Tight end Zach Ertz may be the next Philadelphia Eagle on the move.
Multiple teams have called the Eagles about the possibility of trading for Ertz and a deal could happen in the coming days, sources tell NFL Network’s Michael Silver.
The potential trade of Ertz would exemplify the ongoing change in Philadelphia after the team traded quarterback Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts.
Ertz, 30, is coming off a down year with 36 receptions for 335 yards and one touchdown in 11 games. Those are career-lows in all three categories for the three-time Pro Bowler, but this move wouldn’t be solely because of Ertz’s lack of production.
While this upcoming year’s salary cap yet to be fully determined, the Eagles are projected to be well over the maximum number and trading Ertz away would give them some financial relief.
The Eagles are also well-equipped to let Ertz go with Dallas Goedert coming into his own after three seasons. The second-round pick had 46 receptions for 524 yards and three touchdowns last season.
