Dallas Cowboys legend Jason Witten makes shock move

Another Cowboys player is coming to TV: Jason Witten will join ESPN's 'Monday Night Football'

Witten, who missed only one game in his career, shared what it takes for him to recover from one game and prepare to play the next in a feature with SI.com's Peter King last season.

"I never wanted this day to come".

Jones couldn't be more excited about Witten's next chapter, either.

"There's an old saying in pro football, the circus doesn't stay in town forever", Witten said. "It's time to pass the torch to the next generation". If he'd eventually bring some of that candor to a TV broadcast booth, that would actually make Warner - who has far more TV experience than Witten and far more experience calling games as a radio analyst for Westwood One - the better choice. "That's John Madden's chair.

He emptied the bucket here", Jones said, responding to a question about that missing Super Bowl after speeches by all three on stage: Witten, Jones and coach Jason Garrett.

At 2:35 p.m. on Thursday, the words officially came from Jason Witten's mouth. "The number of times I told young players, veteran players, every play, 'Watch No. 82, do it like he does it.' It was incredible".

Jerry Jones was aware of the possibility Witten could be done playing before Friday's report. "These are all real".

His retirement ceremony, with Prescott and star running back Ezekiel Elliott watching from the same row, came not far from a huge picture of Witten's signature moment - a 2007 game when he ran almost 30 yards and was tackled without a helmet after it was knocked off.

Dak Prescott and Jason Witten didn't get to spend a ton of time together as teammates.

Let's zoom in on that thing and try and count all the diamonds on it.

Through his own charitable foundation, Jason Witten's SCORE Foundation, Witten has launched numerous outreach programs and funded several new building projects in Texas and his native Tennessee.

It's no surprise that Jones got Witten an expensive retirement gift, and that's because the tight end has been a star in the organization for the past 15 years. We do good, upright things, because we want to leave a positive legacy in our wake.

The Dallas Morning News reported that ESPN's offer is for $4 million to $4.5 million per year. "But we're with you ... you're an inspiration to me and everybody that's ever said they were a Dallas Cowboy". "He's done really everything a Cowboy could do that you guys see, but also behind closed doors just within the facility and with the team". "He knows we're a much better football team with him than without him".
