Put a stop on the clock of the Hall of Fame.
This is because Jason Witten has decided that he has not finished playing.
Although he left the NFL in May last year, the forthcoming Hall of Fame will come back. to the cowboys for what will be his 16th season. Witten played 15 years for Cowboys from 2003-17, which included 11 Pro Bowls, the most in the history of the team by any offensive player.
But after he suddenly decided to hang the latches in May last year and join the television stand ] Monday night football Witten, apparently, changed his heart. He will return to the field and will officially sign a contract with the cowboys who left their rights when placed on the NFL list.
"Fire inside me to compete and play this game, too, is burning too. strong, "said Witten. ̵
Witten joins the Cowboys team, who finished 10-6 and won the game on wild cards before getting to Los Angeles Rams in the NFC divisional round.
Although the Cowboys have many young talents and the register that had eight Pro Bowl elections, there is still a close-up question mark – an issue that has probably been answered at the moment. Witte returns to the tough final position, which includes Blake Jarvin and Dalton Schultz under the contract, as well as Rico Gathers. Jeff Swaim, who started all the nine games he played, is an unrestricted free agent and can not be the main priority for re-signing now that Witten is back.
In fact, making a hard end can also not be a priority, given the youth and potential of both Jarvin and Schulz, who now receive the luxury of learning from one of the best ever played for this post.
Witten left with 1152 card receptions, ranked fourth in the history of the NFL, behind Jerry Rice, Tony Gonzalez and Larry Fitzgerald. His 12,448 entry points rank 21st in league records, but second only to Gonzalez (15,127). His 239 card games played the Cowboys franchise record and he played a total of 16 games for 15 years, only missing one game during his career, starting with his season rookie in 2003.
