Will Zach Ertz Be a Philadelphia Eagle In Week 1? | Will Zach Ertz Report to Training Camp?

Rumors have been surrounding Zach Ertz all season and not for good reason. He clearly believes his time in Philadelphia has come to an end and wants a change of scenery, but most importantly he wants to get paid. The Eagles have made it painfully obvious that Ertz is available via trade, but no team is willing to take the bait that Howie Roseman is dangling. The organization also can't risk bringing him back for a few prominent reasons: 1) Keeping him will incur a $12.7M cap hit. 2) His presence will be a distraction given the dynamic of a new coaching staff and vision for the franchise. And 3) Dallas Goedert is in his contract year, poised to take TE1 snaps and is seeking a major pay day. Nonetheless there are too many questions and not enough answers when it comes to the Zach Ertz saga. Will the Eagles move on regardless of compensation? Will he report to training camp? Will he play week 1 for the Philadelphia Eagles? The story is still being written.
