  • Report: Career Cowboy Jason Witten to retire after 15 seasons

Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones confirmed that he has had several meeting with Witten this week.

Witten met with Jones on Friday but didn't make a firm decision, according to The Dallas Morning News' Brandon George. "He also told me that those things are going to require a few more days of consideration, at least through the weekend". Jerry then said he won't be addressing the situation any further this weekend, per Witten's wishes.

The news on the second day of the draft could affect the Cowboys' plans just a week after Witten suggested he might play until he was 40 and meant to return this coming season.

Witten turns 36 on May 6.

The news was surprising to the world, but Witten has stated last season that he was thinking about retiring and spending more time with his family.

The presence of the phrase "a lead analyst" in the de facto announcement suggests that there could be another analyst in the booth, making it potentially a three-person operation. The decision to retire is a reversal for Witten, who previously said he would return to the Cowboys for the 2018 season.

The candidate for Badami , from where Chief Minister Siddaramaiah will contest for the Congress, is yet to be announced. The BJP went into damage control mode and is rushing Prakash Javadekar and Muralidhar Rao to sort out the problem.

Witten was a two-time first-team All-Pro selection (2007, 2010), and joined the Cowboys as a third-round pick out of Tennessee in the 2003 NFL Draft. The Cowboys signed Romo, an undrafted free agent out of Eastern Illinois, that same year.

"We feel really good about our tight ends", Jones said.

A seventh-round draft pick of San Francisco in 2015, Brown played primarily at right tackle for the 49ers, although he saw some time at left tackle. Although it was rumored as a possible area of need in this week's National Football League draft for America's Team, the simple number of tight ends on the roster seem to indicate something different.

Schultz had 22 catches for 212 yards and a career-high three touchdowns as a senior. With one more season, Witten would be the most tenured Dallas Cowboy of all-time with 16 seasons under his pads.

Tartt was a second-round pick in 2015.

Nunez-Roches started 11 games and played in every one last season.
