Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten might not be hanging it up.

According to a Sunday report from Chris Mortensen, there’s a very real chance Witten plays again in 2020 after coming out of retirement this past season. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Mortensen also said he could go to the Giants to be with former head coach Jason Garrett.

Witten is truly an ironman of an athlete. The dude entered the league back in 2003. George W. Bush was in his first term when Witten made his debut!

Outside of one season spent working in the booth for ESPN, he’s been a fixture of the Dallas Cowboys. It’s not a secret he’d like to get into coaching.

It sounds like that won’t happen this season, which seems to be the reason why he’d keep playing. Given his position, it’s wildly impressive how long he’s made it in the league.

Going to the Giants could also be a great move for Witten. They’d pay him for his experience, to mentor the younger players, and he’d be with a coach he has experience with.

Witten is a phenomenal athlete and leader. Any team would be lucky to have him in their locker room, and the Giants should absolutely take a run at him if the Cowboys don’t keep him.
