REPORT: Jason Witten Signing With Las Vegas Raiders

    has had a wild chain of events over the past few years. After the , he decided to call it a career as he joined 's as the color analyst after a career with the . One year later, he made his return to the gridiron to play in 2019. He managed to become the team's starter, but he simply wasn't the same player as before.

    A day after the Cowboys signed to a three-year $24.25M extension, we know what's next in Jason Witten's career. While many wondered if this was the end of the road for him as a player, his camp had said that he wanted to play another season, even if it meant leaving the silver and blue.

    Well, Witten will keep wearing silver. Only this time, said color will be accompanied by black.

    Jason Witten is a one-year deal with the Raiders that could earn him up to $4.75M in 2020.

    were in a weird position regarding Witten. After all, we're not talking about any player here. We're talking future Hall of Famer Jason Witten. Mr. Reliable. The was one of the faces of the franchise for an entire generation of fans.

    Watching Witten wear another will be difficult. Hopefully, he's given a role in which he can truly shine with 's . It's a huge surprise to see him land in Las Vegas, but that's just how the NFL works.

    At some point, it's time to move on. The Dallas Cowboys have done so. Jason Witten will always be remembered as a Cowboy, and I hope someday he signs a symbolic one-day contract to retire as such.

    Witten will leave the Cowboys as the franchise all-time leader in career receptions (1,215), receiving yards (12,938), receptions in a single game (18), games played (239), consecutive games started (179) and second on all-time receiving touchdowns (72).

    C’mon Jerry, if you can sign Lee to a 1-year deal then why not Jason? I don’t get it?

    Ben Miller

    Lee provides valuable backup at a pro bowl level at a position of need. Witten was blocking the progression of Jarwin and Shultz and provides no upside other than leadership. A good team doesn’t toss away $4M in cap space based upon sentimentality.
