TIGHT ENDS: Starter -- Jason Witten. Backups -- Anthony Fasano, Tony Curtis, Adam Berger, Andy Thorn, Rodney Hannah.
What's not to like about Jason Witten? He has caught at least 60 passes in each of the last three years and is a three-time Pro Bowler.
Last season he caught 64 passes for 754 yards.
However his focus for 2007 is getting into the end zone more than the one time he made it all of 2006. He will be helped by a change in offensive philosophy, as coordinator Jason Garrett will make an attempt to get him the ball in the red zone.
Witten was signed last summer to a seven-year deal worth $29 million, meaning he'll probably end his career a Dallas Cowboy.
The Cowboys won't use the two-tight end offense as much as they did last year so it will be make for a diminished role for backup Anthony Fasano.
Fasano, a second round draft pick a year ago out of Notre Dame, closed out a good rookie season with 14 catches for 126 yards.
Given the change in offensive style, look for the Cowboys to carry as many tight ends on the regular season roster, which isn't good for hopefuls like Thorn, Hannah and Berger.
Look for Tony Curtis to land as the third tight end. Curtis, an undrafted free agent out of Portland State, has spend time in NFL Europe and played in four games last season.
