Cowboys tight end Jason Witten recently said he plans to play until he’s 40. Those plans have quickly changed.

ESPN has announced (essentially) that Witten now plans to retire from the NFL and become “a lead analyst” on Monday Night Football. Witten intends to meet with Cowboys owner/G.M. Jerry Jones before finalizing the decision.

Witten, a future Hall of Famer and 15-year veteran who turns 36 on May 6, joins former teammate Tony Romo with high-profile TV gigs, if Witten takes the job.

The presence of the phrase “a lead analyst” in the de facto announcement suggests that there could be another analyst in the booth, making it potentially a three-person operation. Joe Tessitore is slated to become the play-by-play announcer on Monday night.

Thats one one he's been waiting on... so he should be agreeing to a 151 million 101 mill guaranteed contract shortly.

Maybe Erin will try for double. I really doubt sincerely the Pack  will go for that. Yeah he's valuable, yeah he is underpaid, but the Pack need to pay him. The trouble is the Pack is a corporation not a family owned business. We'll see how this comes out. I'll be watching this.

Too funny, but not surprising:

Josh Rosen gets first team snaps at Cardinals OTAs.  Sam Bradford given a day off and Mike Glennon vomited on the field (he actually did vomit that's not a euphemism for his play)

That boy has pocketed about 22 million dollars over the last year...even if/when he gets cut before the season starts.
