Dallas Cowboys’ Jason Witten Confirms He’s Retiring And Headed To ESPN

Long-time Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is retiring from the NFL to move to TV, where he’ll serve as color analyst for ESPN’s “Monday Night Football.” The 10-time Pro Bowl tight end informed Cowboys owner Jerry Jones of his plan to retire Thursday. News had broken a few months back that Witten was auditioning for TV jobs; the NFL veteran auditioned with both ESPN for “MNF” and Fox Sports for “Thursday Night Football.”  Witten will succeed Jon Gruden, who left ESPN to return to NFL as a coach with the Raiders.
