Cowboys' Jason Witten: Slated for light workload in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witten has agreed to play around 25 snaps per game in 2019 and will not impede the progress of the Cowboys' young tight ends, Clarence Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Witten's return to the Cowboys was great news for just about everybody but Blake Jarwin, who broke out with a monster seven-reception, 119-yard, three-score outing in the regular-season finale last season. With Geoff Swaim set to become a free agent this spring, that performance seemingly had Jarwin positioned atop the depth chart entering the offseason over the likes of Dalton Schultz and Rico Gathers. While Witten's addition at first seems like it could threaten Jarwin's perch, the fact Witten only wants 20ish snaps per game means Jarwin doesn't need to be a starter to see enough playing time to be of fantasy worth. Witten, meanwhile, logged roughly 17 offensive snaps for every reception he had in his last full season, which doesn't make him a very exciting fantasy prospect ahead of the 2019 campaign given the workload that's reportedly in store for him.

Cowboys' Jason Witten: Coming out of retirement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witten announced that he is coming out of retirement and is signing a contract with the Cowboys for the 2019 season, Nick Eatman of the team's official site reports. "The fire inside of me to compete and play this game is just burning too strong," the tight end said in a statement. "I'm looking forward to getting back in the dirt."

Witten retired from the league last May after his inconsistent Cowboys team finished 9-6 and missed the playoffs, opting to try his hand at a career in broadcasting instead. However, it seems the opportunity to join promising, refreshed Cowboys roster that finished the 2018 season 10-6 (with a divisional crown and playoff berth) was too enticing for Witten to pass up. The legendary tight will likely enter training camp atop the depth chart and will now get another chance to compete for a Super Bowl. Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, Witten's contract is a one-year deal worth $3.5 million.
