NFL Offseason – The Houston Texans are signing tight end Dalton Schultz to a one-year deal worth “up to” $9 million. That sounds like a one-year prove it deal with a lot of incentives. Bringing in a veteran tight end is probably a good security blanket for a young developing quarterback, although Schultz’s numbers really fell off last year.
In 2021, Schultz caught 78 balls for 808 yards and 8 touchdowns, and ranked fourth among tight ends with 190 DYAR. He was franchise-tagged by the Cowboys for 2022. But last year, he fell to 57 catches for 577 yards and 5 touchdowns, and his -16 DYAR ranked 36th among qualifying tight ends.
The Texans also signed former Buffalo running Devin Singletary to be a 1-2 punch with Dameon Pierce. Singletary’s contract is worth “up to” $3.75 million. Again, incentives.
