So the Jason Witten Monday Night Football debacle is over.
I love you 82, but it was brutal.
Jason Witten has decided to end his retirement and come back to the NFL for his 16th season.
The “former” Cowboy is a Cowboy once again!

There were rumors during the season that Witten and the Cowboys had mutual interest but those reports were denied from both sides.
Well they can’t deny it any more. The GOAT is back.
I honestly don’t know how to feel. I am extremely excited just because he is one of my favorite players every, but also worried because how much does he have left in the tank? (And Jerry.. Resign Tank!)

However, I do think this will help an offense that was one of the worst in the red zone last year, and even worse in goal to go situations. I also believe it will help Dak overall, help the run blocking as well as helping develop the young TE’s on the roster.

The deal is for 5 million and I can be happy with that. Now let’s go get that trophy you so desperately deserve Witten.
