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)

Cowboys | Five more years for Jason Witten? (Sun May 17, 08:24 PM) - Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten said Sunday, May 17, that he and QB Tony Romo could play four or five more years if they continue to play like they did last season.

Our View: We'll pump the brakes on this. Witten is entering his 13th season, and he's not quite the same player he used to be. He should still be able to put up top-10 fantasy tight end numbers this season, but we're not so sure he can stay with the Cowboys for five more years.
