Jason Witten has plenty to brag about throughout his future NFL Hall of Fame career. And he just added another highlight to his bragging rights on Sunday.
The former Vol tight end reeled in a one-handed touchdown grab on Sunday afternoon as the Dallas Cowboys played the San Francisco 49ers in San Francisco.
The Cowboys led 14-3 in the second quarter and were 18 yards away from the end zone. Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott dropped back and threw a strike to the corner of the end zone and found Witten in stride. Witten pulled down the pass with one hand, and he made it look easy:
