Veteran tight end and former Philadelphia Eagle Zach Ertz is still available to be signed after asking for and being granted his release last week from the Arizona Cardinals. The three-time pro bowler is looking to join a team in need and in the hunt to contend for the Super Bowl this season. It's late in the year and injuries are mounting up, but one contender has already ruled the former Super Bowl champion out.
Good News for Eagles: Harbaugh says Ravens are Not Adding Ertz
In Monday's press conference, Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh says Ertz is not a need for them and he wants to "roll" with his guys now. They appear to think injured starter Mark Andrews will be back in action soon after missing one game against the Los Angeles Chargers before this past week's bye.
Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert did return to practice last week. He was injured in November 5th's home game against the Dallas Cowboys, missing all three games since then. It is possible he returns this week to take on those same Cowboys in Jerry's World.
We have already seen the Eagles improve the defensive side of the ball this week. In a quick answer to the embarrassing loss to the 49ers, the Birds scooped up recently released linebacker Shaquille Edwards to improve a defense that gave up 42 points to the Niners.
Ertz, a former Eagle and part of the Super Bowl winning roster, would be another veteran signing the Birds can make entering the home stretch of the regular season to go after another title.
