Is Jason Witten the best Dallas Cowboy of All-Time?
Tony Romo talked with Seattle Seahawks media this week and boy did he give Jason Witten some major praise according to ESPN Dallas.
“He might be the best Dallas Cowboy of all time,” Romo said of Witten. “Literally, his career has been exceptional. He’s hit every mark you could ever have, and he’s going to go down as the first- or second-greatest tight end of all time. I’ve just been lucky enough to play with him.”
Witten became the third tight end in NFL history to surpass 10,000 receiving yards in the Cowboys’ victory over the Texans last Sunday, joining Tony Gonzalez (15,127) and Shannon Sharpe (10,060). Witten, whose career yardage total stands at 10,014, is the Cowboys’ all-time leader in receptions with 898. Only former Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin, one of those 11 Hall of Fame players, has more receiving yards (11,904)
The Cowboys have 14 players in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, but can we say Witten is better than Emmitt?
