Last week, Jason Witten shocked the NFL world when he announced that he was leaving the ‘Monday Night Football’ booth to return to play football for the Dallas Cowboys.
Witten explained that he was returning because he missed competing on the football field.
The fire inside of me to compete and play this game is just burning too strong,” Witten said in a statement. “This team has a great group of rising young stars, and I want to help them make a run at a championship. This was completely my decision, and I am very comfortable with it. I’m looking forward to getting back in the dirt.”
During today’s NFL combine coverage, former Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. was asked if he was considering a comeback a la Witten and delivered a hilarious answer.
