Data Points: Witten third on TE receptions list

Jason Witten still has a long way to go to catch Tony Gonzalez, the NFL record-holder for career receptions by a tight end, but the Cowboys TE does deserve congratulations for passing Hall of Famer Ozzie Newsome on Sunday to move into third on the all-time list. In his ninth season, Witten currently has 666 career receptions.

With Gonzalez at the top of the list, Witten third and Antonio Gates fifth, that means three of the top five pass-catching tight ends in NFL history are currently active. the other two, Newsome and Shannon Sharpe, are in the Hall of Fame.
