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.

If I recall correctly Schultz was drafted as a blocking tight end in the 4th round. He turned out to be much more.

If you want a complete tight end, you more than likely want a white player.

Stanford has had a nice pipeline of White TEs over the past decade or so. I’d like to see Schultz sign elsewhere and use his talents to help out a young White QB.

The Cowboys are a paper tiger. They play in the worst division in football. Elliott is showing wear and tear, the offensive line isn’t the dominant unit from Prescott’s first few years in the league. The defense did feast of off turnovers but who knows if that success will be replicated.

Leighton Vander Esch resigns with the Cowboys on a one year "prove it" deal. The Patriots and other teams were interested in him, I don't like this move at all, esp. if Dallas signs Bobby Wagner. Vander Esch started last year but rarely played all three downs, he could have done better for himself.

I agree, he’s exactly the player the Patriots like at the MLB spot too. For comparison the starters last year for the Pats were Donta Hightower (6’3” 260lbs) and Ja’Whaun Bentley (6’2” 255lbs). Neither has been re-signed yet.

Vander Esch is 6’4” 255lbs and is more athletic than both of them.

Just hoping LVE can stay healthy. I feel that's been his Achilles heel thus far!

Dak Prescott needs surgery on his thumb and should be out 6-8 weeks. Cooper Rush takes over as the starter, unless they go out and sign a veteran. Perhaps a trade for Jimmy G could be possible as well?

Money well spent on their franchise qb. Again we called this out several years ago that Prescott enjoyed a dominant o-line and run game for the first few years of his career. My guess is the Cowboys have peaked with him as their starting qb and still have him tied up for millions of dollars over the next few years.

They never wanted to give him the elite money that they gave him. It was done because of political reasons. They knew what he is which is a middle of the road starter that can make the playoffs but won't make a playoff run because he can't make big plays with his arm.

As long as Jones is the GM or the defacto GM the Cowboys are the Raiders under the senile Davis.

A big push from Drew Person and others for the Cowboys to sign Cam Newton.

Oh please make it so, honestly the NFL is entertainment not a worship of athletic excellence at this point for me so having him bring his act to Dallas would possibly be just grand especially the clips of "Jer" in the box scowling.
