Tight Ends

By Brad Adams

Where they stand:
#82 Jason Witten
#80 Martellus Bennett (FA)
#89 John Phillips

2011 Review: Jason Witten was great as always. Despite his numbers being down, he still led the team in catches with 79 and receiving yards with 942.
     Martellus Bennett was just a disappointment. You can just tell he doesn't want to be here. He doesn't like the way he's being used, and its obvious that he will not be back next year.
    John Phillips, had a decent season. It's hard to tell what he will become, but it will be fun to see if he can develop into a solid tight end.

Top Free Agents: Jermichael Finley(GB), Marcedes Lewis(JAX), Visanthe Shiancoe(MIN), John Carlson(SEA)

Top Draft Prospects: Coby Fleener(Stan)Dwayne Allen(Clem) Orson Charles(UGA) Ladarius Green(LA-Lafe) Michael Egnew(MIZZ)

What should they do?: Jason Witten is entering his 10th season in the league. It's amazing isn't it? By no means is it his time to go. He is still playing at a high level. But as with all great things, his time will come to an end soon. The Cowboys need to be ready for that. There is no reason to get a tight end in free agency. It's to stacked of a market, and they'll want big money. If Jerry decides to get a tight end this off-season, he needs to get one through the draft. There are a few good tight ends in the draft such as, Ladarius Green and Michael Egnew, that are worth looking at.
