Future Hall of Famer Jason Witten is hanging up his cleats — again — the 17-year vet has decided to call it a career … and he’s doing it as a member of the Dallas Cowboys.
The 38-year-old will go down as one of the greatest tight ends in NFL history … racking up more than 1,200 catches and 13,000 yards, 74 touchdowns and 271 games played … which are all records at the position.
Witten previously retired in 2018 and became the lead analyst for ESPN’s Monday Night Football … before returning to the Cowboys for the 2019 season.
Witten spent the 2020 season with the Las Vegas Raiders, where his production dramatically decreased — starting 7 games, catching 13 balls for 69 yards and 2 TDs.
ESPN reports Witten will sign a 1-day contract to retire as a member of the Cowboys once his Raiders deal expires in March.
Witten finishes his career with 11 Pro Bowls, 5 total All-Pro selections and a Walter Payton Man of the Year award.
No word on whether Witten will get a whole ‘nother diamond football like last time … but who knows when it comes to Jerry Jones.
Congrats on the retirement, Jason!!
