“My game’s really never referenced as shake ‘n’ bake,” said Witten when told the play could draw the description. “I’ll take that. That’s definitely a compliment for me.
“My career has been defined, in a good way, on the option route. And a lot of times, it’s a bang-bang play. It’s a great play because it can convert first downs. But at the same time, you don’t get a lot of those opportunities in the open field. I certainly am not one that can do the moves that some of the other guys on our team can do … but I like to have opportunities like that and be able to do it.”
