Surprising, considering his age and lack of athleticism at this point.


Whats surprising. IS that even at his age he still has shown more durability then both Graham and Gronk. And they are younger and far more fit.


Gotta have a hamstring to pull a hamstring.

Just kidding. Witten, even though about the same size, does seem built differently. More compact. Maybe it is torso size or my imagination.

Witten is just one of those guys that knows how to stay healthy and preserve himself. I used to think injuries had to do with luck, but I really do think some guys are just built better and know how to play to avoid injury.


I'm with you except Witten definitely doesn't avoid contact. I don't even think he's capable of a juke. He probably has more scar tissue in his body then healthy tissue. Just one hell of a football player. Old school toughness. Never the glamorous gaudy receiving numbers tight end but sure fire hall of famer and you wish you could have a whole team full of guys with his work ethic.


He knows how to get tackled gently.



In a weird way, this is completely true. His body hitting the floor fundamentals are exceptional. How about we just say he knows how to absorb hits? It's definitely a skill....

I remember the Raiders drafted a big WR (Teyo Johnson pick 63) and moved him to TE that draft before Witten pick 69 was taken. UGH...
