Dalton Schultz to sign one-year deal with Houston

The Houston Texans are signing tight end Dalton Schultz to a one-year contract worth up to $9 million, Tom Pelissero reports.

What It Means:

The Texans have struggled to find a consistent producer at the tight end position for over a decade, but the addition of Schultz to their offense could hopefully provide a reliable pass-catching option for whichever rookie quarterback the team drafts in the 2023 NFL Draft. The former Dallas Cowboy was able to find surprising production over the past three seasons with the team despite their crowded receiving rooms.

Schultz played on the franchise tag for the Cowboys last season, and his 57 catches for 577 yards and 5 touchdowns were his lowest receiving marks since 2019. Even in a down year, his 577 yards were more than a Texans tight end has produced in 10 years.
