The Facts: Ertz's time in Philadelphia has come to a close. The Eagles are trading their longtime tight end to the Arizona Cardinals. Philadelphia is receiving rookie cornerback Tay Gowan and a 2022 fifth-round pick. Both teams later confirmed the deal.
Diehards Line: The Cardinals were in the market for a tight end after losing Maxx Williams to a torn ACL in Week 5. In Ertz, they've acquired a three-time Pro Bowler whose production has waned in the past year-plus while caught in a timeshare with Dallas Goedert. Three years removed from winning a Super Bowl, Ertz has the opportunity to reset with the league's lone unbeaten team. The 30-year-old played his first eight-plus seasons with Philadelphia, which selected Ertz in the second round of the 2013 draft.
