TE - PHI
Week 17 Outlook
Eagles tight end Zach Ertz is "bracing for a change of scenery via release or trade" this offseason and could be included in an expected Carson Wentz trade, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.
The Eagles and Ertz negotiated a contract extension prior to last season but were unable to agree to terms. He was reportedly frustrated with the negotiations at the time, and he is unlikely to be with the team in 2021 with the team entering what appears to be a rebuilding year and the veteran tight end entering the last year of his contract. Ertz had a down year in 2020 but is still just 30 years old and caught 88 passes for 916 yards and six touchdowns in 2019.
Eagles TE Zach Ertz remains hopeful about continuing his career in Philadelphia but addressed the uncertainty surrounding next season amidst ongoing contract negotiations.
Ertz stated, "My time in Philadelphia has been the best experience I've ever had. ... I want to be here. I don't know what's going to happen next year." The former Pro-Bowl tight end had a down year, scoring only one touchdown across 11 games in an injury-plagued 2020 season. Ertz still has a year remaining on his current contract but has referenced his request for a new contract several times. Continue monitoring Ertz and his contract negotiations as the Eagles head into the offseason.
