According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Cowboys are set to sign Jason Witten to an five-year, $37 million contract extension that includes $19 million guaranteed.
Witten is set to make $3.641 million plus a $1 million roster bonus in 2012, and this extension will keep him in a Cowboys uniform through 2017. The contract is comparable to the one signed by Antonio Gates last July, with one less year and slightly less guaranteed money. A Jason Garrett favorite and consummate professional, Witten should have no trouble living up to this contract if he can stay healthy. Now 29, this will be the last big payday he sees.
