Warner may be miffed that the tiebreaker wasn't skill or experience but the fact that Witten played for the Dallas Cowboys. He is fourth in National Football League history in catches, behind only Jerry Rice, Tony Gonzalez and Larry Fitzgerald. He's also an 11-time Pro-Bowler and two-time first-team All-Pro.
What Witten did on the field was a dream individual career, especially at a position that tended to fly under the radar everywhere except places like New England or San Diego, and, of course, Dallas.
He's a father to two sons, Cooper and C.J., and two daughters, Landry and Hadley. "Many times over the years I'd wake up and jump out of bed and catch myself saying "how lucky am I" to be able to play the game of football for the Dallas Cowboys". But the team's record was a combined 125-115 over his 15-year career that saw only six playoff appearances.
Elon Musk shuts down analysts during Tesla's earnings call
The Model 3 is viewed as Tesla's first foray into what might be called moderately priced electric cars. Despite where it will be constructed, the Model Y "will be an assembling transformation", said Musk.
Another network made what was termed an "interesting" offer that would allow him to keep playing and potentially walk away in 2019, according to a source. We will always remember it and we're going to do more than remember it.
Cornerback Williams James assisted on the hit, tearing Witten's helmet from his head. But his absence will be most acute in the locker room.
It sure looks like Jason Witten got new hair to go along with his new job as color commentator on Monday Night Football with Joe Tessitore, which is a huge loss for college football broadcasts on ESPN. "It's time to pass the torch to the next generation". Witten caught a Tony Romo pass over the middle on 2nd-and-9, and got absolutely drilled by Eagles safety Quintin Mikell in what could very well be flagged as targeting in today's game. Romo responded in the only way a best friend would: "Gonna miss u the most 82". If anybody has worked and given of themselves as much as he gave to the fans of the Dallas Cowboys, if anybody deserves to have taken advantage of that opportunity, Jason Witten deserves to take advantage of that opportunity.
