Darren Woodson: Witten is best ever

His former Cowboys teammate told ESPN's Todd Archer, “You cannot tell me there’s a better tight end to ever play the game. I look at Tony Gonzalez. He wouldn’t block a soul. ... Antonio Gates, turn the film on of him. He won’t touch a soul. You already know Jimmy Graham won’t block anybody. This guy, not only is he a great pass catcher, but he’ll do everything.”
