 104 yards on 22 carries.
It was the first time a Packer has rushed for more than 100 yards
this season. They came in ranked last in rushing (65.7 yards a game).
Favre's first TD pass was his first ever in Denver. The only two
cities where he hasn't thrown a TD pass are Baltimore and Pittsburgh.
"To come in here and win this game, especially with the momentum
swing at the end, it's a credit to our football team," Packers
coach Mike McCarthy said. Denver played without leading rusher
Travis Henry (ribs), but backup Selvin Young ran for 71 yards.
