Jason Witten informs Cowboys that he will retire

Jason Witten, one of the greatest tight ends in NFL history, is officially calling it quits after a 15-year career with the Dallas Cowboys. While no official statement has been made, ESPN’s Todd Archer reports Witten has “informed Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones and coach Jason Garrett that he will retire.”

Witten is expected to join the ESPN Monday Night Football crew as a lead analyst.

The 35-year-old Witten, walks away from the game as the Cowboy’s as all-time leader in receptions with 1,152, receiving yards with 12,448, consecutive games played and starts. He’s second all-time in receptions by a tight end behind Tony Gonzalez.

Recently released Cowboys reciever Dez Bryant, shared his thoughts on social media, calling Witten one of the greatest ever.

“Goat is his name 🐐 ,” Bryant said on his official Instagram page. “He had to call me for me to believe it. First ballot no question. What a amazing career 82.”

Witten is an 11-time Pro-Bowler and a two-time first-team All-Pro.

The Dallas Cowboys have called 2 p.m. press conference to officially announce Witten’s retirement.
