According to Chris Mortensen, Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is planning to retire and join ESPN’s new Monday Night Football broadcast team.  He’s expected to inform Jerry Jones of his decision on Friday.

This a little bit of unexpected news for the Cowboys.  It’s also why there isn’t a dull moment in the Big D.

After 15 years Witten’s finally had enough.  I wonder if the recent release of Dez Bryant after pretty much forcing Tony Romo into retirement has anything to do with it. 

Witten must have also seen how easy it was for his buddy Romo to make the transition into the booth.  I’m sure ESPN is hoping he’s able to predict plays and make noises as brilliantly as Romo does.
