The Eagles and Zach Ertz appeared prepared for a mutual split during the offseason, but after some soul searching, relationships were mended.
Ertz has accomplished a lot in Philadelphia and if he simply was going to be released or traded, the Eagles would have pulled the trigger months ago.
A second-round pick out of Stanford in 2013, Ertz earned three Pro Bowl appearances from 2017-19, while logging an average of 93 receptions and almost 1,000 yards per season during that span.
In 2020, Ertz had the worst season of his career, logging just 36 catches for 335 yards and a touchdown.
This season through five games, Ertz has 14 catches on 25 targets, for 160-yards (11.4 avg) and one touchdown.
Ertz is in the final year of a five-year, $42.5 million deal, and with Philadelphia looking ahead to Tyree Jackson’s return, could Howie Roseman pull the trigger on a deal and send his star tight end to a contender?
