The Dallas Cowboys broadcast network toured Neyland Stadium on Monday. The organization is apparently working on a Jason Witten feature.

Witten was a standout tight end for the Vols from 2000-2002, before being drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the third round of the 2003 NFL Draft.
While at Tennessee, Witten accumulated seven touchdowns and 797 yards on 68 receptions. He earned All-SEC and All-American honors in 2002.
Since leaving Tennessee, the former Vol tight end has had an NFL career that has seen him make nine Pro-Bowls and be named the NFL alumni tight end of the year on three occasions.
There’s no doubt that Jason Witten is a future NFL hall of famer. He’s one of the first names mentioned anytime there’s a conversation about former Vols in the NFL.
The East Tennessee native is now second all-time on the receptions by a tight end list, which is likely where he’ll finish his career as he’s more than 500 behind Tony Gonzalez.
