The Dallas Cowboys are thought to be averse to using the franchise tag on Dalton Schultz, meaning the player could be up for grabs on the open market this offseason.
That is according to Matt Verderame of Fansided, who reports the Cowboys are not expected to tag the tight end this time around after using it on him last year.
“My understanding is the Cowboys are unlikely to tag tight end Dalton Schultz again, after doing so in 2022,” Verderame tweeted.
“In that scenario, the 26-year-old becomes one of the most sought-after free agents on the market.”
Schultz will undoubtedly attract plenty of suitors should Dallas let him walk.
The player left a lot to be desired during his first two seasons in the NFL but has become a standout player over the past three, making 198 receptions during said period. He ranked among the top 10 tight ends in receiving yards and touchdowns in the league last season and, given that he’s 26, we could deduce that the best is yet to come from the former Stanford star.
It’s also been rumored that the TE could reunite with Kellen Moore, who is now with the Los Angeles Chargers after spending three years as the offensive coordinator in Dallas.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
