It may be hard to believe at first glance, but former Dallas Cowboys star and now-former ESPN "Monday Night Football" commentator, Jason Witten, is officially coming out of retirement to play for the Cowboys once again next season. 


But he might not be the only former Cowboys star coming back in 2019. 


News of Witten's return inspired his old Cowboys teammate, DeMarcus Ware, to consider making the transition back to the field from retirement as well.

At least he made light of potentially doing so.


Ware hasn't played an NFL game since 2016 while Witten took just one season off, but that's not to say the pair were obsolete in their final NFL seasons. Especially after Ware joked about feeling better than he has in a while when pondering a return to the league Thursday. Ware completed his final NFL season in Denver with 4.0 sacks and 15 total tackles. 

However, unlike Witten, who last walked away from the game under his own terms, Ware's last NFL season was cut short by a back injury and reparative surgery.


While Witten is returning from a criticized short stay in the commentators' booth for a 2019 NFL comeback campaign, Ware is highly unlikely to actually be wearing a Cowboys uniform during an NFL game anytime soon.
