    The Dallas Cowboys are holding a few final workouts before heading to Oxnard next month. Jason Witten, who will play in his 14th season with the team come Fall, says he plans to stay with the team. (Published Tuesday, June 14, 2016)

    Tight end Jason Witten has spent more than one-third of his life playing for the Dallas Cowboys, and the franchise’s leading receiver can’t see himself signing with any other team before his career is finished.

    “Mr. Jones has allowed every opportunity and dream of ours to be reality, so there’s a commitment and loyalty there that you want to bring [a championship] back here,” Witten said. 

    The veteran entering his 14th season in Dallas was asked if he would consider signing with another team in pursuit of a Super Bowl championship if that goal is not achieved in the next few seasons with the Cowboys. 

    His former teammate, DeMarcus Ware, signed with the eventual Super Bowl champion Broncos after Dallas released him in the spring of 2014.

    “Circumstances worked out differently for DeMarcus and I’m happy for him because he’s one of the great guys and great players and great teammates,” Witten said. “But I couldn’t see myself doing it any place besides right here.”
