Latest On Potential Zach Ertz Trade

     

According to Mike Garafolo, the Eagles continue to maintain they’re not in a rush to trade TE Zach Ertz as they continue to hold out for better draft compensation.

Philadelphia reportedly has multiple teams interested in Ertz but none have been willing to give up a third or fourth-round pick to get the veteran tight end. 

Garafolo says the Eagles are saying they’re fine holding Ertz and don’t want to give up a potential Hall-of-Fame player for pennies on the dollar.

However, Garafolo believes the team ultimately will end up moving on from Ertz given he’s clearly dissatisfied with his contract and current standing with the team. 

Garafolo notes that Ertz would be open to playing out the final year of his contract should he be traded to a new team as well. 

Ertz came up as a potential trade option leading up to the deadline last year with the Ravens and Packers being linked to him. However, no deals surfaced due in part to Ertz being injured. 

Ertz, 30, is a former second-round pick of the Eagles back in 2013. He’s in the final year of his six-year, $43.64 million contract that included $20 million guaranteed.

Ertz stands to make a base salary of $8.25 million for the 2021 season. 

In 2020, Ertz appeared in 11 games for the Eagles and caught 36 passes for 335 yards receiving and one touchdown.
