IRVING, Texas -- Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys have agreed on a six-year contract extension worth $108 million, with about half of it guaranteed.

The agreement was reported on the team's website Friday. The deal will lower Romo's salary cap number of $16.8 million for 2013, giving the team more room to sign free agents and draft picks.

Romo, who turns 33 next month and was entering the final year of his contract, gets $55 million guaranteed and could be with Dallas through 2019. Super Bowl winner Joe Flacco got $52 million guaranteed in the six-year, $120.6 million contract he signed with Baltimore earlier this month.

Romo is the franchise leader in touchdown passes but has just one playoff win in six full seasons as the starter.

Redskins re-sign Fred Davis
WASHINGTON -- Tight end Fred Davis has re-signed with the Washington Redskins.

The team announced the deal Friday.

A person familiar with the agreement says Davis received a one-year contract after exploring options with the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team did not announce terms of the deal.

Davis might have been one of the most coveted tight ends on the free agent market if he were healthy, but he's recovering from a torn left Achilles suffered in a loss to the New York Giants in October.

He had 24 catches for 325 yards in seven games last year. The 2008 second-round pick has 155 receptions for 1,973 yards and 12 touchdowns in five Redskins seasons.
