Not Roger Staubach; not Emmitt Smith; not Tony Dorsett; not Michael Irvin or Randy White. Nope.

The brightest star in Cowboys history very well might be tight end Jason Witten, according to his quarterback.

"He may be the best Dallas Cowboy of all time," Tony Romo said on a conference call Wednesday in preparation for Sunday's game in Seattle, according to NFL.com .

Witten needs 1,890 yards to pass Irvin as Dallas' all-time leading receiver, but the tight end already has 148 more receptions (898) than the former wideout — by far the most catches in Cowboys history.
