Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent TE Jason Witten reached agreement on a one-year deal with the Las Vegas Raiders, according to a source Tuesday, March 17. Witten can earn up to $4.75 million in 2020.
Huddle Up: Witten's role is unknown, as Darren Waller is coming off a 1,145-yard breakout 2019 campaign. Waller could move to wide receiver for the 2020 season to open up more snaps for Witten, but the veteran won't be an option as anything more than TE2 to begin the season.

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten, an impending free agent, would be welcomed back to the team by owner Jerry Jones. 'I feel strongly he wants to play, and I think he can play,' Jones said. 'I would hope that he would not ever be anything but a Cowboy. It's meaningful. He's in the tops right there. I do think he can play. As I sit here right now I think he can make a real contribution to the Cowboys.'
Huddle Up: Even at 37, some may not realize Witten finished as a back-end TE1 last season (11th in PPR, 12th in standard total fantasy points), catching 63 of 87 targets for 560 yards. But whether he re-signs in Big D or moves on, the safe bet is that Witten's TE1 days are now done.

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten, a pending free agent, said Saturday he remains undecided on retirement and is realistic about possibly finishing his career with another team.
Huddle Up: The future Hall of Famer did finish 12th among fantasy tight ends (76.9 total points) last season at age 37, but his TE1 days are behind him, and it's hard to imagine him starting over with another team if the Cowboys don't bring him back.

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten has a $375,000 contract incentive that can be earned if he has at least 55 receptions this season and the team reaches the playoffs, according to multiple sources. He has already caught 59 passes but the team needs a victory versus the Washington Redskins in Week 17 and a loss by the Philadelphia Eagles to the New York Giants in order to earn a berth in the postseason.

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten logged four receptions, 36 yards and a touchdown during the team's 44-21 victory over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 15.
Huddle Up: There isn't much athleticism left in Witten at this point, but he can still make the odd highlight-worthy play, and his impressive one-handed TD grab was just that. While the yardage clearly isn't there any longer, Witten still provides a little value, particularly in PPR formats.
