Cowboys' QB turned down more money from Broncos to sign with Dallas.
Mike Shanahan thought he had the quarterback from Eastern Illinois signed with the Broncos after the 2003 draft. He offered more in signing bonus and even played on the quarterback's feelings for the alma mater.
Like Shanahan, Tony Romo was a graduate of Eastern Illinois.
But in the end, Romo decided his chances of making the Cowboys' roster outweighed the opportunity to make more money and play for a two-time Super Bowl winning coach with a shared college experience.
