Jason Witten is Considering Retirement But It’s Not Official Yet
This morning I read some terrible, and I mean truly awful news:
I was pretty torn up about it and I caught the feels:
I reminisced about the greatest Dallas Cowboy of this millennium, Jason Witten. A former third-round pick out of Tennessee in 2003, Witten is the Dallas Cowboys Franchise leader in catches and yards. He and Tony Gonzalez, a first ballot Hall of Famer, are the only tight ends with at least 1,000 catches and 10,000 yards. With one more season, Witten would be the most tenured Dallas Cowboy of all-time with 16 seasons under his pads.
The thought of having to only watch NFL games with Dallas Cowboy broadcasters was entertaining with Troy Aikman at Fox, Tony Romo at CBS and now Jason Witten at ESPN, but I couldn't wrap my head around the fact that the tight end position would look very bleak without Jason Witten and he didn't tell anyone until today? Day 2 of the NFL Draft?
That's when I saw that Jason Witten and Jerry Jones were scheduled to meet this afternoon and I saw a glimmer of hope. Maybe Mort has lost his edge. The Mort Report isn't quite as shiny as it used to be.
Jerry Jones spoke about the conversation he and Jason Witten shared this afternoon.
It's not exactly a denial that Jason Witten is indeed retiring but it isn't a rebuttal either.
Time will tell but Jason Witten will probably officially retire next week, but I won't believe it until I see Jason Witten say it.
It will be a very sad day for the Dallas Cowboys and the greatest Cowboy to never win a Super Bowl.
