Jerry Jones still thinks Jason Witten could help Cowboys
Jason Witten returned to the Dallas Cowboys last season after briefly exploring a career in the broadcast booth, and the veteran tight end proved he can be more than just an important voice in the locker room. Although the Cowboys have undergone some big changes this offseason, Jerry Jones says he wants Witten back.
Jones said this week that he would not want to see Witten in anything but a Dallas uniform, and he believes the 37-year-old still has plenty to offer.
Jerry Jones wants Jason Witten back: “I would hope that he would not ever be anything but a Cowboy. I do think he can play. I think he can make a real contribution to the Cowboys.”

Witten’s future in Dallas is up in the air, as he will soon become a free agent and Mike McCarthy has taken over as the team’s head coach. That said, Witten is known for his leadership ability and caught 63 passes for 529 yards and four touchdowns. He’s still a valuable safety net for Dak Prescott and a big presence in the locker room.
Witten has said he intends to play in 2020 and wants to remain with the Cowboys, but he is open to playing elsewhere if they don’t want him back.
