VFL Witten Headed To Ninth Pro Bowl

Former Tennessee star and Elizabethton native Jason Witten is headed back to the Pro Bowl for the ninth time in 11 years. The tight end will be a replacement for the Broncos' Julius Thomas, who will be playing in the Super Bowl. 

It will be Witten's ninth Pro Bowl in 11 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys.

Witten started all 16 games this year for the Cowboys and played in all 16 games for the 10th straight season. He finished with 73 catches for 851 yards and eight touchdowns, which marked his second-highest touchdown total of his career behind only the nine he scored in 2010.

He finished the 2013 season placing fifth in catches and yards and tied for fourth in touchdowns among all tight ends around the league.

Witten made the Pro Bowl every year from 2004-2010 and made the Pro Bowl after the 2012 season, in which he recorded a career-high 110 catches. All the other three Cowboys will be going to the Pro Bowl for the first time.

In 2014, Witten joins Vols Eric Berry and Cordarelle Patterson in the Pro Bowl game. Peyton Manning was selected, but he will play in the Super Bowl.
