He's coming out of retirement to try and help the Cowboys win a championship, not pad his stats. The Cowboys pass-catchers have dramatically improved since Witten left them in 2017, as Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, and Randall Cobb are now the staring wide receivers. On top of that, they've incorporated Ezekiel Elliott into the passing-game a lot more since Witten's retirement. He's nothing more than a streaming target in 2019.

Jason Witten ends retirement to re-join Cowboys

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting former Monday Night Football announcer Jason Witten has ended his retirement to re-join the Dallas Cowboys for 2019.

Fantasy Impact

One year removed from his retirement from the NFL following a 15-year career in Dallas, Witten will re-join the Cowboys after a sub-par year as an announcer. The 36-year-old tight end, who will turn 37 in May, has signed a one-year deal with the Cowboys worth $3.5 million. Despite his age, Witten believes he can still play in the league. And given the Cowboys' evident need at tight end, it appears that they do as well. While Witten may not be much in terms of yards after the catch, he could catch the ball, hauling in 63-of-87 targets in 2017. Witten's return could also play a role in his transition into coaching in the league, especially if Dallas targets a tight end in the 2019 NFL Draft. What's more, Witten is one of the most beloved Cowboys of all time on and off the field and could serve as a leader on a team with a plethora of young talent. While this may be a low-impact fantasy football transaction, it could a quality move for the Cowboys as a whole.
