Recent reports have emerged that lifelong Cowboy tight end Jason Witten is considering a potential reunion with former Cowboys Head Coach Jason Garrett with the divisional rival New York Giants.
Witten has been a Cowboy for his entire career and is the all-time leader in receptions, catches, and second in receiving touchdowns. He is the epitome of a legend and should not be wearing any helmet without a blue star on the side.
Per @mortreport, keep an eye on the possibility of Jason Witten joining Jason Garrett with the Giants. Would certainly make for a fascinating move for the lifelong Cowboys tight end.

Regardless of the fact that Witten is older and on the decline, he is one of the main leaders of the team and is a perfect example of a professional for younger players to aspire to be.
The Tennessee alum is still an excellent blocker and security blanket for Dak Prescott and if Witten continues playing and delays another retirement, he could be a valuable asset for this Cowboys team in 2020. Not to mention new Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy never had a superstar tight end in his tenure with Green Bay, meaning that the Cowboys should try to resign Witten to a smaller deal.
This would be huge for the Cowboys as they have a vast number of important free agents including stars Dak Prescott, #1 receiver Amari Cooper, and CB Byron Jones. All three of these players will require contracts that give them top of the league money at their respective positions.
Witten leaving to go to New York with new Giants OC Jason Garrett would also hurt the Cowboys and he would provide immense leadership for a young Giants team that plays the Cowboys twice a year.
Witten should be brought back to Dallas on a small deal, so he can continue to help our young offense grow.
