Jason Witten will make his long-awaited return to AT&T Stadium on Monday, November 5th, 2018 when he works his first Dallas Cowboys game as a the color analyst for Monday Night Football. Coincidentally, and amazingly, it will happen on the one-year anniversary of when Tony Romo returned for his first time a season ago.
The Cowboys are sort of getting used to welcoming their former stars that have ascended to the booth. It provides for a weird sort of situation with them calling games for the team they just played on, but that weirdness quickly fades into fun and intrigue.
When Tony Romo returned on November 5th, 2017 for the Cowboys home date against the Kansas City Chiefs he was treated to banners in the endzone and a special welcome home video that was narrated by Jason Witten himself.

Our own Danny Phantom speculated as to whether or not Tony Romo will return the favor and narrate Jason Witten’s video, but we’ll have to wait until Monday night to find that out. One thing we don’t have to wait for is to see what Jason Witten’s banner looks like. It’s very similar to Tony Romo’s, just with the name, number, and new place of work altered.

Monday night will definitely be emotional. Let’s hope it results in a win, too.
