Jason Wittenofficially made it official Thursday, and when future Hall of Famers make the call to hang it up, the NFL community knows how to pay their respects.
See how players and coaches from around the league responded to the Dallas Cowboys legend retiring Thursday.
Witt, Mr. Dependable. Thank you for taking me under your wing as a rookie and showing me the way. For helping fight the battles on and off the field, I appreciate you. This next chapter of life will be even better if you can imagine that 🙂. Cheers #CowboysNation pic.twitter.com/8H6FfYnlUB— D-Ware (@DeMarcusWare) May 3, 2018

Since meeting @JasonWitten on my recruiting visit as a HS senior, he has been the TE I have most admired and modeled my approach after. Congrats on HOF career. https://t.co/RqZ78VwAkM— Greg Olsen (@gregolsen88) May 3, 2018

For my money no one played TE better. It was getting a PhD in coverage everyday at practice against him. All the clips are of catches, but what separates Witt was his total package. Great blocker, terrific teammate, Better Man. 15 strong years. Enjoy the booth. C ya in Canton. https://t.co/EvNKXyzugL— Bobby Carpenter (@Bcarp3) May 3, 2018
