    DALLAS COWBOYS' JASON WITTEN BELIEVES MARTELLUS BENNETT IS PERFECT MATCH FOR GIANTS' OFFENSE

    "When the New York
    Giants signed former Dallas Cowboys tight end Martellus Bennett, it was met with a lot of cautious
    optimism. Could he get his head on straight and succeed in the Big Apple? Can he
    get his career back on track with a change of scenery? Are his best days still
    ahead of him?


    To all of those questions, current Cowboys TE Jason Witten says, emphatically, yes.

    He fits that offense in a lot of ways. I think his confidence was probably
    shaken a little bit in Dallas. Few plays, his numbers were limited, so I’m sure
    that’s a part of it," Witten said. "He’s a good blocker, he’s a good underneath
    route runner and he’s big so he can catch the ball. I think, more than anything,
    getting his confidence back and getting a fresh start will do a lot for his
    career. Definitely a lot of upside.”




    It's not just Bennett's potential in which Witten has confidence; it's the
    ability of Giants tight end coach Mike Pope, who many believe is the best in the
    business, to get the most out of his players.





    “Ultimately, when I found out he was going to the Giants, I wished him
    congratulations because I know he kind of fits that power offense and Mike Pope
    is one of the best tight ends coaches there is,” Witten said. “Anybody who plays
    the position knows that about him. He does a good job of eliminating
    distractions and allowing his players to be the best. I think he’s done that for
    many, many years, going back to (Jeremy) Shockey and taking a guy like (Jake)
    Ballard who’s undrafted and getting him to play at a high
    level."




    Witten, who plays the Giants twice per year, added that between Pope and head
    coach Tom Coughlin there is zero tolerance for outside distraction. It's that
    sort of discipline he feels Bennett needs to elevate to the next level; to reach
    his full potential.




    In 60 career games, all with Dallas, Bennett has 85 receptions for 846 yards and four
    touchdowns."

      I like Witten. Great guy on and off the field. I also agree with him 100%. I think Martellus will show us what Dallas was expecting him to do.
