Cowboys sign All-Pro Witten to five-year, $37 million extension


Recommended Posts

The Dallas Cowboys have locked up one of their most dangerous offensive players, signing tight end Jason Witten to a five-year, $37 million extension, NFL Network's Michael Lombardi confirmed on Sunday.

A seven-time Pro Bowler, Witten's deal includes $19 million in guaranteed money. He is now under contract through 2017.

I am blessed to say that I will retire a cowboy!," Witten tweeted Sunday morning. "Thx to the jones family, and all the cowboy staff! True honor to put on the star!! #gameday"

ESPN first reported news of the extension.

Witten, 29, has been one of the most productive pass-catching tight ends in football since being selected in the third round of the 2003 NFL Draft. Last season, Witten tallied 94 receptions for 1,002 yards and nine touchdowns.

yea, they are giving lots of upfront money on these contracts. They just restructured Romo's so they are saving cap space from next year.

Hope Witten plays out this contract and retires as a Cowboy. the team and us fans have been blessed to have him.

Yeah you are seeing ALOT of front loaded contracts in the nfl nowadays.

Its good to see a good player have the chance to stick with his original team.

There is far too much turnover in pro sports.
