Jason Witten spent the 2018 season retired from the game of football, but he basically embarrassed himself in the booth during every Monday Night Football broadcast.
During the offseason, he decided to give his career one more shot by announcing he was coming back to the team to help them possibly advance further into the playoffs.
The roster must’ve already had an effect on Witten because he recently made a bold statement about the 2019 team.
He has gone 13-3 and been to playoffs as the No. 1 seed twice.
But Witten sees in the 2019 Cowboys as the most talented team he has been on and possibly his best chance of reaching the Super Bowl.
“Yeah, I think it’s close,” Witten said without batting an eye. “The most talent I’ve seen.”
Witten is definitely going to be in a much different role with his current teammates in Dak Presoctt, Amari Cooper, and Ezekiel Elliott than the one he had with former teammates Tony Romo, Dez Bryant and Terrell Owens.
“Fitting in with teammates has never been an issue for me,” he said. “It’s always been something that came very natural. It was important for me to reiterate to them early on that this is their team, it’s their time. It’s an opportunity for me to be a part of it.
“I’m still going to be myself. I think that’s what we all want, is for me to come back and approach it that way. But even early on with those guys, I constantly — whether it was Sean [Lee], Dak, different players along the way, Zeke — I always tried to empower, even though I was the elder statesman on the team.”
