Jason Witten is moving from Dallas as he heads west to Las Vegas. The Raiders and Witten agreed on a one year deal to bring the veteran tight end to Sin City, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Witten has been with the Cowboys since 2003. He did take a year off in 2018 as he retired from the NFL to join the Monday Night Football broadcast. After subpar reviews, he came back to the NFL and played last season for the Cowboys. He’s been to the Pro Bowl 11 times in his career.

Witten will be joining star tight end Darren Walker after he received a contract extension from the Raiders as well.

It’s a move that was surprising for the Raiders, but does add depth to the tight end position. Gives another weapon for Derek Carr and a reliable one to throw it to. Witten is well known for his reliable hands on third down. Fans could see the Raiders with two tight end sets in Gruden’s offense.

The leadership ability of Witten has to be accounted for as well. Witten was the emotional leader for the Cowboys and should do the same for the Raiders. He won’t provide big stats for the team, but will be reliable to help improve the offense.
