Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten, 35, is set to retire after 15 seasons in the NFL.
According to ESPN, a source said that the team was aware that Witten may retire but the decision was not going to be made final until Witten received Jerry Jones blessing.
A meeting between Witten and Jones is planned for Friday, April 27.
ESPN has yet to comment on the final Monday Night Football broadcast team but Witten has been in talks with multiple networks on becoming a game analyst.
If Witten does officially announce retirement before the next season, he would leave as the Dallas Cowboys leader in games played (239), pass receptions (1,152), receiving yards (12,448) and is third in receiving touchdowns (68).
