Steve Smith has hilarious reaction to Witten rejoining Cowboys
Jason Witten’s somewhat iffy one-year tenure in the Monday Night Football booth ended last week when he decided to return to the Dallas Cowboys for 2019. So are any other players-turned-broadcasters ready to get back on the field?
NFL Network’s Steve Smith, one of the finest wide receivers of his era, has no plans to follow Witten back into the game. His reason is simple: he’s good at his job.

To say that Witten was unpopular and gaffe-prone as a broadcaster would be understating things. Smith has no such issue. Not only is he popular as a TV personality, but he’s even outlined the efforts he’s gone to in order to ensure that he doesn’t get the urge to play again. When he’s dropping one-liners like that, why would he?
