Jason Witten Ends Broadcasting Career Early And Comes Back To Football

Written by TrevStone

Everyone likes Jason Witten the football player, 99.9% of American’s hated Jason Witten the announcer this past season. And well, after further thoughts, we won’t be listening to Witten in the booth this year, thankfully.

The trusted TE is going to come out of retirement and join back with the Dallas Cowboys.

“The fire inside of me to compete and play this game is just burning too strong,” Witten said in a statement. “This team has a great group of rising young stars, and I want to help them make a run at a championship. This was completely my decision, and I am very comfortable with it. I’m looking forward to getting back in the dirt.”

Witten will enter season No. 16 of his career, playing all 15 previous years with the Cowboys and making 11 Pro Bowls in the process.

He originally finished his career with more than 1,100 receptions, nearly 12,500 receiving yards and played in 239 games a Cowboys franchise record.

Although I’m a Detroit Lions fan, and we play the Cowboys this year; this is still a win for me. Glad I won’t be having to listen to Witten this year. Tony Romo on the other hand? GOAT.

Please replace Witten with Pat McAfee. Yes, I know he is under contract with the WWE, but what a move it would be.
