Jimmy Graham says Cowboys TE Jason Witten is his “Idol”

jason wittenThis week at the Pro Bowl, Jimmy Graham will get to be on the same field as his childhood hero.  Graham was like a little kid when he approached Jason Witten at the All Star event. 

“The first thing I told him is, you know, he’s my idol and he always has been,” Graham said. “I try to emulate everything he does on the field and off the field. Not only does he do everything right on the field, and he’s been consistent for the past forever, but he does so much in his community. So I’ve tried to emulate myself just like him as a man, just because of the type of individual he is. He is what I know I will be or what I try to be each and every year,” Graham said. “And I strive to be the type of tight end that he is.”

This is a pretty cool story, even though they played in Pro Bowls before I like stories like this.
