Jason Witten to Leave Cowboys for ESPN

After all of this, the Cowboys should let Dez Bryant go

Witten, who turns 36 on Sunday, liked to do his talking on the field.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said that Witten has set an example for all past, current and future Dallas players.

The losses for the Dallas offense continue this offseason, as 15-year veteran Jason Witten announced his retirement.

Witten, an 11-time Pro Bowl selection at tight end, finishes his career as the fourth-leading receiver in National Football League history (1,152 receptions), trailing only Jerry Rice, fellow tight end Tony Gonzalez, and Larry Fitzgerald. He ranks fourth in receptions all time behind only Jerry Rice, Tony Gonzalez and Larry Fitzgerald.

Jason Witten is retiring after 15 years with the Dallas Cowboys, choosing the TV booth just as friend and longtime teammate Tony Romo did a year ago. "He knows we're a much better football team with him than without him". "Many times over the years I'd wake up and jump out of bed and catch myself saying "how lucky am I" to be able to play the game of football for the Dallas Cowboys".

Another network made what was termed an "interesting" offer that would allow him to keep playing and potentially walk away in 2019, according to a source. He's also third in receiving touchdowns (68) in Dallas and now sits fourth in the entire league in total catches. Head coach Jason Garrett got choked up delivering a line about Witten's selflessness.

While Witten is the only Dallas player with 1,000 catches (1,152), his career was defined more by durability and toughness than flashy stats. "I never wanted this day to come. Other players might have been more talented, but no one was going to outwork me".

It's tough to compare Witten to anyone else who got into the Hall of Fame on the first ballot, even in his own organization. Among the tight ends left behind, only one has a catch in a regular-season game: Geoff Swaim with nine over three seasons. In the meantime, the Cowboys are coming off a disappointing 9-7 season. His 63 receptions and 560 receiving yards last season were each the second-fewest of his career. Dallas drafted Stanford's Dalton Schultz in the fourth round last week.
