Witten Ranked Second-Best Tight End in the NFL

NFL.com has ranked Jason Witten as the #36 best player in the NFL for 2011.

Five Dallas players have now made the list in the NFL’s Top 100 Players for 2011. The most recent was Jason Witten, who comes in at #36.

He will finish as the second-best tight end in the league behind San Diego’s Antonio Gates, whose position has not yet been revealed. Other tight ends ranked below Witten include Atlanta’s Tony Gonzalez (#46) and Vernon Davis (#88). Surprisingly, Dallas Clark will apparently not make this list.

Witten is also going to finish ranked as the #2 Cowboy on this list. DeMarcus Ware will finish higher (should finish in the top 10), but NFL.com has not announced where he ranks.

Here are the five Cowboys to make the list so far:

36. Jason Witten
57. Andre Gurode
70. Miles Austin
72. Tony Romo
75. Jay Ratliff

Below are Witten’s career stats.
