NFL rumors: Kellen Moore working to steal free agent from Cowboys
Los Angeles Chargers offensive coordinator Kellen Moore can steal a massive free agent away from the Dallas Cowboys.
The Dallas Cowboys have made some changes to their offense, notably the move of Offensive Coordinator Kellen Moore. It didn’t take Moore long to find another NFL gig. After all, he had been a major cultivation candidate for the past two years. Eventually, he signed with the Los Angeles Chargers to be the new offensive coordinator.
Could Moore be working on robbing a prominent Cowboys free agent?
According to TheScore insider Jordan Schultz, the Chargers are among the teams interested in former Cowboys end Dalton Schultz. An NFL insider notes that Schultz has an affair with Moore, but the price has been “too high” so far.
Sources say the #Chargers are among the teams that have expressed interest in #Cowboys FA TE Dalton Schultz. So far, the price has been pretty high, but the Bolts also hired former Dallas OC Kellen Moore, so there’s a connection there. @The result

As of this writing, there hasn’t been much movement on the tight end in free agency, other than Hayden Hurst agreeing to a three-year, $21.75 million deal with the Carolina Panthers. Schultz is probably the best tight end available right now, and it’s really a matter of who he wants to sign.
Spotrac lists Schultz’s market value as an average annual salary of $15.1 million.
In the most recent season, Dallas put the franchise tag on Schultz, who paid him $10.9 million for the 2022 campaign. It happened after the 2021 season in which he caught 78 of 104 targets for 808 yards and eight touchdowns.
In 2022, Schultz caught 57 passes for 577 yards and five touchdowns on 89 targets over 15 regular season games. In Dallas’ two playoff games against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and San Francisco 49ers, Schultz recorded 12 receptions for 122 yards and three touchdowns on 18 targets.
Will Moore and Chargers sign Schultz? Or will another NFL team be able to secure him in a long-term deal?
