  • Jason Witten soon-to-be-former Cowboy

Cowboys tight end Jason Witten plans to retire after 15 seasons and join ESPN as lead analyst for Monday Night Football, the network reported Friday.

Mortensen reported Witten's retirement is contingent on Cowboys owner Jerry Jones' blessing and that the door is still open for him to return to the field next year. Jones said he and Witten had "great discussions" and said no official decision had been made. On April 27, they selected Boise State linebacker Leighton Vander Esch with their first-round pick. "He has not made any decisions that are definite". Jones did not address what he and Witten discussed and said the tight end still needed time to contemplate his future - "at least through the weekend".

The news could definitely affect the direction the Dallas Cowboys look to go in with the second day of the NFL Draft starting Friday evening.
