Jason Witten was a third round draft pick by the Dallas Cowboys in 2003. Witten is known to be one of the toughest players in the league. He has only missed one game in his NFL career because he has played through many injuries. Jason Witten entered the league the same year that Tony Romo did and they became best friends throughout their careers. Witten holds the record for most receptions in Dallas Cowboys franchise history. He even is 10th on the all time receptions list for the NFL. Witten currently lives in Westlake, Texas near Dallas. Jason is a Christian and he appeared in a video on “I Am Second” where he talks about his faith. Jason Witten launched the SCORE foundation to provide support and assistance for families and individuals affected by domestic violence. Witten also speaks on volunteering and is a big volunteer himself. Jason Witten has become one of the Dallas Cowboys’ best and most reliable players. Every time they need a big play, Jason is the one they go to. Witten is one of Romo’s favorite targets on an important down. It will be a sad day when Witten decides to retire but he will always be remembered by Cowboy fans.
On Tuesday, the Dallas Cowboys signed Alfred Morris, who was a former Redskins running back, to a two-year deal. As of right now, Darren McFadden will still be the starting running back, but Morris will have a crucial role in the running back position as well. During his first three years as a Washington Redskin, Morris rushed for more yards than anybody in the NFL except Marshawn Lynch. The Cowboys expect Alfred Morris to be very productive behind their excellent offensive line. Since the Cowboys picked up a running back, they will most likely not go after Ezekiel Elliot, the running back from Ohio State, in the draft anymore. There are rumors that the Cowboys are looking at free safety Jalen Ramsey from Florida State. The Cowboys lacked success in the secondary the last few years, and they are looking for someone to turn their defense around. Besides a corner back they are also looking at drafting a defensive lineman as well. The Cowboys are in need of players in mainly every position on the defensive side of the ball. I think Morris will be a good fit in the offense for the Cowboys. They need someone to give them that spark to start off the year in a positive way.
