Jason Witten Joins Monday Night Football Crew After 15 NFL Seasons

Stats on stats Looking back at Jason Witten's career numbers

Witten will call his first Cowboys game on November 5 when Dallas hosts the Tennessee Titans at AT&T Stadium.

At the end of the press conference, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones presented an incredible retirement gift: a blinged-out Dallas Cowboys football. Former Cowboys quarterback Don Meredith was an original member of the Monday Night Football broadcast team in 1970. Witten will be paired with new play-by-play announcer Joe Tessitore.

He retires as the Cowboys all-time leader in receptions and receiving yards.

After all of this, the Cowboys should let Dez Bryant go

For Witten, the opportunity to follow in those footsteps became an easier decision than chasing a Super Bowl for another season.

"I never wanted this day to come".

"The hardest part of this decision was knowing that I would never be able to hand you that Lombardi Trophy", Witten said during his 15-minute speech Thursday. But his CV feels incomplete without an appearance in the big game, or even the game that comes before it. In the meantime, let's celebrate Witten-the player and person.

Prank likely behind odd discovery of vehicle dangling from bridge near DVP
It's now being treated as a mischief investigation, and Sidhu said police believe it was intended as some sort of prank. Then they sent out another tweet that put police back at square one: There was "no movie shoot authorized".

As he steps away, Witten's legacy with the team is secure.

Witten said he chose to take the ESPN job because it was too good to pass up. We're with you as a team. Really, I did not think that was going to be my last game in Philadelphia [on December 31]. I think without a doubt I'd put him in the top three, top four tight ends. "He really was that guy".

One of the greatest tight ends in National Football League history officially chose to call it quits on Thursday as Jason Witten finally announced his retirement. He leaves as the Cowboys' all-time leader in games played, consecutive games played, starts, catches and receiving yards, according to ESPN. Watching that piece make it glaringly obvious why he would want to take the money and sprint to TV.

Gerrard stages further talks with Rangers
He has said that he spoke to him over the weekend, and his former teammate was happy with how the discussions with Rangers went. Brendan Rodgers' team are vastly superior to Rangers and are on a much stronger financial footing.

As illustrated in that one play of thousands in his career, Witten would stop at nothing to further advance the Cowboys.

During the 2018 NFL Draft, the Cowboys picked up Stanford tight end Dalton Schultz in the fourth round. "But we're with you ... you're an inspiration to me and everybody that's ever said they were a Dallas Cowboy". We're going to act on it. Now that it's official, it's time to reflect and line him up for future recognition.

Evidently, he has made up his mind.

Apple Siri Responds With A Bad Word For The Word Mother
Apple has not responded as yet to the the discovery and you can be assured that the company will fix this once it hears of it. That query has since been fixed, but the issue still remains when it's asked to "define the word mother".
