The Facts: Jason Witten will be back with the Cowboys in 2018, but another one of the team’s tight ends is retiring. The Cowboys confirmed that they are placing James Hanna on the reserve/retired list shortly after Todd Archer of ESPN reported that Hanna, who dealt with knee problems for the last two years, was walking away from the game.
Diehards Line: Hanna joined the Cowboys as a sixth-round pick in 2012 and played in 78 games for the team. He missed the entire 2016 season before returning to play every game last season and ends his career with 37 catches for 374 yards and a touchdown. Witten is now joined by Geoff Swaim, Rico Gathers and Blake Jarwin on the depth chart at tight end.
