A report late last week indicated that the Cowboys and tight end Dalton Schultz would make another run at finding agreement on a long-term contract extension ahead of Friday’s deadline to do so, but it looks like they’ll have a lot of work to do in a short period of time.

Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News reports that the two sides have made no progress toward a deal as they have not spoken to one another in weeks.

That comes after Schultz skipped the final week of the team’s voluntary workouts this spring because of his frustration about the pace of talks on a deal. That didn’t spur any of the action he was looking for and the July 15 deadline may not be enough to force a change in stances on either side.

Schultz is set to make a $10.9 million salary under the terms of the tag. Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki is also tagged and without momentum toward a new contract, but David Njoku and the Browns came to terms on a long-term deal with an average annual salary of more than $13 million after Njoku was tagged earlier this year.

  1. Would someone please fill me in on when Dalton Shultz was a TE of siginificance in the league that it warranted a contract watch?!

  2. the Cowboys decided awhile ago to apply the tag to DS. It’ll be interesting to see if the TE market goes up like the WR market did and if he cashes in next year

  3. Well when a bum like Njoku gets 14 million per year over 4 years it inspires a slightly above average Schultz to look for more. The Browns are playing with monopoly money with this garbage loophole in paying out large bonus’ to circumvent the cap and it’s throwing the current league contract structure out of whack. Dallas should not be paying more than 11 million per year for Schultz. That is average right about Ertz at 10.5 and what he is making this year on the tag 10.9. Henry and Jonnu Smith are making 12.5 each but nobody in their right mind thinks either is work that money and it was just stupid contracts offered by the Patriots who thought these guys were the next Gronk/Hernandez. Dallas is smart standing pat, he is being offered a fair average for what he brings to the table when healthy. Not to mention the perks of playing in Dallas.

  4. This is the Cowboys problem.. they set the bar so high when it comes to signing players that people like Dalton Schultz really think they have leverage. I’m a lifelong Dallas fan and this has been the trend the last 8-10 years.
