For my money no one played TE better. It was getting a PhD in coverage everyday at practice against him. All the clips are of catches, but what separates Witt was his total package. Great blocker, terrific teammate, Better Man. 15 strong years. Enjoy the booth. C ya in Canton. https://t.co/EvNKXyzugL
