Reporters questioned All-Pro elite tight end Jason Witten for about seven minutes yesterday after practice. During the interview, he talks about how seeing Michael Strahan at practice made him sick. It made us sick, too Jason. He also said he thought about keeping him out of practice so he wouldn’t tell his friends in New York about his observations. You can watch the video here.
Yes, Strahan’s appearance is very suspicious to say the least. His new career as a sports analyst doesn’t mean he has to show up at important Dallas Cowboys practices. The league should investigate his visit, and ensure he did not record anything. The New England Patriots set a sneaky cheating precedent in this league, and Strahan needs to prove he did not record anything.
Witten also discusses comparisons to Jay Novacek and the progression of the Cowboys offense. There is also a 20-minute interview with Witten here. I have to tell you, after listening to Witten, he just oozes with intelligence. How anyone can argue he is not the best tight end in the NFL is beyond me. In the second interview, Witten admits he has not spoken much to rookie tight end Martellus Bennett. He said he is purposely leaving him alone to allow him to learn the game.
“He is going to have to play and be a big part of this so he needs to continue to grow and fight through training camp,” Witten said.
Witten says he does not think his role will be bigger this year. He admits that Terrell Owens is the number one target, and he will remain that. Witten benefits from double coverage on Owens, and he admitted that.
Off subject, but mentioned in the interview is that Terry Glenn is still available, and it was quickly mentioned that the Cowboys may resign him if the Miami Dolphins decides otherwise.
