Tony Romo believes team-mate Jason Witten might just be the best Cowboy of all-time.
The Dallas Cowboys quarterback spoke with Seattle-area media on Wednesday ahead of Sunday’s game against the Seahawks at Century Link Stadium.
And despite the team failing to make the playoffs since 2009, Romo has handed out some huge praise to Witten after he became the third tight end in NFL history to surpass 10,000 receiving yards in last weekend’s victory over the Houston Texans.
He might be the best Dallas Cowboy of all time.
“Literally, his career has been exceptional. He’s hit every mark you could ever have, and he’s going to go down as the first- or second-greatest tight end of all time.
“I’ve just been lucky enough to play with him.”
Witten is also the Cowboys’ all-time leader in receptions with 898 and joined Romo in the NFL in 2003.
But neither have a Super Bowl trophy – the one thing you would expect Witten may need to really cement his place as one of the great Cowboys alongside Troy Aikman, Roger Staubach, Randy White and many more.
