  • Cowboys Legend Jason Witten Retiring To Join ‘Monday Night Football’ Broadcast Booth

ESPN reports that Jason Witten plans to retire after 15 seasons to join the network's "Monday Night Football" team as an analyst. He has not made any decisions that are definite at this time. Jones said he and Witten had "great discussions" and said no official decision had been made.

"I've talked to Jason several times this week".

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's hard to find receiving help for Dak Prescott on Dallas's depth chart.

FRISCO, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys drafted a receiver after dumping Dez Bryant. Witten had 19 games in his career with at least nine catches, including an 18-catch, 167-yard effort against the New York Giants on October 28, 2012.




"Gallup I think can play immediately, especially with the way we're approaching our receiving corps, which is going to involve a lot of receivers". Terrance Williams, Cole Beasley and newly acquired Allen Hurns are the top wideouts on today's Dallas Cowboys. The latter two have no career stats. "You go find two guys that fit what we're doing, that fit that we're moving forward as an offense". A person familiar with the trade said the 49ers dealt Brown and the 143rd overall draft pick to New England for the 95th overall pick. With James Hanna's move to the reserve/retired list earlier this month, the Cowboys would be down to Geoff Swaim, Rico Gathers and Blake Jarwin at the tight end position.

Dallas has picks in the middle of the second and third rounds, respectively, before charging up for seven picks in the final four on Saturday.

If Witten leaves Dallas, it's the second straight year that a Cowboys star is retiring to go into broadcasting. With Witten's future in doubt, the Cowboys would be wise to address their pass-catching need in the draft. But unlike Romo, his replacement didn't ultimately force him out.

Witten's 1,152 career receptions rank fourth in National Football League history behind Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice (1,549), tight end Tony Gonzalez (1,325) and Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (1,234).
