My Favorite Football Player Came Out of Retirement And Then Switched Teams And I’m Sad
Back in 2018, my favorite football player, Jason Witten retired from football.
I was devastated. I love him. I even wrote about it. You can read that here.
Then, he came out of retirement and I rejoiced! He returned to the Dallas Cowboys where he belonged!
Now, he is going to play for the Raiders! The Las Vegas Raiders! I can't even. I'm upset.
According to ESPN.com, "Witten, the longest-tenured player in Dallas Cowboys history, intends to sign with the Raiders when free agency begins Wednesday, agreeing to a one-year deal in which he could make up to $4.75 million, according to a source."
The article goes on to say, "Speaking at the scouting combine last month in Indianapolis, owner, and general manager Jerry Jones said he did not want to see Witten play in another uniform."
So what happened, Jerry?!?!?! I need answers.
Witten will be 38 in May and while I enjoyed him coming out of retirement, I think maybe he should just retire for good and count his money and spend time with his adorable daughters.
I'm also just bitter that he's leaving the Cowboys. Ugh.
I'm going to need some time to get over this.
