Dalton Schultz was supposed to be Blake Jarwin's backup this season but ended up as one of the best tight ends in the league, yet another White star at the position. Jarwin was returning from a torn ACL and finished '21 with just 96 receiving yards but may still bounce back strongly next season as he has lots of "upside." From Weenieworld: ESPN's Todd Archer said Dalton Schultz could be a candidate for the Cowboys' franchise tag this offseason. Schultz is sure to get plenty of interest in free agency after posting 78 receptions, 808 yards, and nine touchdowns in 2021. Mark Andrews and Travis Kelce were the only tight ends to record more catches this year, and only five tight ends had more receiving yards than Schultz. Archer said Schultz and Randy Gregory are the most likely Cowboys players to be slapped with the franchise tag this offseason. Schultz, Archer said, could fetch as much money as Hunter Henry did last year, when Henry signed with the Patriots for $37.5 million over three years. Blake Jarwin, signed through 2023, would have plenty of fantasy appeal as the Cowboys' TE1 if Schultz finds another home in the coming months.
