Dallas Cowboys team captain and 11-time Pro Bowl tight end Jason Witten is standing up for teammate Dez Bryant.

Witten recently joined the J Dub City show on KESN-FM (103.3) ESPN to talk about the Cowboys. Here are some highlights, per the Dallas Morning News.

What's your take on all this Dez Bryant stuff?

Jason Witten: "Look... I think anytime you don't have success, it's easy to make blanket statements. Just look at the stat line -- all of our stats were down. I think we have to be better as a football team and better offensively. I believe Dez is still a premiere wide receiver. That position, I've seen him evolve from a rookie now eight years in. I know he can play this position at a high level, I've seen it in the flesh too many times."
