Jason Witten unretires and signs with Cowboys after disastrous ESPN spell
Although he retired from the NFL last May, the future Hall of Famer is coming back to the Cowboys for what will be his 16th pro season. Witten played 15 years for the Cowboys from , which included 11 Pro Bowls, the most in team history by any offensive player. But after abruptly deciding to hang up the cleats last May and join the broadcast booth of Monday Night Football , Witten has apparently had a change of heart. This was completely my decision, and I am very comfortable with it. While the Cowboys have plenty of young talent and a roster that had eight Pro Bowl selections, there is still a question mark at tight end — a question that has presumably been answered for now. Witten returns to a tight end position that includes Blake Jarwin and Dalton Schultz under contract, along with Rico Gathers. Geoff Swaim, who started all nine of the games he played, is an unrestricted free agent and might not be a top priority to re-sign now that Witten has returned. In fact, drafting a tight end might not be a priority as well, considering the youth and potential of both Jarwin and Schultz, who now get the luxury of learning from one of the best to ever play the position.
It was inevitable that there would be some growing pains over at MNF, as the show replaced the entire booth during the offseason. Meanwhile, play-by-play man Sean McDonough returned to his old gig as a college football announcer. In their stead came Witten and Joe Tessitore.
Even after his initial retirement, Jason Witten has decided to return back to NFL with his previous team. The Elizabethton native would make significant impact for the team, earning big money. He grew up along with elder brothers Ryan and Shawn in Washington D. So, he moved to Elizabethton to live with his grandparents and attended Elizabethton High School there.
