5 free agent tight ends the Cowboys could target since Jason Witten can't play for ever and ever

5 free agent tight ends the Cowboys could target since Jason Witten can't play for ever and ever

Jason Witten turns 35 in May. His teammate Ezekiel Elliott may call him "Ol' Man Witt," but he's still a "puppy" in real life, as Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has said. But Witten and Dallas fans are coming to terms with the reality that No. 82 is nearing the end of his career. He's at the point he doesn't want to commit to playing after 2017, taking it season-by-season. So when the Cowboys think about the tight end position post-Witt, they currently have James Hanna, 27, and Geoff Swaim, 23, returning, though both are coming off injuries. Gavin Escobar, a second-round draft pick in 2013, will...

NFL writer: Cowboys need to 'resist the temptation' of bringing back entire secondary

The offseason checklist for the Dallas Cowboys has some elements that are agreed upon by the majority of NFL experts. Among them includes figuring out what to do with quarterback Tony Romo.But what's after that?ESPN's Bill Barnwell recently listed five things he thinks Dallas needs to get done (one of which included Romo). The rest include restructuring some contracts, extending Jason Witten, picking up Zack Martin's fifth-year option and to "resist the temptation to bring back all of their secondary.""The Cowboys got surprisingly effective seasons at cornerback from Brandon Carr and Morris...

Will Cowboys finally find Jason Witten's successor? 10 TEs Dallas could target in the NFL draft

Will Cowboys finally find Jason Witten's successor? 10 TEs Dallas could target in the NFL draft

One of the few constants for the Dallas Cowboys for the past 14 years has been tight end Jason Witten. Over that span of time Witten has played in all 16 regular season games 13 times. The one time he didn't wast his rookie year when he only played 15 games. Since joining Dallas in 2003 the Cowboys have drafted eight tight ends, and it still looks like they are looking for Witten's eventual replacement. Gavin Escobar is a free agent. The team also has Geoff Swaim and Rico Gathers (a Baylor basketball player turned tight end) on the roster.Could Jerry Jones & Co. go back to the draft to try...

Will Cowboys’ Jason Witten Call It A Career After 2017 Season?

Will Cowboys’ Jason Witten Call It A Career After 2017 Season?

Jason Witten is in the last year of his contract. Will it also be the last year of his career? A few days ago, in part part 3 of our 10-part series on the Cowboys’ offseason, we speculated on the future of Jason Witten. Plan: Signed through 2017. If Dallas does take another tight end high enough in the draft to be Witten’s replacement, they may have to move on after 2017, when Witten’s contract ends. His cap hit is $12.2 million this year, $4.8 million of which is restructured bonus from continuously converting his salary into signing bonus and stretching it out. Dallas could also...

Jason Witten on his favorite NFL team to beat, being the big brother/grandpa to Dak and Zeke

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten recently joined ThePostGame Podcast with Jeff Eisenband to talk all things football. Here are some highlights:What team do you enjoy beating the most?Witten: I think there's three, and it's Giants, Redskins, and Eagles. It starts with our division. I came into this saying - you realize the rivalry. And each of them is it's own. The rivalry between the Giants is different than the Eagles and Redskins. But I think everybody would say any time you play a division opponent, especially in the NFC East, those are amped up. A lot of energy inside those...

You will freak out over this picture of Jason Witten from his peewee football days

Everyone knows Cowboys tight end Jason Witten as the grizzled veteran of the team. Ezekiel Elliott teased him about his "old man stiff arm" and Witten could only joke and call the rookie "Young Pup."But Witten is trying to get hip, which is why he called himself an old dog trying to learn new tricks when he set up an Instagram account this week. And he's already getting the hang of things judging by this awesome Throwback Thursday picture from Witten's peewee football days.This is too perfect.

Jason Witten: I'd be 'surprised' if Tony Romo doesn't play in 2017; how I'll know it's time to 'get off the train'

Jason Witten and Tony Romo have been close friends and teammates since they joined the Cowboys' 2003 rookie class.So when Romo went down in August, the injury and subsequent quarterback transition was harder for Witten than it was for many of his teammates. He was watching one of his best friends suffer."You never want to see anyone going down the way Tony did," Witten told Sports Illustrated's Chris Burke while in Houston for the Super Bowl. "Certainly for me it was a setback at the time."And Dak came in, played extremely well and I think Tony handled it with class, which speaks a lot to his...
