2. Jason Witten ripple effect
The Byron Jones domino effect isn’t the only one ripping through the Dallas current. Jason Witten will be in the NFL in 2020, but it may not be with the Cowboys. He turns 38 in May. The 2020 season will be his 17th year in the league.
Witten may have lost a step, but his numbers weren’t exactly bad either. He caught 63 balls, was targeted 83 times and scored four times. He earned 529 receiving yards and averaged 8.4 yards per catch.
If Witten is indeed out of Big D and follows Jason Garrett to the New York Giants, the Dallas Cowboys need to tag Blake Jarwin with help. It’ll be interesting to see how the Dallas brass shapes the tight ends room.
Even with an aging Jason Witten, the Dallas Cowboys still owned the top spot offensively in the NFL. Head coach Mike McCarthy and offensive coordinator Kellen Moore need weapons at this position, but it may cost them precious draft capital, particularly with their first three picks.
