Indianapolis Colts, Seattle Seahawks Possible Destinations for Zach Ertz
February 14Grant WhiteSportsGrid
There are many balls up in the air for the Philadelphia Eagles as they try to wiggle free from the cap crunch they find themselves in. Zach Ertz is the latest name to be mentioned in trade rumors, and according to Sports Illustrated, the Indianapolis Colts and Seattle Seahawks are front runners to land the tight end.
The Seahawks will be looking to appease Russell Wilson, who expressed dissatisfaction with the system he has in Seattle. Will Dissly was the most productive of Seahawks’ tight ends but only had 251 yards on 29 receptions in 16 games. Ertz could step in and add a new dimension to an already potent offense.
Speculation is that Carson Wentz is also being discussed with Ertz as a potential package deal to the Colts. Indianapolis needs to replace Philip Rivers, and Ertz could be a security blanket for Wentz in learning a new offense.
One thing is for sure. Ertz will be looking to improve upon his career-worst campaign, in which he set lows in receptions, yards, and touchdowns.
Either team would move up the NFL futures board at FanDuel Sportsbook by acquiring Ertz. The Seahawks are currently listed at +2000, with the Colts close behind at +2900.
