All- Pro TE Jason Witten Retires Again
(AP) — Tight end Jason Witten says he is retiring again, apparently for good this time.
Witten told ESPN on Wednesday that he was walking away “knowing that for 17 seasons I gave it my absolute all.” He retired the first time after the 2017 season with Dallas to become an analyst for ESPN’s “Monday Night Football,” but he returned to the Cowboys for a team-record 16th season.
The 11-time Pro Bowler joined several former Dallas teammates with the Raiders last year and had career lows with 13 catches for 69 yards.
Witten ended his career fourth overall on the NFL career list and second among tight ends with 1,228 catches. Tony Gonzalez is the lone tight end with more receptions and yards receiving.
