Witten and I think it is by a wide margin. I think he is better at finding and creating space. He is bigger and stronger and probably even has better hands. The 1990s Cowboys would not have skipped a beat had Witten played for them with one exception. Witten is not a holder for extra points and FGs.
The most receptions Novacek had in a season was 68 at age 30 back in 1992. The most yards was 705 in 1995, his last year in the NFL. Witten averages 79 receptions and 883 yards a season at this point.
