Dallas Cowboy Jason Witten leaving team for 'Monday Night Football,' report says

ESPN is reporting that Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten plans to retire after 15 seasons and join the network as the lead analyst for its "Monday Night Football" broadcast.

Brown is entering the final year of his contract and San Francisco drafted McGlinchey ninth overall to take his role.

The Cowboys, in short, do not have a replacement for Witten on the roster. Jerry Jones before finalizing the decision.

"He has some things to think about and discuss with his family from a professional perspective", Jones said before the introductory news conference for first-round pick Leighton Vander Esch. "I'll keep the details of those discussions private forever". No decision has been made yet about is future, but it will be interesting to see how he does in the both.

Mortensen's report stated that Witten had all but made up his mind but was giving Jones one last meeting to try to sway him back onto the field for another season. It's clear that this is now Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliot's team. Terrance Williams, Cole Beasley and newly acquired Allen Hurns are the top wideouts on today's Dallas Cowboys. They'll now likely use one of them on a tight end.

With one more season, Witten would be the most tenured Dallas Cowboy of all-time with 16 seasons under his pads. Looks like they might have finally found that ideal fit. 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.
