The Dallas Cowboys must complete one more thing before the 2022 season.
Bleacher Report states that the Cowboys must sign Dalton Schultz, tight end, to a contract extension before the next season starts.
“Last season, Schultz finished top five among tight ends with 78 receptions and eight touchdown catches. He also generated the highest passing grade at his position when targeted 20 or more yards downfield, according to Pro Football Focus. His continued development after being a fourth-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft deserves to be rewarded.”
The two sides might not agree on a long-term contract extension. There is still plenty of time for things to be worked out.
“I want to work out a long-term deal and I think they do too,” Schultz told reporters in April. “Hopefully, we can get that done. But just knowing where I’m going to be for the next year, I’m happy with.”
These past two seasons, Schultz has been a key offensive weapon for the Cowboys. He caught 78 passes last year for 808 yards and eight touchdowns, in 17 games.
The Cowboys may want Schultz back to prove his worth for another season. However, players don’t usually take that well.
It will be fascinating to see how NFC East handles this.
