  • Jerry is apparently saying Witten has not made a final decision.

    But that sounds to me like trying to cover for the fact that we now have to take a TE in round 2 or 3.

      • Like it matters. The staff has a hard-on for Uncle Rico. So until he proves that he can’t play, we’re not doing shit.
        No Pat McQuistan = No Super Bowl. It's that simple.

          • The problem with the "they've known this for weeks" argument is that it then means that they knew Witten was leaving (and knew or should have known Hannah's shaky status) and did absofuckinglutely nothing at TE in FA.

            Even if you assume Jerry and Goof Son are capable of such GM malpractice (not unreasonable), you think Garrett and Linehan, who are pretty much on 1-year prove it deals this year, wouldn't be screaming to get a replacement (or frankly, two)? They were ok replacing a first ballot HOFer with Swaim, Uncle Rico, and something named "Jarwin"? Hell, didn't we just do some bullshit no cost extension with him to create cap space?

            C'mon, even they are not THAT incompetent.

            They surely knew of the reports and the possibility, but I guarantee they were counting on him for one more year. ESPN found out he was going to a competitor, reported it, and here we are.

            Unless Jerry talks him out of it.

              He already had the meeting and all we have left is the official announcement. As much as I want to bash Garrett and the front office I have to think you are correct.

                      • Jerry Jones: Jason Witten has made no decisions
                        Posted by Michael David Smith on April 27, 2018, 3:38 PM EDT

                        Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says Jason Witten has made no final decisions about his future, despite an ESPN report that Witten is planning to retire and work for ESPN.
                        “He has some things to think about and discuss with his family from a professional perspective,” Jones said. “He also told me he is going to need some more time for consideration, at least through the weekend. He has not made any decisions that are definite at this time. We have no announcement at this time.”

                        Jones said he and Witten have been in contact regularly this week and that he considers Witten a valuable member of the Cowboys organization.

                        “I’ve talked to Jason several times this week. I’ve met with him, I met with him as late as just a few hours ago, and we’ve had great discussions. I’ll keep the details of those discussions private forever,” Jones said.

                        Jones said he’s expecting Witten to come to a decision some time after this weekend.

                          Sounds like it's another classic example of Jerry assuming he could wheel and deal his way out of a problem. Probably thought he could fast-talk Witten into playing another season so he made very little effort into looking for successors.

                            They are scrambling because of the timing of the leak.

                            • Ah, so after the weekend, meaning after the event that is pretty much our only chance this year of finding an adequate replacement. Awesome.

                              Thanks, Jason! <3

                                Even before this news broke it was widely assumed that Witten only had a year or two left in him.

                                Sounds like these clowns were trying to wait until after he held his retirement ceremony to begin the search for his replacement.
