It’s no secret that quarterback C.J. Stroud had one of the best rookie seasons we’ve ever seen from a quarterback in the NFL. One of the individuals who helped him along the way recently said he hopes to play in Houston in 2024.

Tight end Dalton Schultz didn’t mince words when asked about his impending free agency. He told Sports Radio 610 that he loved his one year with the Texans and would play again for them next year.

“Oh, I would love to be in Houston. There’s no doubt about that. I loved my time,” Schultz said, via Cody Stoots. “Again: Special organization. Special quarterback. Love the scheme. Love the coaches. Loved everything about Houston.”

Schultz added that he is “confident that we can find some common ground.”

The six-year veteran signed with Houston this past offseason on a one-year deal after he spent the first five years of his career with the Dallas Cowboys. The offense was a natural fit for him under offensive coordinator Bobby Slowik as Schultz gathered 59 catches for 635 yards and 5 touchdowns – mostly with Stroud under center.

It’ll be up to general manager Nick Caserio and head coach DeMeco Ryans to ultimately make the decision on retaining Schultz, though. There are plenty of arguments either way. It’s possible that Schultz could demand a larger contract from a team that needs receiver help, but it would be no surprise if the organization prioritized continuity for their young quarterback as they pursue a potential Super Bowl run in 2024.
