Belated apology: Rolando McClain tells Jason Witten he’s sorry for hit that lacerated the Cowboys TE spleen

It’s been nearly two years since tight end Jason Witten suffered a lacerated spleen in a pre-season game against Oakland. Rolando McClain, who was then with the Raiders, delivered that hit for the Raiders. The linebacker never said a word …

Jason Witten: 'We've got to be better'

OXNARD, Calif. -- This season can’t be the same ol’ story. That’s what perennial Pro Bowl tight end Jason Witten, who has all of one playoff win to show for his outstanding 11-year career, said when the Dallas Cowboys arrived for training camp a couple of years ago. Or was it last year? Unfortunately for Witten, the past few years really run together. Those seasons played out exactly the same – an 8-8 finish with the Cowboys falling short with the NFC East title and a playoff berth at stake in Week 17.

The Senator Passed Some Legislation

For anyone who doubts the influence Jason Witten has as a leader of the Dallas Cowboys, this should put that to rest. As OCC documented, the Dallas Cowboys conduct a conditioning test each year to see if the players are indeed in something close to football shape. Normally, that would mean this would be done the day after the players arrive in Oxnard and the day before the first real practice of camp.

Best case/worst case: Gavin Escobar

IRVING, Texas -- In order to break out of their 8-8 doldrums, the Dallas Cowboys will need a lot to go right in 2014. This week we take a best-case, worst-case look at five offensive and defensive players that will go a long way in shaping the Cowboys' season. Gavin Escobar Best-case: He catches 30-35 passes Jason Witten simply doesn't come off the field. He's too valuable to come off the field. He can set the edge in the running game. He can pick up critical first downs, and last year he was finally used in the red zone.

BTB Mailbag: How Long Can The Cowboys Rely On Jason Witten?

Jason Witten has been a mainstay in the Cowboys lineup for a decade. How much longer will "The Senator" continue playing? We recently asked the Blogging The Boys Community to come up with questions for the front page writers. One question that really caught my attention was asked by Mikie, who writes; "how many more years do you think Witten has left? Who has the best chance to take over once he retires?" One of the common bits of wisdom of the modern NFL is that 30 is the magic age when most NFL players hit their decline. Jason Witten is 32 and has played 11 NFL seasons. Depending on...
