The Dallas Cowboys had a need at the wide collector and exchanged for Amari Cooper. Presently, Coach Jason Garrett supposedly has his eye on another procurement: ESPN’s Jason Witten, the previous Cowboys tight end.

Garrett has attempted a few times to persuade Witten to leave the corner and come back to the playing field, the system’s Adam Schefter reports. Witten, who has had a rough first season as the shading investigator on “Monday Night Football,” has opposed the suggestions even as the Cowboys have won four amusements consecutively since gaining Cooper and are on the NFC East going into Sunday’s diversion against the Eagles.

The Cowboys could utilize help at tight end and Garrett trusted Witten could step appropriate back in. Witten, 36, spent his whole 15 seasons with the group and completed second unsurpassed in the NFL in gatherings (1,152) and accepting yards (12,448) by a tight end, trailing just Tony Gonzalez in the two classes.

In fairness, Witten’s previous quarterback, Tony Romo, made it look incredibly simple when he joined CBS a year ago. Yet, while Romo’s amusements have been set apart by energy and the capacity to adequately clarify and anticipate plays, Witten’s have been striking for a grievous correlation of Giants running back Saquon Barkley to O.J. Simpson, a faux pas about Aaron Rodgers pulling “a rabbit out of his head” and a remark about the NFL ending up too “left wing.” ESPN was left to clarify that last one, and Witten disclosed to The Post’s Ben Strauss that “it was a misunderstanding in words. I was stating the pendulum was moving to one side and I surmise the nerves of being a youngster — I mean trust me I could never get into hurrying the passer and legislative issues.”
