Dude gets to close it out and hang up the cleats with the Cowboys. Good for him

Funny, the last extension that Witten signed in 2011 was supposed to be the one that allowed him to retire with the Cowboys. Now we're talking about this extension being the one that allows him to retire with Dallas lol. Some things never change

Damn, the old man can still run crisp, clear routes at age 34. He also seems like a good presence in the locker room.

Good for Dallas to keep him around.

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

But he made due and he's built himself a great HOF career.. But no way is he in my top 5 TE's of all time.. He's a great player.. But watching him play i never saw that wow.. His resume speaks for itself though.. Special accomplishments, Just not my cup of tea.


Gronk
Kellen Winslow
Tony G
Antonio Gates
Shannon Sharpe..


Those players are all better TEs at receiving, but all around (blocking) Witten should be in that debate.

Witten was good at routes and fast through his cuts, but definitely had no RAC ability other than barreling through players "tank style"

Well he cant get any slower. But he will always be fast enough to convert a 3rd down against the Giants.. Laughing


OUCH ! Very Happy

That whole run should've been negated when his helmet came off.

Still a hell of a play, though.

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.

Witten's work as a pass catcher is, if anything, very underrated. Never a gaudy receiving TE? He's had 4 seasons over 1,000 yards. Another 3 over 900. In 223 games.

Tony Gonzalez - 4 over 1000, 5 over 900 in 16 seasons/270 games.

What sort of numbers do people think receiving TE's consistently put up? If anything, (healthy) Gronkowski is the only guy I've at the position you could count on to consistently put up 1,000+ yards. And he has Tom Brady throwing it to him and about as much stability as you could ask for on top of being a transcendental talent.

Wasn't that a recent rule change? Could be wrong.

Looks like he intentionally rolled to his left so the cheerleader would be on top of him and therefore undamaged. What a stand up classy guy Cool
