ESPN said, "Witten planned to meet with owner and general manager Jerry Jones on Friday before making the move official". Jones said he'd have several conversations with Witten this week and indicated the franchise leader in games, catches and yards receiving hadn't made a final decision.
The decision by Witten would mean the lead analyst job at all three networks will be held by former players who spent their entire careers with the Cowboys. James Hanna (knee) was placed on the reserve/retired list; the Cowboys still have Geoff Swaim, Blake Jarwin and Rico Gathers under contract.
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.
He also owns National Football League records for the most receptions in a single season by a tight end (110 in 2012) and most receptions in a single game by a tight end (18 in 2012). If he does retire, he career stats have been more than impressive.

Witten quickly became one of Bill Parcells' favorites, earning the Hall of Fame coach's favor by missing just one game as a rookie, despite a broken jaw.
But honestly, the Dallas Cowboys will never find a player like Jason Witten.
It was the first sign of Witten's legendary toughness.
The NFL says Thursday's first round of the draft had the second-largest viewership ever for an opening night. "He's really a tough guy, he's an fantastic guy and we're lucky to have him". ESPN's Chris Mortensen broke the report. Witten turns 36 early next month. He and his wife, Michelle, have four young children. He's made 11 Pro Bowls and was named Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year in 2012.
