NFL Lines – Tony Romo Gets To Keep His Favorite Target

Posted by Marcello Messina on 9/13/2011 1:58:32 PM

Tight end Jason Witten signs a 5-year, $37 million contract extension with the Dallas Cowboys.

2010-11 Season
Dallas Cowboys vs. NFL: 6-10
Dallas Cowboys vs. NFC East: 3-3

The Dallas Cowboys and Jason Witten have agreed on a 5-year contract extension through which Witten will earn $37 million, with $19 million guaranteed. The NFL Lines deal comes only days after nose tackle Jay Ratliff signed a $40 million, 5-year contract extension with the team.

Jason Witten had signed a 7-year deal back in 2006 worth $29.5 million, which would have expired in two years in 2013.

The mammoth 6’6”, 265-lbs tight end is coming off a productive 2010 NFL lines season where he excelled for 94 catches for 1,002 yards, scoring 9 touchdowns in the process. If Witten continues this rate of performance, the 29-year old is on pace to potentially break NFL records for receptions and yards by a tight end.

Witten’s 617 receptions rank second in Cowboys’ history behind Michael Irvin’s 750 and fourth in NFL history among tight ends. His 6,967 yards rank seventh in league history and fifth in the Cowboys’.

I wouldn’t bet against Witten overtaking his rivals and breaking the aforementioned records, as he still has many years left to play. Furthermore, the Cowboys’ tight end has missed only one game in his entire career since being drafted in the third round of the NFL lines Draft in 2003 by the Cowboys. The seven-time Pro Bowler has said time and time again that he would like to play out his entire career with Dallas.

The Dallas Cowboys have made some good moves in locking down both Witten and Ratcliff, especially before the season kicked off, so as to avoid any possible distractions for both key players.
