Before Jason Witten, the Dallas Cowboys had another go-to-guy at the tight end position named Jay Novacek.
He had a vital role on the Cowboys team that won three Super Bowls in four years.
However, it is with a sad heart that I have to inform Dallas fans that Jay Novacek is now a widower. His wife, LeAnne, passed away earlier today on February 1, 2010.
The 45-year-old woman was found in one of the residential bedrooms. Suicide is one of many presumed causes for her death. Jay Novacek has confirmed the passing, but is mum on whether or not it is suicide.
He and his daughter are in my prayers as they should be in yours.
Here’s to you Jay. The Big D is with you in spirit.
