Oxnard, CA — Jason Witten was taken in the third round a decade ago.
He was the 69th player drafted back then and he's still going strong.
The Cowboys have always been able to count on him, so what keeps him going?
"You understand all you've got is this moment," Witten told KETK. "Grab it. That's where the focus is."
Witten has been to eight Pro Bowls.
He is the Cowboys' all-time leader in receptions.
He's been named the Walter Payton Man of the year.
He does it all on and off the field.
"Coming together, old, young, pro bowlers, you've got to earn it," Witten said. "That's what I'm excited about, why I push myself everyday to try to achieve."
