The Jason Witten journey continues, and he’s sticking around in the NFL for at least another year. After taking time away from the NFL to work on “Monday Night Football,” he returned to Dallas, and now he’s headed to Las Vegas.

This is a great signing for the Raiders. Witten provides an immediate veteran voice in the locker room and he’ll be a dependable player on the offense.

It’s not clear if Derek Carr or Marcus Mariota will be the starting quarterback for Jon Gruden, but Witten will be a security blanket for whichever ends up getting the starting nod.

It’s kind of wild how he just took a year off from football to get into the broadcast booth, and now he’s playing for Jon Gruden in Las Vegas.
