Jason Witten

By the way, the play where Witten ran down the field without a helmet... against the Eagles... , he didn't simply "lose" his helmet, or his helmet didn't just "come off", He took a full speed blow to the head by one defender, and a second defender basically close-lines him and rips his helmet off his head. His toughness is not just from the fact he ran down the field without a helmet, but that he received both of those hits and not only stays on his feet, but takes off down the field towards the goal line.

The guy missed one game in 15 seasons. He is #4 in career receptions. Not just for Tight Ends, but all receivers. More than Marvin Harrison, Cris Carter, Tim Brown, Terrell Owens, etc. etc. The embodiment of toughness, consistency, and reliably. He will be missed.
