Tight end Jason Witten set the tone of training camp when he arrived in Oxnard, saying it’s time for the Cowboys to have a new championship ending to the season and it can’t be the same old story again.
He was equally defiant about his own career. Witten said it seems like yesterday when he joined the Cowboys as a third round pick in 2003.
Time has flown by and while Witten has put together a potential Hall of Fame career with seven Pro Bowl bids and more receptions than all but two tight ends in NFL history, he said his career would be incomplete without a title. And he’ll be damned if let that happen.
“It goes fast and I will be damned if I let this opportunity slip and not come away with a championship,” Witten said. “It has been a heck of a run. But it’s time we grab it.”
