Jason Witten to Retire From NFL After 17 Seasons

Jason Witten is hanging up the cleats, again. 

The former Cowboys and Raiders tight end announced his (second) retirement from the league on Tuesday after 17 seasons in the NFL, according to ESPN. 

Witten initially retired following the 2017 campaign, but he returned to the Cowboys after a year as the color commentator for ESPN's Monday Night Football. 

Witten spent his final season in the league as a reserve tight end for the Raiders. He played in all 16 games, catching 13 balls for a nice 69 yards and a pair of touchdowns. 

Witten finishes his stellar career with 1,228 receptions, 13,046 yards and 74 touchdowns. 

There's no word about Witten's post-playing career, but we're pretty sure he won't be a commentator for Monday Night Football.
