Dallas Cowboys fans may be sad about the fact that longtime tight end great Jason Witten has decided to hang up his cleats, but they'll be happy to know that he'll still be seen on Monday nights, this time from inside the broadcast booth.

At the age of 36 with 15 great years with the Dallas Cowboys under his belt, Witten was always a highlight in Cowboys games, leading the team in receptions, games and receiving yards over his career.

Witten, who was a 3003 3rd round draft pick, who turned out to be one of the most prolific tight ends in the game, had actually said just a couple of weeks ago that he might play until he was 40, but an offer from ESPN was too good to pass up.

Obviously with his reputation as a go-to player and leader on the field for the Cowboys, he has a lot of insight that should help him in calling NFL games.

The first time he gets to call a Cowboys game will be November 4th when Dallas hosts the Tennessee Titans.
