Player Outlook

Schultz is a top-six tight end worth a pick as early as Round 6 in drafts. Schultz exploded onto the scene in 2021, setting career highs in every statistic that matters, including efficiency metrics. Now, with Amari Cooper gone, there's an opportunity for an even bigger role. If Schultz is up to the challenge of being the No. 2 option in this offense, he has a chance to finish even higher than he did in 2021.

Player News
  • Schultz is in line to be present for this week's mandatory minicamp, Todd Archer of ESPN reports. The tight end elected to skip the final week of the Cowboys' voluntary OTAs with an eye toward jump-starting contract negotiations. As things currently stand, Schultz is slated to play this coming season under a $10.9 million franchise tag, but NFL Network's Tom Pelissero relays that talks related to a potential long-term deal have recently picked up. Though nothing is imminent on that front, it appears as though there's mutual interest to that end. The 25-year-old is coming off a 2021 campaign in which he logged a career-best stat line (78-808-8) on 104 targets in 17 games.

  • Schultz informed the Cowboys on Monday he intends to skip the remainder of voluntary OTAs due to dissatisfaction with his current contract, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Schultz has already signed with Dallas for the 2022 season via a one-year, $10.9 million franchise tender, but both sides still have until July 15 to work out a long-term deal. The soon-to-be 26-year-old produced a 78-808-8 line on 104 targets across 17 games last season, and he racked up 615 receiving yards the year prior. In the wake of David Njoku signing a four-year, $56.75 million contract in Cleveland, it's unsurprising to see Schultz attempt to push the Cowboys toward an extension. There's not yet any indication that Schultz could consider skipping mandatory minicamp mid-June, as that would subject him to fines.

  • Schultz signed his franchise tag tender with the Cowboys on Monday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports. The Cowboys and Schultz' representatives can continue to work out a long-term deal through July 15, but if nothing pans out he'll play out the 2022 season on a $10.9 million salary. After emerging with a 63-615-4 line on 89 targets in 16 games in 2020, he broke out even further with 78 catches (on 104 targets) for 808 yards and eight TDs in 17 contests last season. Dallas has made some adjustments to its receiving corps this offseason, moving on from Amari Cooper (traded to Cleveland) and Cedrick Wilson (signed with Miami), so Schultz' current competition for targets in 2022 are CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup, who is recovering from a Week 17 ACL tear.

  • The Cowboys officially placed their franchise tag on Schultz on Tuesday. Schultz will carry a $10.9 million salary to stick with the Cowboys for the 2022 campaign, which gives both sides another year to negotiate an extension. The soon-to-be 26-year-old proved his value on offense by racking up 808 yards and eight touchdowns across 17 contests last season, and with Blake Jarwin (hip) expected to miss the start of the 2022 campaign, shoring up the No. 1 tight end spot was exceptionally vital. What's more, Amari Cooper has been floated as a potential cut candidate and Michael Gallup (knee) isn't necessarily a lock for Week 1 even if re-signed. That could position Schultz to kick off the upcoming campaign as the No. 2 target on offense behind CeeDee Lamb.

  • The Cowboys will place their franchise tag on Schultz on Tuesday, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports. The 2018 fourth-round pick emerged with 78 catches, 808 receiving yards and eight touchdowns across 17 appearances in 2021, and with rumors abounding about Amari Cooper potentially being cut, it makes obvious sense for Dallas to keep Schultz in-house. Retaining the tight end through the 2022 season on just under an $11 million salary gives he and the Cowboys more time to negotiate a potential long-term deal. Dallas stands to make the transaction official prior to Tuesday's 4:00 p.m. EST deadline.
