Ertz was at one point considered one of the best receiving tight ends in football, but he’s coming off an injury-riddled season in 2020. He played just 11 games and finished with career-lows virtually across the board: 36 catches, 335 receiving yards, one touchdown. He’s become expendable for the Eagles, and ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reports “at least three” teams are interested in acquiring his services. Fowler added that the Eagles wouldn’t part with Ertz “for nothing in return.” His departure would make Dallas Goedert the clear top tight end in Philadelphia, which would be great for his fantasy value.
The Bills have emerged as one of the frontrunners in the Ertz sweepstakes. They’ve been vocal about wanting an upgrade at tight end, but they have yet to make any notable moves at the position. The Bills recently freed up approximately $7.8M in cap space by converting some of Stefon Diggs’ base salary into a signing bonus, which could be more evidence that they’re looking to acquire Ertz.
The Bills are listed at +1200 to win Super Bowl LVI on FanDuel Sportsbook, which trails only the Chiefs (+500) and Buccaneers (+650).
