LOOK: Jason Witten says goodbye to Dallas Cowboys teammates, employees, receives incredible retirement gift
It was an emotional day in Dallas as former Tennessee TE Jason Witten said goodbye to the Cowboys. After 15 seasons, Witten has decided to hang it up and move to the booth, announcing “Monday Night Football” for ESPN.
He ends his NFL career as second all-time in receptions and receiving yards for a tight end and with the reputation as a role model on and off the field.
NFL Network reporter Jane Slater shared video of an awesome moment where Cowboys players, coaches and employees formed a long line to say their goodbyes to Witten at the team facility.

At the end of the press conference, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones presented an incredible retirement gift: a blinged-out Dallas Cowboys football.
