Sturm's Morning After - the Cowboys' shocking morning and strong night

Report: Jason Witten retiring from Cowboys to join ESPN's Monday Night Football

After an offseason of deliberation about his playing future, it seems that Jason Witten has made his decision.

Witten met with owner and general manager Jerry Jones, who said no official announcement was coming Friday.

Witten was not available for immediate comment.

Witten would leave the Cowboys as the franchise leader in games played (239), receptions (1,152) and receiving yards (12,448).

Dallas, TX-After the release of Dez Bryant, a lot of fans expected the Cowboys to get another wide receiver to fill in the gap at the wide receiver position, but the Cowboys went in another direction with drafting linebacker Leighton Vander Esch. He now ranks 2nd all-time among National Football League tight ends in terms of receptions and receiving yards, trailing only Gonzalez.

Last spring, Witten inked a four-year contract extension through the 2021 season. There's Geoff Swaim, who caught two passes for 25 yards last season; undrafted second-year player Blake Jarwin; and basketball player turned tight end (and almost defensive end) Rico Gathers.

Witten has established Cowboys records for career receptions, career receiving yards and consecutive seasons with a reception, among others.

Swaim's nine career receptions represent the trio's entire output.

Schultz had 22 catches for 212 yards and a career-high three touchdowns as a senior. "We don't think we're going into a season without a good tight end".

Witten, who was a first-team All-Pro selection in 2007 and 2010, joined the Cowboys as a third-round draft pick out of Tennessee in 2003.

Witten has appeared in every game since sitting out Week 5 of his rookie season.

With the fifth-year option guaranteed for injury alone, the Cardinals have more to for Humphries to become the player they believe he can be.

It was the first sign of Witten's legendary toughness.

It's not exactly a denial that Jason Witten is indeed retiring but it isn't a rebuttal either.

"Forget 110 catches [in 2012], forget [the] Pro Bowl, forget all that stuff".

"I've talked to Jason several times this week". Day 2 of the NFL Draft?
