Cowboys’ Jason Witten will play elsewhere if he continues NFL career
Jason Witten is still undecided about his future with the Dallas Cowboys, but the organization may make the choice for him. As Todd Archer of ESPN broke down what could happen this offseason, he suspects that Witten will play elsewhere in 2020 if he continues his NFL career.
At the conclusion of the 2017 season, Jason Witten chose to retire from the NFL after 15 seasons with the Cowboys. After spending a year in the booth on Monday Night Football, Witten unretired and returned to Dallas to play in 2019.
Even though Jason Witten was out of football for a year, he started at tight end in 2019 for the Cowboys. The veteran tight end would haul in 63 receptions for 529 yards and four touchdowns.
With the Cowboys failing to reach the playoffs this season, many believed that Jason Witten would decide to retire again. However, the reliable pass-catcher is still mulling his options if he were to return for another season.
In the event that Jason Witten does choose to play in 2020, it could be for a team outside of Dallas. Over the course of the offseason, the Cowboys have completely reset their coaching staff. In particular, the Cowboys parted ways with Jason Garrett and chose to hire Mike McCarthy as his replacement.
Since McCarthy is leading the charge now, he wants the build the roster to his liking. Also, Jason Witten is will be turning 38-years-old in May and isn’t part of the future for Dallas. Regardless of what Witten intends to do next season, it likely won’t involve a star on his helmet.
