Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is still impossible to cover.
Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is well past his prime, but it hasn’t stopped him from competing in the game he loves.
A third-round pick in 2003, Witten is entering his 15th season in the NFL, and despite being 35 years old and having lost a step, the tight end is still just as crafty as ever.
Yesterday, he absolutely embarrassed linebacker Mark Nzeocha in a one-on-one drill.

But he wasn’t done.
He then went on to shake All-Pro linebacker Sean Lee:

So yeah, Witten might not be the force he once was, but he’s still an effective route-runner, and he’ll always be a safety valve for his quarterback. He’ll get plenty of looks this season from Dak Prescott on third down.
