As Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten approaches the back-end of his career, he’s motivated to make sure that he one day retires with a Super Bowl ring on his finger.
“It goes fast and I will be damned if I let this opportunity slip away and not come away with a championship,” Witten said, per the Dallas Morning News. “It has been a heck of a run. But it’s time we grab it. That goes for all of us, the core group of us. That is what coach [Jason] Garrett has talked about. This group is trying to do it.”
Witten knows that talking about winning doesn’t mean anything, the Cowboys need to prove themselves on the field.
“Our actions have to speak louder than our words. None of y’all are believing it. Why should you be?” Witten said. “The approach we are taking is if we are going to be the team we think we can we have to go show it. What a great opportunity we got coming up September 5. So that’s the focus of this team.”
