Jason Witten catch a sign of Scott Linehan's creativity

IRVING, Texas -- Last week Jason Witten's blocking on Dez Bryant's 68-yard touchdown against the St. Louis Rams brought extra attention. In the win against the New Orleans Saints, it is a critical third-down catch in the fourth quarter by Witten that brings extra attention. Witten has said thousands of times one of the best feelings is making a play when everybody in the stands and on the sideline knows the ball is coming to you, like Troy Aikman to Jay Novacek in the 1990s.

Jason Witten: Cowboys are ‘building something’; DeMarco Murray: Everyone’s on same page

ARLINGTON — There was no mistaking the importance of Sunday night’s victory in the Dallas Cowboys locker room. Tight end Jason Witten said it was louder than it’s been in a while after their 38-17 win over New Orleans. “It’s …

Jason Witten has best game to date - Jason Witten (TE) Dallas Cowboys

Jason Witten caught five passes for 61 yards in Week 4 against the Saints.

Jason Witten is on NBC’s Football Night in America tonight. Here this afternoon is how it will go down.

He’ll be interviewed by Josh Elliott. Here’s how it goes. (Note: A core element of Jason Witten’s SCORE Foundation is the prevention of domestic violence. In 2012, Witten was named the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year, which is …

Cowboys' Jason Witten upset dunk banned, too (wink, wink)

IRVING, Texas – New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham was upset when the NFL outlawed his touchdown celebration this offseason. No more can Graham dunk the ball over the goal post. Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten was just as upset. Well, sort of. “I was building up to do it,” Witten said. “I would love to say I have too much class for that, but I think more than that I’m afraid that I’d get stuffed at the goalposts.

Witten plays big role in commitment to run

IRVING, Texas – The franchise’s all-time leading receiver is the volunteer spokesman for the Valley Ranch Commitment to the Run campaign. Jason Witten, who has the second-most catches in NFL history among tight ends, has consistently and enthusiastically stressed the importance of the previously pass-happy Dallas Cowboys’ transformation into a smashmouth team. “It’s just a good winning formula for football,” Witten said.

Cowboys' Jason Witten, Dez Bryant inspired by Derek Jeter's dedication

IRVING, Texas – Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten and wide receiver Dez Bryant have only cursory ties to Derek Jeter, but will be paying attention to the New York Yankees shortstop’s final few days in the game. Jeter is scheduled to make his final Yankee Stadium appearance Thursday night, then a final series against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park, wrapping up a 20-year career. During an off day in training camp in 2013, Witten and DeMarcus Ware were able spend time with the New York Yankees.

On Bryant TD, Witten's blocking shines

IRVING, Texas – One of the results of the Dallas Cowboys becoming more of a running team is the effect it has had on Jason Witten’s receptions. Through three games Witten has 10 catches for 95 yards. It’s not exactly panic time. In 2012 he had just eight catches in the first three games for 76 yards and he finished the year with an NFL record for a tight end with 110 catches. Those Cowboys were not built like these Cowboys, so don’t expect Witten to reach that sort of level in 2014.

5 Plays that shaped the Cowboys' 34-31 win

IRVING, Texas -- There were 124 plays in the Cowboys' 34-31 come-from-behind win over the St. Louis Rams. They weren't all created equal. It's never that way. While the touchdowns and interceptions get most of the attention, who wins or loses is often determined by plays that get lost in shadow of those that command the most attention. Here are five plays that shaped the Cowboys' win: Play: Jason Witten reception Situation: Third-and-3 from Dallas 27 Score: St.

Jason Garrett: Jason Witten is the ‘most complete tight end in football and has been for the last 10 years’

IRVING – Jason Witten has 10 receptions for 95 yards and no touchdowns through the first three games this season. No tight end in NFL history has caught more passes in a single season than Witten. He’s used to putting …

Jason Witten not worried about his numbers

IRVING, Texas -- Jason Witten received a game ball for Sunday’s win over the Tennessee Titans, along with the rest of the offensive line that paved the way for the Dallas Cowboys to pound away for 220 rushing yards.  Witten has only six catches for 46 yards in two games, but the franchise’s all-time leading receiver isn’t sweating his individual statistics. “Our focus is trying to create that identity of a running football team,” Witten said.

Jason Witten makes big pass breakup

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten has 885 catches in a career that one day could lead him to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. If that day comes, he won’t talk about his pass breakup in Sunday’s 26-10 win against the Tennessee Titans. It was, however, one of the Cowboys’ most critical plays in winning their first game of the season. With the Titans bringing a heavy blitz up the middle, Tony Romo attempted to float a pass to Witten just past the line of scrimmage, but it was a little high and nearly fell into the arms of safety Bernard Pollard.

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten returns to his home state for only his second pro game in Tennessee

IRVING — Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is in his 12th NFL season, so it’s hard to find a road game that means more than another for him. But this week is different. Witten grew up in Elizabethton, Tenn., …

Jason Witten preps for homecoming

IRVING, Texas -- Jason Witten grew up in Elizabethton, Tennessee, and went to the University of Tennessee. He has been a member of the Dallas Cowboys since 2003, but he remains very much a Tennessean. Witten will be heading home Sunday when the Cowboys take on the Tennessee Titans in Nashville for what will be just the second time -- and possibly final time -- in his career. He caught two passes for 19 yards in the Cowboys’ 45-14 win on Oct.

Witten calls Rice's actions 'unacceptable'

IRVING, Texas -- Growing up, Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten saw the effects of domestic violence first hand in his family. The Ray Rice video that surfaced this week and the ensuing talk about what the NFL knew or didn't know and when it did or didn't know it has raised the talk about domestic violence not just in the league but in the country. "That's unacceptable, not only in the NFL and as professional athletes, but just as men in this world," said Witten, who was named the 2012 Walter Payton Man of the Year for his off-field work.
