  • 457503890 8 ESPN Says Jason Witten Is Retiring For New Gig

There are few players who could provide the excellence Witten supplied for 15 years.

The thought of having to only watch National Football League 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?

A team source said the Cowboys were aware of the possibility, but Witten was not making a final decision until he met with Jones. They released Bryant, the franchise leader in touchdown catches, in a cost-cutting move this month. "He also told me he is going to need some more time for consideration, at least through the weekend".

To play against the Detroit Lions on October 19, 2003, Witten stuffed rolls of quarters in his sweatpants so he could make his prescribed weight despite not being able to eat solid food.

According to NFL.com, his career receptions rank fourth 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).

The news on the second day of the draft could affect Dallas' plans just a week after Witten suggested he might play until he was 40 and meant to return this coming season.

Lance Stroll and Sergey Sirotkin impressed in 11th and 12th for Williams , who also produced their best performance of the season. Kimi Raikkonen was on course to snatch pole from his teammate only to make a mistake at the final corner of his lap.

Witten, who turns 36 in May, was named the Walter Payton Man of the Year in 2012.

Witten was drafted by the Cowboys in the third round of the 2003 NFL Draft after a college career at Tennessee. The first round of the draft combined for 11.2 million viewers through broadcasts on Fox, ESPN, ESPN2 and the NFL Network, a 22-percent increase over past year. He has appeared in 239 games with 229 starts, totaling 1,152 catches for 12,448 yards, and 68 touchdowns.

"I've talked to Jason several times this week". The foundation was inspired by his family's experience growing up with domestic violence.

"First class, Grade A player, awesome person, as a player, unbelievable", Gilbert Guerrero said.

"I think my best thing I would say in general is that today we have given him protection and blocking".
