Plenty of people have thoughts on the retirement of tight end Jason Witten.

That list now includes former Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant, who was released by Jerrry Jones and the front office last month.

Here's how the former pro bowl wide receiver responded to the news that Witten is hanging up his cleats to take over as a lead analyst for ESPN's "Monday Night Football."

A short while ago, Bryant proclaimed that one of the reasons that he was cut was due to the influence of the "Garrett guys" in the team's locker room. That is presumably a shot at Witten since he has been one of Garrett's staunchest allies

Witten said "there was nothing to that," in response to those accusations.

Bryant's current job outlook is bleak. Last week he turned down a multi-year contract offer from the Baltimore Ravens. On Tuesday, reports stated that a number of teams were not interested in his services at all, even if he signed for the veteran's minimum.

After 15 seasons with the Cowboys, tight end Jason Witten is retiring. Take a look back at his franchise and NFL records, and other career milestones.
