Taxman Tackles Highest Paid Football Player

After signing a six-year, $108 million extension with the Cowboys, Tony Romo became the fifth highest paid player in the NFL. That is until you figure in one very important fact: Tony plays for the Dallas Cowboys. And in Texas, there’s no state tax. So when you factor in income after taxes, Tony leapfrogs over Calvin Johnson, Peyton Manning, Drew Brees and Joe Flacco to be the highest paid player in the NFL.

Of course even a Flat Tax likely won’t buy the 8-8 Cowboys a playoff win.
