Dallas Cowboys TE Dalton Schultz believes that healthy Dak Prescott is a big factor in team’s offseason development

FRISCO (Texas) — One year ago Dak PrescottThe athlete was undergoing rigorous rehabilitation following a right ankle dislocation and compound fracture suffered in Week 5 2020. While the Dallas CowboysPrescott is already getting plenty of practice with his skill players since Monday's official start of the offseason.

Prescott, who is fully healed from the offseason surgery on his left shoulder (non-throwing), has been able to hold numerous throwing sessions.

“I think it is super important whenever that you can throw together with your quarterback,” tight ending Dalton Schultz said. It is invaluable, I think. You can't stop thinking about it. This is a far better place for him than last year, when he was in rehab. We have had plenty of opportunities to throw with the guys and get back on the field. Yes, we are definitely better than last year.

Schultz signed the $10.9million franchise tag in the offseason, which was a significant increase after his previous four seasons of making $4.4 million. However, he would love to have a multi-year deal.

“I believe it was a good beginning. Schultz stated that although the franchise tag may sometimes be seen differently, it was a good start. This is where I want. I love being here. This organization is a special place to me, and I am grateful I was able at least to return for one year. I would like to see them sign a long-term contract. We can hopefully get that done. But knowing where I am going for the next year is enough to make me happy,

Schultz and the Cowboys have until July 15th to reach a deal. If Schultz does not, he will continue to play on the tag. After the season, he would be an unrestricted-free agent. He stated that he would let Steve Caric, his agent, handle the negotiations. He will also provide updates.

Schultz said, “Just trying not to be patient.”

Jason Witten joined Schultz in 2021 as the only tight end to record at least 70 receiving yards for 800 yards. Witten was the only one in team history to do so. Schultz finished the season with 78 receiving yards for 808 yards. Witten had eight touchdowns.

He stated that his goal was to gain 5-6 pounds in order to block larger defensive ends. He has been to The Star for the informal captains’ workouts, which began last month. The trade of Amari CooperSchultz could play a bigger role in the offense.

Schultz said, “We're a more offensive with (Cooper)”. “Unfortunately, we don't have him so I think the next step will be to get guys to step up. There's still room for improvement in many other areas of the game.

The Cowboys finished 12-5 and won the NFC East. However, their season ended in a disappointing loss to the Wild-Card. San Francisco 49ers at AT&T Stadium.

“Everybody knows the goal. Schultz stated that this is something we discuss as often as possible. “Maybe at a lift, everyone brings it up and wants it to be broken down. Some guys will only say a few words. That's why we have a championship in mind for the organization. I think that begins in the offseason. It doesn't matter if you exercise on your own, or in a facility, the offseason is about competing with yourself. This will be a great way to get in shape for the next year.
