Jason Witten expected retired to join Monday Night Football

Witten met with Jones on Friday but didn't make a firm decision, according to The Dallas Morning News' Brandon George. Rarely one to have to work off a script, Jones did this to begin a press conference introducing the Cowboys' first-round pick, linebacker Leighton Vander Esch. He has not made any decisions that are definite at this time. Jones did not address what he and Witten discussed and said the tight end still needed time to contemplate his future - "at least through the weekend".

FRISCO, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys have drafted a tight end with Jason Witten on the verge of retirement after 15 seasons. Witten turns 36 in early May.

The presence of the phrase "a lead analyst" in the de facto announcement suggests that there could be another analyst in the booth, making it potentially a three-person operation. The Dallas Cowboys were originally under the impression that Jason Witten was going to attempt to play until he was 40 years old. Losing Witten would be a tremendous blow to this franchise and the league as a whole. The Cowboys have one pick in the fifth, three in the sixth and one in the seventh.

The 49ers have traded right tackle Trent Brown to the Patriots, a day after drafting Mike McGlinchey as his replacement.

Gates has spent his entire career with the Chargers, who signed him as an undrafted free agent in 2003.

Comcast had already bought NBC Universal back in 2011 and now it clearly fancies expanding its operations internationally. Comcast also said it will give legally-binding commitments to maintain editorial independence at Sky News.

The 49ers dealt Brown and the 143rd overall pick to New England on Friday for the 95th overall pick.

The NFL says Thursday's first round of the draft had the second-largest viewership ever for an opening night.

"Since we arrived a year ago, Jaquiski has impressed us with his play, his work ethic and the kind of teammate he is", 49ers general manager John Lynch said.

Selected by the 49ers in the second round (46th overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft, the 6-foot-1, 221-pound Tartt has appeared in 39 games (23 starts) and amassed 181 tackles, nine passes defensed, 3.5 sacks, two interceptions and one forced fumble during.
