Jason Witten to Monday Night Football is reportedly a done deal

Another Cowboys player is coming to TV: Jason Witten will join ESPN's 'Monday Night Football'

Witten missed one game in his career - as a rookie in 2003 - and is expected to join ESPN's "Monday Night Football" broadcast booth, replacing Jon Gruden.

The Jason Witten Collegiate Man of the Year Award was established in 2017 in his honor to reward the Division I college football player who has demonstrated a record of leadership by exhibiting exceptional courage, integrity and sportsmanship both on and off the field.

The Cowboys drafted Witten in the third round of the 2003 NFL Draft and he spent 15 years with the team making an impact nearly immediately.

Playing his whole career in Dallas, Witten started all 16 games for 11 consecutive seasons since 2007.

Witten, an 11-time Pro Bowl selection at tight end, finishes his career as the fourth-leading receiver in National Football League history (1,152 receptions), trailing only Jerry Rice, fellow tight end Tony Gonzalez, and Larry Fitzgerald. He's the Cowboys franchise's all-time leader in receptions with 1,152 - 53 percent more than second-place Michael Irvin - and receiving yards with 12,448. We do good, upright things, because we want to leave a positive legacy in our wake.

The Arsenal captain was clearly in pain as he thumped the ground with his hand before eventually leaving the field on a stretcher to be replaced by Calum Chambers.

"Witten is the standard as a football player and a person... until the end of time".

"I was never the most talented, never the flashiest". I knew the demands and what I had to do every day and day in and day out, and I was committed to doing that. The franchise's all-time leader in receptions and receiving yards spoke on the difficulty of the decision to step away from the game.

Cornerback Williams James assisted on the hit, tearing Witten's helmet from his head. "That is certainly what I tried my best to do during my time with this organization". "But hopefully I can play until I'm 40 like some of these other guys we're talking about".

Witten is a sure-fire Hall of Famer. Another Dallas Cowboys player is coming to TV.

While Witten's retirement was anticipated - as was his landing with ESPN - the longtime player reportedly changed his mind several times over the past week before eventually accepting the gig. Dallas drafted Stanford's Dalton Schultz in the fourth round last week.
