Jerry Jones: Jason Witten Needs "Few More Days" To Ponder His Future

FRISCO, Texas – Addressing earlier reports that veteran tight end Jason Witten is considering a move from football to broadcasting, Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said Friday that Witten "has not made any decisions that are definite at this time" and "has some things to think about" regarding his professional future, at least through the weekend.

Jones gave a brief statement and did not take questions afterward "with respect to Jason and his wishes."

"I've talked to Jason several times this week. I have met with him, met with him as late as just a few hours ago and we've had great discussions," Jones said. "I'll keep the details of those discussions private forever.

"He has some things to think about and discuss with his family from a professional perspective. He also told me that those things are going to require a few more days of consideration, at least through the weekend.

"He has not made any decisions that are definite at this time. We have no announcement today as it pertains to Jason's future other than to say that he's a wonderful and valued member of our organization and our family."

Witten, a 15-year veteran, is the Cowboys' all-time leader in games played, consecutive starts and receiving yards.
