Bill Parcells: Jason Witten is what National Football League is supposed to be

Redskins, NFC East remain uninterested in free-agent WR Dez Bryant

He's in that ' Hall of Very Good.' He played 15 years and missed 1 game.

"Jason Witten is what pro football is supposed to be about", Bill Parcells, who was the head coach in Dallas for four seasons from 2003-06, told ESPN. "Not every player is going to be able to step in to a primetime spot right away".

Tennessee Director of Athletics Phillip Fulmer coached Witten at UT and famously had the Elizabethton, Tenn., native switch to tight end during his freshman season after beginning his career as a defensive end.

Dallas will clearly rely heavily on the ground game with Zeke Elliot back, but if Dak Prescott, who struggled last season with Bryant and Witten is constantly looking for reliable receivers, it will indeed be a long season for the Cowboys. Additionally, his 12,448 receiving yards rank first in Cowboys history and second most amongst tight ends in the history of the NFL.

"The day I found out Jason Witten may retire, it was on my Witten's first birthday last Friday", she said.

Tony Romo and Jason Witten celebrate after scoring a touchdown against the New Orleans Saints on September 28, 2014. Modeled after the NFL's Walter Payton Award, it recognizes college players who demonstrate exemplary leadership both on and off the field. Witten is as much of a "Parcells Guy" as any member of the New York Giants, New England Patriots and New York Jets.

"Jason Witten was the ultimate pro", fellow VFL and National Football League legend Peyton Manning said Thursday. Two of his younger teammates in particular wanted to let him know how special he's been to play with in Dallas.

"When I look at where we were with the great legacy of our fans that have had 56 years of being around some of the greatest people and names of players ever.to me, no one has ever given more of himself and no one has ever made any bigger impact".

"I'm proud to be his friend and proud to be a fellow Tennessee Vol alongside him". This next chapter of life will be even better if you can imagine that.

At the end of the 2017 season, Witten had said, "Oh, I'm coming back". Only tight end Tony Gonzalez appeared in more Pro Bowls as a tight end than Witten with 14. UCF's Shaquem Griffin was named the inaugural victor of the award in February.
