Witten is Dallas' leader.
The only reason wide receiver isn’t the Cowboys top-offensive strength is because of their tight ends. The position is led by future Hall of Famer, Jason Witten.
Witten is the most consistent Cowboy on the roster and has been doing it for numerous years. Last year, he compiled one of his best seasons—accumulating 110 catches for more than 1,000 yards and three scores.
Witten is a class act, and one of the most important leaders on the team.
Behind Witten are two promising youngsters. James Hanna was the third tight end in 2012, but showed plenty of upside. Although he only caught eight passes all year, seven of them occurred during the final month of the season. Hanna will see a much larger workload next year and become an intricate part of the passing attack.
Another player that will join him is second-round draft pick, Gavin Escobar. He has the size (6’6”, 251 lbs.) and hands to be a monster in the NFL, and Romo’s new go-to guy in the red zone.
Dallas also picked up veteran Dante Rosario from San Diego this summer. He provides solid depth to the position, and someone who can be used for blocking purposes.
All in all, this group will cause plenty of headaches for defensive coordinators around the league.
