Jason Witten Will Return to Play for Cowboys in 2019

Jason Witten Will Return to Play for Cowboys in 2019

The Dallas Cowboys broke arguably the most eye-opening news of the 2019 NFL offseason to this point. On Thursday afternoon, amid the drama of the NFL Scouting Combine and chatter surrounding the draft, it was revealed that legendary tight end Jason Witten would return to the gridiron.

As the team revealed, Witten will end his retirement and come back for season No. 16 of his NFL career, re-joining the Cowboys in the process. The 36-year-old issued a statement on his return, citing that the “fire” to return to the game is “just burning too strong.”

“The fire inside of me to compete and play this game is just burning too strong,” Witten said in a statement. “This team has a great group of rising young stars, and I want to help them make a run at a championship. This was completely my decision, and I am very comfortable with it. I’m looking forward to getting back in the dirt.”

Witten will enter season No. 16 of his career, playing all 15 previous years with the Cowboys and making 11 Pro Bowls in the process. He put together one of the most impressive resumes of a tight end in history while proving to be a dominant and reliable option for his quarterbacks.
