What's worse for Jason Witten: Going back to the 'MNF' booth or risking CTE?
Jason Witten's tenure with "Monday Night Football" was... not great. The tight end legend's skills on the field did not translate well in the booth, where his long pauses and stammers were regularly apart of the broadcast.
While putting your body through hell to be back in the NFL and risking brain injury is no joke, the embarrassment he went through every Monday during the season was much worse.
No matter how bad Witten was on "Monday Night Football," it is miles better than the kind of punishment he's going to receive when he's back with the Cowboys.
Concussions do irreparable damage to the brain and have shortened the life of former NFL players. Witten could have easily left the booth and launched a coaching career, or literally anything else, where he doesn't put his life at risk. Coming back to football is the wrong choice.
