When Jason Witten finally waded through the long lines of well-wishers and started his retirement press conference at the Cowboys’ facility on Thursday, he opened by telling a story about his first coach in the NFL.
Given that review of his career, it’s little surprise that Parcells also said that he expects Witten to join him in the Pro Football Hall of Fame at some point in the future.
Mayfield spent most of this weekend’s rookie minicamp working from under center, probably more snaps than he took in college while in the shotgun formation.

That is Keith Tkachuk Youth jersey the way it should be because I can play out of the ‘gun. Everybody here knows that. We are going to hammer that and we are going to work on what I need to work on so that we can go from there.

There were a few faulty exchanges on his first day, less as the minicamp went along. It’s not remotely close to a deal-breaking concern, but it is something he’ll have to adapt to at the NFL level, and getting a clean exchange and drop-back will be important since he’s (in case you missed it) not the tallest quarterback in the draft.
It’s not that the Browns aren’t going to put him in the shotgun, but this is the time of year for learning new things, and it’s one of the ones Mayfield will have to get used to.
The Ravens traded up and selected Jackson with the final pick of the first round. The former Louisville superstar might not have been the first quarterback selected, but he’s certainly the most exciting.
Jackson, whose athletic ability will bring back memories of Michael Vick, racked up 4,132 yards and 50 touchdowns on 655 carries during 38 games at Louisville. He’s far from being the most effective thrower, but he is probably a bit underrated at this point. He completed 59 percent of his passes last season, but his 10.5 aDOT was on the high side, and yet he was off target on only 9.7 percent of his throws.
