Jason Witten Named No. 41 on NFL's Top 100

Former Tennessee star tight end Jason Witten was named No. 41 on the NFL's list of Top 100 players, up from No. 75 last year. Check out this video feature on Witten, which was revealed on Thursday night. 


Last season, Witten posted the most productive season by a tight end in NFL history, recording 110 catches to break the single-season record of 102 set by Tony Gonzalez in 2004. He also finished with 1,039 receiving yards and three touchdowns en route to earning his eighth Pro Bowl selection in 10 NFL seasons with the Dallas Cowboys.

Witten's 806 career receptions and 8,949 career receiving yards both ranks as the third most by an NFL tight end. He has been named the recipient of the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award in each of the past two seasons. The award is based on a player's community service, as well as excellence on the field. Witten is the only player to earn the honors twice.
