Dallas Cowboys veteran tight end Jason Witten could possibly join former head coach Jason Garrett with the Giants, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.
Witten, 37, has played his entire 16-year career with the Cowboys. He briefly retired after the 2017 season to join ESPN's Monday Night Football as an analyst, but returned to play with the Cowboys for the 2019 season.
Mortensen added that since Witten is obviously familiar with Garrett's offense, he could be an ideal veteran presence to a young team.
Sports Illustrated's Mike Fisher reported that Witten could possibly coach or play with a different team in 2020.
Witten has yet to decide if his playing days are over, and Fisher mentioned that Witten plans on getting into coaching after retirement.
Newly hired Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy has visited with Witten to discuss his "many career options".
"And while Witten could accept a Cowboys job as a lower-level coach, or in scouting or in administration it now appears that one of his 'options' might be to work against the Cowboys rather than with them," Fisher said.
In 255 career games, Witten made 1,215 receptions for 12,977 yards and 72 touchdowns. He made 63 receptions for 529 yards and four touchdowns in 2019, and is fourth all-time in receptions, only behind Tony Gonzalez, Larry Fitzgerald, and Jerry Rice.
