Last week, following the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, Dallas Cowboys fans were left in shock by the news that 15-year veteran tight end Jason Witten was considering retirement.
He's the franchise's all-time receiving leader, having caught 1,152 passes for 12,448 yards and 68 touchdowns over the course of his illustrious career. And from what it sounds like, the offer was one of those either you couldn't refuse or one you shouldn't refuse.
The biggest wave to come from draft weekend for the Dallas Cowboys may not be any player selected inside their home stadium. Again, to play or not to play.
Jason Witten's offer from ESPN reportedly is lucrative. So if he plays this year, he lowers the potential repayment obligation to a maximum of $3.525 million. There have been reports he'd rather get into coaching. The Cowboys would essentially be giving him free money if the team were to choose not to ask for the $4.7 million back.

"He has some things to think about and discuss with his family from a professional perspective", Jones said. And it makes more sense that this other network would be Fox than anyone else; it seems reasonably unlikely that it's NBC targeting Witten, as their broadcast and studio lineup seems relatively set and they only have one game a week now, but you never know. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones also indicated that he'd like to keep Witten around. But what about ESPN?
Witten, who turns 36 in May, was named the Walter Payton Man of the Year in 2012. Can't put all the remaining candidates on hold.
As Mike Florio notes at Pro Football Talk, the most Witten can make this year if he stays in the NFL is $1.05 million in base salary and up to $750,000 in per-game roster bonuses. The extension basically was to shut everyone else up from continually asking him if 2017 would be his last year since it was to be the final year of his contract. Of the names that are now available, the one that seems to make the most sense is Gary Barnidge.
