While Griffin should have a chance to earn a roster spot and possibly even the starting job, his concussion history—his second one of 2017 landed him on injured reserve—has to be a concern.

“He’s presented with a heck of an opportunity,” Aikman said. “Yeah, he could play another year, maybe another couple of years. But this opportunity to go into broadcasting and continue with a really great career post-career is pretty exciting. So, that’s a decision that he has to make as to what’s most important to him.”
Romo became one of the best in the profession from the start last year, and he expects Witten to do the same.
“Jason Witten will do good at whatever he does,” Romo said. “Ultimately, whatever he puts his mind to, he’s going to be good at it. Even if he didn’t start out too good, he’s going to be good. I actually expect him to start off really good, but it really wouldn’t matter. It would only be a matter of time before he excelled at it. Like all walks of life, he’ll figure it out.”
