Thursday, April 4, at 4 p.m. ET is the deadline for NFL franchises that place the franchise tag onto upcoming free agents they wish to retain until at least 2022. there are many decisions to be made in the coming days for many teams , including the Dallas Cowboys.
According to Calvin Watkins, of the Dallas Morning News the Cowboys “seriously consider placing franchise tag on tight end Dalton Schultz. According to the NFL’s franchise tag numbers, it would cost them $10.9million.
Schultz was a top target for quarterback Dak Prescott last year, finishing only one catch behind CeeDee lamb to lead team with 78. With 808 receiving yards, he tied Amari Cooper for third. He also had the most touchdowns in eight. Schultz was third in all statistical categories, including the ones previously mentioned.
Despite some injuries sustained over the last few seasons, Dallas still has tight end Blake Jarwin contracts. Jarwin has two more years with the Cowboys. He will make $5.85 million in 2022, and $7.25million the next season.
Randy Gregory was another potential candidate for the Dallas tag. There is now a possibility that he will be available on the open market as an unrestricted agent. Gregory was an edge rusher and had six sacks, four tackles (for a loss) and 17 quarterback hits. Gregory was part of the revamped pass rush led by Dan Quinn, along with DeMarcus Lawrence & Micah Parsons.
Amari Cooper is reportedly set to be released by Dallas Cowboys anytime now. Where could this wide receiver end up for the 2022 season, according to some reports? Many people are asking this question, and one NFL insider has already made his prediction.
Riddick stated, “I believe this has ‘New England Patriots” They need someone who can do the No.1 wide receiver that Amari Cooper is capable of. As you can see, they don’t have anyone who can do this kind of thing.
“The problem with Amari is consistency. Amari’s problem is his inability to perform this task over 17 games. Two teams have now said to Amari, “Look, you are good but you aren’t worth the money we paid you.”
