One day after the Houston Texans traded away top wide receiver Brandin Cooks, GM Nick Caserio made a couple of notable splashes in free agency.
Per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Texans signed former Dallas Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz to a one-year contract in free agency worth a max value of $9 million.
Soon after, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the Texans have also signed ex-Buffalo Bills running back Devin Singletary to a one-year deal that can be worth as much as $3.75 million.
Schultz had a career year for the Cowboys in 2021 despite having to share targets with three stud pass-catchers in Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup. Schultz hauled in 78 receptions for 808 yards and eight touchdowns, helping Dallas to the NFC East division crown.
But Schultz missed two games and struggled to repeat last year’s success, recording 57 receptions for 577 yards and five touchdowns. However, he had a productive postseason by hauling in 12 catches for 122 yards and a trio of touchdowns — including two in the team’s Wild Card Round victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Singletary is coming off his second straight 800-yard season for the Bills. In 2022, he rushed for 819 yards and five touchdowns to go along with 38 receptions for 280 yards and one receiving touchdown.
The Texans own the No. 2 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, and they’re likely going to take whoever the Carolina Panthers pass on between Alabama’s Bryce Young and Ohio State’s C.J. Stroud. Regardless, Houston’s next franchise QB will be very happy with the Dalton and Singletary additions.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
