In his first season with the Texans, the 6’5 tight end developed a connection with rookie quarterback CJ Stroud. The duo helped Houston reach the playoffs as the former Miner finished the year 635 yards receiving on 59 catches and five touchdowns. Schultz made six grabs and found the end zone in two playoff games with Houston.

Schultz earned $2.8 million in 2023 but will see his average salary jump to $12 million per year over the course of his new deal.
