Jason Witten: Redskins helped, but focus is on Cowboys
|Miles Austin talks about the wide receivers' role in the Cowboys' win over the Eagles. |
But it wasn’t like Witten was signing, "Hail to the Redskins," either.
“If we don’t take care of our stuff then none of that matters,” Witten said. “I mean if you’re in the last game and you need to this, this and this to go right I can see you cheering for (other teams), but the best thing we can do is take care of ourselves and start playing our best football this time of year and build on that win there last week.”
Witten visited Swift Elementary School in Arlington on Tuesday to present a $10,000 grant to the school as part of the NFL’s Play 60 campaign. X Box Kinect matched the grant and AT&T will hand out another $10,000 to an Arlington school later.
“It’s always good to do it after a win, that’s for sure,” said Witten, who led students in exercises after an assembly. “The message is about so many different things, about encouraging them to go out and play is the biggest thing. We were all there at one time and had dreams and goals to achieve. They’re no different.”
