ESPN football analyst Jason Witten has decided to put on his football helmet once again.
This development comes following his decision to exit the sports broadcasting firm’s “Monday Night Football” show lately and sign a new contract with the Dallas Cowboys.
As the Texas team welcomes back football tight end number 82, Witten concluded his one-year stint with ESPN’s program to commit to a $2-million agreement with his former team.
The one-year deal comes with bonuses for the 36-year-old returning Dallas Cowboys tight end.
Witten had retired from the National Football League (NFL) after the 2017 season but is now coming back.
The all-time receiving leader of the Dallas Cowboys said that he could feel the ardent desire within himself to compete and play again.
The Dallas Cowboys is the only NFL squad that Witten had committed his football playing time to from 2003 to 2017, according to his career history.
Besides this positive development for the returning tight end, Witten is also slated to be inducted at the Texas Sports Hall of Fame on March 30.
The newest Dallas Cowboys Hall of Famer enters the shrine as an active football player and will be a component of the Class of 2019 with seven members.
What makes the Elizabethton, Tennessee native well-received are his reported core values that are favorable and could bring the Dallas Cowboys to its ultimate glory.
As the 69th pick overall by the Texan football team during the 2003 NFL Draft, Witten has been reckoned as a model of consistency, excellent sportsmanship, and a laudable team-player.
The 2012 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Awardee cited that he would remain to be humble and responsible as he comes back on his 16th NFL season.
Witten mentioned that, whether his team would be victorious or vanquished with him on board again, he will remain industrious and drive the Dallas Cowboys to “make a run at a championship.”
