Houston Texans tight end Dalton Schultz has an estimated net worth of $7 million. The Stanford alum earned all that money through a five-year NFL career, smart investments and player-centric sponsorship deals.
The Dallas Cowboys drafted Schultz in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft, and he remained on Team USA until the 2023 offseason, when he joined the Houston Texans.
Schultz is one of the most underrated tight ends in the NFL, and he’ll be looking to have a season out in Houston. He’ll likely get an elite quarterback prospect in the 2023 NFL Draft, which will be his first time playing under a quarterback not named Dak Prescott.
How much did Dalton Schultz earn during his NFL career?
Dalton Schultz earned $15,855,529 during his NFL career, all as a member of the Dallas Cowboys. Schultz had been a mainstay in Dallas for half a decade, and he was paid decently for his contribution to Jerry Jones’ team.
He was drafted by the Cowboys in 2023 and immediately signed a rookie-scale contract worth $2,912,359 over four years. His contract was standard for a fourth-round pick, which meant Schultz should earn a better deal on his performance.
He did just that and the Cowboys franchise marked him ahead of the 2022 NFL season. The franchise tag earned him $10,931,000 for the year, and judging by his performance, that was great value for the Cowboys.
After the season, in which he rejected a three-year, $30 million deal with the Cowboys, he joined the Houston Texans on a $9 million deal.
Dalton Schultz contract breakdown and salary in 2023
Dalton Schultz has signed a contract to become the Houston Texans’ number one right winger for the 2023 NFL season. The contract he signed was worth $9,000,000 throughout the 2022 NFL season, and it will give him a chance to prove whether he’s worth renewing.
Dalton Schultz’s contract includes a large guaranteed amount, and some bonuses that have yet to be announced are part of the package.
The deal is the second Schultz has won, aside from the franchise deal he signed with the Dallas Cowboys last season. Schultz and the Houston Texans will look to bounce back from another abysmal season in 2022.
The Texans were so bad they ended up with the second pick in the NFL Draft. As such, they are in pole position to select a generational talent at number two. Their fans hope they don’t bottle up this chance.
