Witten, 36, is leaving ESPN’s Monday Night Football broadcast and returning to the Dallas Cowboys less than a year after announcing his retirement.

Witten released a statement on why he decided to return to the game. He said that he has a fire burning inside of him to play this game.

He added by saying the Cowboys have some young talent and he would like to help them make a run for a national championship.

With Witten already boasting a Hall of Fame career, with several All-Pro and Pro Bowl appearances, there’s not much for Witten to accomplish if it’s not in hopes of winning a championship.
