Summary

In a few years Jason Witten is going to waltz into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He ranks 2nd all-time among TEs in receptions (943) and yards (10,502), behind the legendary Tony Gonzalez. In spite of his impeccable resume, Witten's on-the-field work isn't done. Coming off a playoff run that fell one play short of the NFC Championship Game, Witten remains Tony Romo's most trusted outlet on short- and intermediate routes. Statistically Witten took a step back in 2014 (60 receptions for 703 yards and 5 touchdowns), but the underlying skills remain. Witten's 11.0 yards per reception and 71% catch rate are in-line with his career marks. With the Cowboys running game likely taking a step back with DeMarco Murray's departure, it shouldn't surprise if Witten's 2015 looks more like his 2013 box score than last year's. (May 16)
