Jason Witten Coming Out Of Retirement To Play For Cowboys

Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News reported Witten's contract with the Cowboys is for one year and $5m.

After one season in the broadcast booth for ESPN's Monday Night Football, Jason Witten is heading back to the field for the Dallas Cowboys.

Witten initally retired following the 2017 season.

While that may still be an issue with the Hall of Famer, 36, back on the roster, Witten should, at worst, be a security blanket for young quarterback Dak Prescott. The next season will be his 16th in the NFL.

The return of Witten should help the Cowboys improve on third downs. His reputation grew further during the AFC championship game in January. Most notably, Witten was grilled for saying Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers pulled "another rabbit out of his head" with a tying touchdown pass late in a 33-30 overtime win against San Francisco.

Although the leading receiver in the history of the franchise spent nearly an entire year away from football, his playing style should allow him to transition back into the offense smoothly. In announcing his unexpected return to the Cowboys on Thursday, the tight end said the move was "completely my decision". Philadelphia's Zach Ertz topped that with 116 this past season.

Witten's 1,152 career receptions rank fourth in National Football League history and trail only Tony Gonzalez among tight ends. Even if that's the case, network executives should be celebrating the opportunity for a MNF do-over-and consider Witten's case as an all-too-familiar cautionary tale.
