According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the Houston Texans have added a new tight end to their roster.
According to multiple reports, the Texans have agreed to terms with tight end Dalton Schultz on a one-year contract that may be worth as much as $9 million.
During the course of the past three seasons in Dallas, Schultz has accumulated 198 receptions and 17 touchdowns. Even now, he's only 26 years old.
Houston signed Dallas wide receiver Noah Brown to a one-year contract one day after trading Brandin Cooks to the Cowboys for a fifth and sixth-round selection.
Schultz gives the Texans another pass-catcher for their rookie quarterback next month.
Schultz gives a rookie a reliable option in the middle, which is a big plus for the Texans and should be a huge step up for them.
Jordan Akins and O.J. Howard split time at this position for Houston during the previous season.
Now, Schultz will take the reins as the leader of the tight end room, which also includes Brevin Jordan and Teagan Quitoriano.
