    Raiders' Jason Witten: Sets NFL record with Raiders

    Jason Witten totaled 13 receptions (on 17 targets) for 69 yards and two touchdowns in 16 games during the 2020 season, though he was not targeted in the Las Vegas Raiders' Week 17 finale against the Broncos.Witten set the NFL record for career games played by a tight end as a 38-year-old to close out his one-year deal in Las Vegas, but he was rather unproductive in 404 offensive snaps this season, while fellow TE Foster Moreau's development likely suffered as a result. A second retirement announcement could be on the horizon for Witten, though he's not yet made a decision on his future in football.

    Raiders' Jason Witten: Season-high five targets in loss

    Jason Witten caught two of five targets for 12 yards in Saturday's 26-25 loss to the Dolphins.Witten's five targets more than doubled his previous season high, but his 2.4 yards per target made for a forgettable performance while No. 1 tight end Darren Waller caught five passes for 112 yards. Having been eliminated from the playoff race, the Las Vegas Raiders might finally decide to give a handful of Witten's ineffective reps to Foster Moreau behind Waller in Week 17 against the Broncos.

    Raiders' Jason Witten: Spectates Waller's big day

    Jason Witten failed to haul in his only target during Sunday's 31-28 win over the Jets.Witten's involvement in the Las Vegas Raiders' aerial attack has been nearly nonexistent lately with just three total targets throughout the Raiders' past five games, while also logging less than 20 offensive snaps in back-to-back contests. Fellow tight end Darren Waller erupted for 200 receiving yards and a pair of touchdowns on 13 receptions Sunday, combating the offense's struggles on the ground. Witten may be tasked with providing additional run-block support Week 14 after the Raiders averaged just 2.9 yards per carry on 25 rush attempts against the Jets.

Witten figures to primarily serve as a run-blocking presence once more Week 12 against the Falcons.
