Big Blue View Preseason All-NFC East Team -- Tight End

Jun 12, 2012; Irving, TX, USA; Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten (82) Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Today we move to the tight end position as we name our Big Blue View Preseason All-NFC East Team. Your choices are after the jump.

Jason Witten, Cowboys -- A seven-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro, Witten is still at the top of his game. He caught 79 passes a season ago for 942 yards. Witten has surpassed 1,000 yards receiving three times in the past five seasons. Giants' fans know all too well how difficult Witten is to handle.

Martellus Bennett, Giants -- Signed as a free agent with the Giants to escape Witten's shadow and get the chance to play full time. Right now, Bear Pascoe is technically the Giants starter but the Giants signed Bennett to start and be a weapon as a receiver and blocker. They will give him every opportunity. Bennett has 85 receptions in four seasons.

Brent Celek, Eagles -- Celek has been a consistent performer for Philadelphia during his five-year career. He caught 62 passes last season, averaging 13 yards per catch and scoring 5 touchdowns.

Chris Cooley, Redskins -- Cooley has 428 career receptions, but played only five games and caught 8 passes a season ago due to lingering effects of a knee injury. He caught 77 passes in 2010. Cooley is reportedly healthy and 20 pounds lighter entering the 2012 season. Cooley is only 29, and if his knee is sound he remains a tremndous security blanket for rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III.
