Jason Witten has announced he is retiring-again. The 11-time pro-bowler told ESPN that after 17 years in the NFL he has decided to call it quits. Not before he signs a one-day contract so he can retire as a Dallas Cowboy. Witten spent 16 seasons with the Cowboys and is set to sign the contract in March when his current one with the Las Vegas Raiders expires. 

The tight end previously retired from the NFL following the 2017 season. He joined ESPN's Monday Night Football broadcast booth, but decided to return to Dallas to play in 2019. Witten will finish his career with 1,228 catches, 13,046 yards, 74 touchdowns and playing 271 games which is the most in NFL history played by a tight end.
