Jason Witten's broadcasting career has last less than a calendar year as the veteran tight-end has elected to leave ESPN's "Monday Night Football" in favor of a return to the NFL with the Dallas Cowboys.

"The fire inside of me to compete and play this game is just burning too strong," the tight end said in a statement, via the Cowboys' official website. "This team has a great group of rising young stars, and I want to help them make a run at a championship. This was completely my decision, and I am very comfortable with it. I'm looking forward to getting back in the dirt."

The 36 year old Witten was reportedly wooed by a $5 million incentive from the Cowboys and well... you know the old saying... "money talks."

Witten has 1,152 career catches for 12,488 yards and 68 touchdowns. He ranks fourth all-time in NFL career receptions behind Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice (1,549), Hall of Fame tight end Tony Gonzalez (1,325) and Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (1,303).
