Future Hall of Fame tight end Jason Witten is not going to be atop anyone’s list of broadcasters. The dude has struggled big time in his first season in the booth for ESPN. In fact, Witten has become the butt of all jokes around the NFL community.
That didn’t change during the 2019 Pro Bowl in Orlando. On the call for the meaningless exhibition game, it did not take Witten long to put his foot in his mouth.
Just check out Witten analyzing the game’s first touchdown — a pass from Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes to Indianapolis Colts tight end Eric Ebron.

“Ebron was his (Mahomes) guy all year,” Witten said.
The issue here is that Ebron caught passes from Colts quarterback Andrew Luck while Travis Kelce was hauling in scores from Mahomes in Kansas City.
