He spent time playing with Dallas and the Raiders, and will retire as a member of the Cowboys once his deal with Las Vegas officially expires.

Witten had a hell of a career and will forever be remembered as one of the greatest tight ends to ever put on pads.

The man was also a pillar of the Cowboys for 16 years! He was Tony Romo’s security blanket on the field and he did a great job doing it.
