Jason Witten has quickly let it be known that things have to be different this time.
Only minutes after the Dallas Cowboys' plane landed in California for training camp, the seven-time Pro Bowl tight end said this year "can't be the same old story."
Witten knows he might not have too many more chances to be part of an NFL champion. He is going into his 10th season, matching him with quarterback and good friend Tony Romo as the longest-tenured Cowboys.
Witten says he doesn't want to let the opportunity slip away and not come away with a championship.
The Cowboys had their weekly day off Thursday. That came a day after their first practice in pads.
