Cowboys' Witten retiring after 15 seasons to join MNF

A couple hours after Chris Mortensen of ESPN reported that Witten was ready to retire and join the Monday Night Football broadcast team, new comments from Cowboys owner Jerry Jones say his tight end has nothing decided yet. 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 also told me he is going to need some more time for consideration, at least through the weekend". No decision has been made yet about is future, but it will be interesting to see how he does in the both.

The news on the second day of the draft could affect Dallas' plans just a week after Witten suggested he might play until he was 40 and meant to return this coming season.

The 49ers have traded right tackle Trent Brown to the Patriots, a day after drafting Mike McGlinchey as his replacement. The team had a checklist of things to accomplish and as we sit through their first three picks, it is hard to ask for much more than what they've pulled off.

Background from SportsDay contributor Dane Brugler's draft guide: A four-star tight end recruit out of high school, Dalton Schultz helped lead Bingham to an undefeated 2013 season (14-0) and 5A state title with 31 catches for 512 yards and nine touchdowns as a senior - high school teammates with Utah defensive tackle Lowell Lotulelei.

Executive vice president Stephen Jones has expressed confidence in the other three tight ends on the roster: Geoff Swaim, Blake Jarwin and former Baylor basketball player Rico Gathers.

Brown is entering the final year of his contract and San Francisco drafted McGlinchey ninth overall to take his role. The Cowboys signed Romo, an undrafted free agent out of Eastern Illinois, that same year. He has 181 tackles, nine passes defensed, 3½ sacks, two interceptions and one forced fumble in 39 games. Gathers hasn't played a regular-season game in two seasons, missing all of past year after sustaining a concussion in training camp.
