Cowboys' Dalton Schultz isn't relinquishing TE1 role without a fight

When the Cowboys lost tight end Blake Jarwin in the last year’s season opener to a torn ACL, there were questions about how the position would fair for the rest of the year. Fortunately, Dalton Schultz was ready to step up and fill his shoes. Schultz had just 13 receptions for 122 yards before the 2020 season. With the keys to the position firmly in his grasp, Schultz became only the fourth tight end in team history to record at least 60 receptions (63) while also amassing 615 yards and four touchdowns. That certainly exceeded any expectations anyone had for Schultz with such limited time on the field in his first two years. The more time a player spends on the field the more confident they become, seeing as experience is the best teacher. After just 417 snaps in his first two seasons, Schultz logged 973 in 2020 while registering 14 starts.
