TE Dalton Schultz, Devin Singletary Sign with Houston Texans

The Dallas Cowboys have long given the impression that they are content with the idea of letting Schultz leave in free agency. All three of Jake Ferguson, Peyton Hendershot, and Sean McKeon are currently signed to their respective teams through 2023. They were pleased to continue developing their young and maybe dip into what is regarded to be a very deep draft at the position, so they decided not to offer Schultz his worth in exchange for their services.

In the early stages of the draft, Dallas will have the opportunity to select a tight end.

The Dallas Mavericks selected Schultz in the fourth round of the 2018 draft. In retrospect, the best time to re-sign him would have been after the 2020 campaign had ended. The more the Cowboys waited, the higher the market price for tight end players became. In spite of the fact that they regarded him as a reliable player who established a connection with quarterback Dak Prescott that rivaled that of anyone else on the team, they eventually did not value Schultz highly enough to pay him the amount of money that the market said he was worth.

Schultz is the latest member of Prescott’s close circle to leave the team over the summer. Also, offensive coordinator Kellen Moore and quarterbacks coach Doug Nussmeier resigned from their positions with the club in late January.

Schultz is one of seven tight ends who have combined for 2,000 receiving yards or more in the last three years, and he is one of them. The rest of them are Travis Kelce, Mark Andrews, George Kittle, Darren Waller, T.J. Hockenson, and Dallas Goedert. When compared to other tight ends throughout that time period, Schultz ranks fourth in catches, seventh in yards, and fifth in touchdowns.

He was playing under the $10.9 million franchise tag during the previous season. In this month’s game, the Cowboys decided to utilize their franchise tag on running back Tony Pollard for $10.1 million rather than re-tagging Schultz for the higher price of $13.1 million.

During the previous season, Schultz was sidelined with a right PCL knee injury, which led to a decline in his total output. Before making a team-high seven catches for 95 yards and two touchdowns in a playoff victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on January 16, he had a total of 57 receptions for 577 yards and five scores during the regular season.

After the Cowboys traded for Brain Cooks, the Texans fanbase was unsettled by the talent in the wide receiver room. Adding Dalton Schultz gives the #2 pick overall a safe veteran target to throw to over the middle. The team will likely continue to add depth before training camp

Devin Singletary

The Houston Texans have reached an agreement with free agent running back Devin Singletary on a one-year, $3.75 million contract, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Singletary, who is now 25 years old, began his professional football career with the Buffalo Bills, who selected him in the third round (74th overall) in the 2019 NFL Draft. He played for the Bills for the first four years of his career.

During the previous season, he participated in 16 games and had 177 runs for 819 yards and five touchdowns. In addition, he had 38 catches for 280 yards and one score.

The move adds depth to the backfield, but Damon Pierce Fantasy owners should feel threatened.
