Report: 'Great chance' Ertz remains with EaglesJuly 21, 2021 | 11:31 AM
Eagles sideline reporter Howard Eskin "hears there is a great chance" Zach Ertz remains with the team to start the season.
Analysis: Per Eskin, Ertz is "over the issues" he had with the team after it was reported he wanted a contract extension this offseason as he heads into the final year of his deal. But coming off a terrible year and now 30 years old, an extension just wasn't going to happen. Ertz was given permission to seek a trade over the winter, but nothing came of it. He's probably realized it's best to play out the final year of his deal and collect his $8.5 million while trying to rebound from the down 2020 ahead of a run at the open market next offseason. With Ertz now looking at a return to the team, it dings Dallas Goedert's stock a bit.
