Jason Witten Returns To Monday Night Football
Jason Witten is back on 'Monday Night Football'. Unlike last year he will be on the field rather than the booth.
The 37-year-old worked for ESPN as an analyst all of last season working alongside Joe Tessitore. Many were critical of his performance, but I think a lot of that was comparing him to the stellar job of his former teammate Tony Romo has done since day one of working with CBS.
He doesn't seem to regret leaving the game for a year but is happy he is back to doing what he does best.
"It was a good time in my life. It really was, I enjoyed every moment of it, working with those guys, but I'm also very appreciative of being right where I'm at. This is what I wanted to do. I had an opportunity to play. It's a good group of guys. I'm amazed at how hard they work and how talented they are, but I'm right where I need to be."

With 26 catches and 2 touchdowns, he appears to have not missed a step.
Dallas is in a decent spot in the middle of the season, coming off a win that gave them the top spot in the NFC East. It's leaders like Witten who can help keep the team on track.
