Jason Witten
DAL | TE
Officially moving to broadcast booth
Witten has informed the Cowboys he will retire and join ESPN as an analyst for Monday Night Football, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Rumors of Witten's retirement first surfaced around draft time, but he evidently needed more time to consider the decision. After discussing the matter with his family and meeting with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, Witten ultimately determined the opportunity with ESPN was too good to pass up. The soon-to-be 36-year-old finishes his career as the Dallas franchise leader in receptions (1,152) and receiving yards (12,448). Per the Dallas News, the team's current replacement options at the tight end position include Dalton Schultz, Geoff Swaim, Blake Jarwin and Rico Gathers, with veterans like Antonio Gates, Marcedes Lewis, Julius Thomas and Brent Celek all still available as free agents.
