The Dallas Cowboys reshaped this offseason’s offense by trading Amari Cooper. Cedrick Wilson and Connor Williams were also traded. La’el Collins was allowed to leave in free agency. Due to their inability to extend Dalton Schultz’s contract, Dallas could lose another important player, the tight end.
Adam Schefter says that the Cowboys are unlikely to reach an agreement with Schultz on a contract extension. Although Friday is the deadline, the possibility of a new contract for Schultz at 26 years old is very likely.
Cowboys’ franchised tight end Dalton Schultz and Dallas are not expected to reach agreement on a contract extension before Friday’s 4 pm deadline for franchise players, per sources.

Schultz just finished a record-setting year in Dallas. Schultz had a career year with Dallas, where he had 808 receiving yards, eight touchdowns and 78 catches. Due to the franchise label, he is currently on a one year deal and may move on to better pastures. His last conversation was two weeks ago, which suggests that his days in Dallas are over.
Dalton Schultz will be a key player in the Cowboys’ offense. Along with CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup (who is still recovering from an ACL torn), Schultz will be the Cowboys’ key pass-catcher. Ezekiel Elliot and Dak Prescott will be carrying a lot of the offensive burden, while Micah Parsons is in charge of defense.
After winning the division last year, the Cowboys seemed poised to lead the NFC East with the great talent from both sides. Dallas could be in trouble soon, with so many free agents and the Philadelphia Eagles making large moves,
