  • Cowboys' Jason Witten ponders retirement, Monday Night Football analyst job

ESPN has reported that Witten plans to retire and become the lead analyst for "Monday Night Football".

Witten met with Jones on Friday but didn't make a firm decision, according to The Dallas Morning News' Brandon George. Jones added Witten wanted to take at least through the weekend to evaluate things.

This will be the second straight year that a Dallas Cowboy great is hanging up the cleats and taking their talents to the broadcast booth. "We don't think we're going into a season without a good tight end". He's the franchise's all-time leader in receptions with 1,152 - 53 percent more than second-place Michael Irvin - and receiving yards with 12,448.

Witten has the fourth-most receptions in National Football League history, behind Jerry Rice, Tony Gonzalez and Larry Fitzgerald, and is only the second tight end in history to have more than 12,000 receiving yards, trailing Gonzalez (15,127) in that category.

Even though he was still active, the team paid tribute to him in its new practice facility with a huge picture of Witten running down the field against Philadelphia in 2007 without his helmet, which was knocked off on a hit as he stayed on his feet and kept going for nearly 30 yards. The decision to retire is a reversal for Witten, who previously said he would return to the Cowboys for the 2018 season. Fox's lead analyst is Troy Aikman.

A third-round draft choice out of the University of Tennessee in 2003, Witten made 11 Pro Bowl appearances as a member of the Cowboys.

The NFL says Thursday's first round of the draft had the second-largest viewership ever for an opening night. The Cowboys signed Romo, an undrafted free agent out of Eastern Illinois, that same year.

"Since we arrived a year ago, Jaquiski has impressed us with his play, his work ethic and the kind of teammate he is", 49ers general manager John Lynch said.
