Schultz is one of the proven weapons for Dak Prescott heading into the opening of the 2022 season.

OXNARD, Calif. — Our final report from Cowboys camp in Oxnard comes from tight end Dalton Schultz, who's still looking for his big payday with Dallas, but could soon force Jerry Jones's hand with his play on the field.

Schultz will be playing under the franchise tag at $10.9 million this year after the two sides failed to reach a long term deal. The soon-to-be fifth year tight end had the best season of his career in 2021, coming off eight touchdowns and just over 800 yards.

With the Cowboys' injuries and lack of proven receivers outside of CeeDee Lamb, Schultz could be primed for a thousand yard receiving season which could earn him that extended contract from the cowboys next offseason.
