Report: Witten pursued reunion with Cowboys

A report emerged last month that the Dallas Cowboys approached former tight end Jason Witten about coming out of retirement to return to the team. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and head coach Jason Garrett later denied that report.

Now, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports it was Witten who approached the Cowboys about a reunion.

The homecoming ultimately never happened, as Witten remained in the Monday Night Football booth with ESPN while the Cowboys won the NFC East crown.
