For sixteen seasons, there has been one man in Big D to play the tight end position like no one ever did for this franchise. There is no question that Jason Witten will go down as one of the best tight ends to ever play the game. His impact, both on and off the field, will be missed.
The Dallas Cowboys do have experience in dealing with Witten being gone, however, which will ease the transition slightly. Two years ago, Witten abruptly retired to try his hand at broadcasting. This year, Witten has moved on to Las Vegas to go where a lot of Cowboys go to end their career, as a Raider.
As far as who is here, Dallas will largely rely on Jarwin to handle the riggers of the position. We are about to find out if he is capable as the previous coaching staff was reluctant, at best, to give him many opportunities. Jarwin did have one ridiculous game to end the season the last time Witten was gone.
Aside from that game though, he only has three others with four or more catches. Schultz will get some more opportunities as well with Bell being more of your traditional blocking tight end. Still, this is clearly the weakest position on the Cowboys offense and maybe the entire team.
