Ertz is entering to final season of his contract, is scheduled to earn $7.75 million in 2021, and is coming off his least productive season in the NFL with 36 catches for 335 yards and one touchdown in 11 games.  He was seen as a prime candidate for a trade heading into the offseason and reports in March indicated one was close, but nothing happened. Ertz was said to be “increasingly impatient” about a move a short time later and his absence from the team’s work indicates his desire to move on has not changed.

That said, the front office seems in no hurry to move him.  GM Howie Roseman said after the draft that Ertz is “a good player, a good person and he’s under contract” while saying he’d do what’s best for the Eagles. it would be a major surprise if we see the 30-year-old veteran start the 2021 regular season in an Eagles uniform and an even bigger surprise if he finished the season in one.
