Jason Witten wants to keep playing football, but recognizes his NFL future might not be with the Dallas Cowboys.

The legendary tight end has some decisions to make on his future, and one of them will be whether or not he wants to keep playing. It sounds like he does, but he doesn’t know if it’ll be with the Cowboys. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

“I think I have to be. Obviously, I’d love to finish it out here, but some of those things are not in your control,” Witten said when asked about potentially playing somewhere else, according to ESPN’s Todd Archer.

“Of course I want it to be with the Dallas Cowboys, and I’ll always be a Dallas Cowboy, but I also understand that with all the changes, that I might have to go somewhere else,” he added.

It’ll be fascinating to see what Witten decides to do. As I say with Brady and the New England Patriots, some players just shouldn’t play for other teams.

It just wouldn’t feel right. I think we can put Witten and the Cowboys in that category. He’s a fixture within the organization.

It would feel so strange to watch Witten put on the pads for another team. Of course, if the Cowboys don’t want him, I have no doubt he’ll have plenty of suitors.
