Cowboys place franchise tag on Dalton Schultz

Dallas Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz was assigned the team's franchise tag on Tuesday.

What It Means:

Schultz will remain with the Cowboys for the upcoming season after consecutive campaigns with 60 plus receptions. The 25-year-old has played his entire career for Dallas after being drafted in the fourth round in the 2018 NFL draft. He is expected to remain a core part of the Cowboys' passing attack alongside CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup, with Amari Cooper set to be released.

Schultz played in 17 games for Dallas last season, setting career highs in catches (78), targets (104), yards (808), and touchdowns (8).
