Over the past couple of seasons, Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz has established himself as a top player at his position in the NFL.

However, during the first two games of the 2020 season he has just eight catches for 60 yards and a single touchdown.

Contract talks between the Eagles and Ertz came to an abrupt halt at the start of the month with Ertz reportedly not being happy with the guaranteed money being offered.

With his drop in production and with two years left on his contract now would be the time to trade Ertz.

Here are a few trade destinations for Zach Ertz…

Dallas Cowboys

Yes, I know this sounds ridiculous with Dallas and Philadelphia being heated rivals, but this could make more sense than it seems.

With Philadelphia paying Ertz $8.5 million this year it might be a good idea to send him to a team like Dallas where he can be more productive.

The Dallas Cowboys do need a tight end right now as they have not yet replaced the recently departed Jason Witten who signed with the Oakland Raiders.


However, a trade like this would probably cost Dallas a lot to pull off.

Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills are one of the best up and coming teams in the NFL.

They were a surprise team last year going 10-6 earning themselves a playoff appearance.

With an up and coming team like the Bills they could do with an experienced player like Ertz who has also got a championship on his resume as well as three pro bowls.

The Bills should at least consider trading for Ertz as a veteran player could really help them push forward.

New England Patriots

Patriots life without Tom Brady has not started off too badly. Cam Newton looks like a new player and he is running the offence effectively.

However, they have not replaced their star tight end Rob Gronkowski yet.

This is where New England head coach Bill Belichick could be keeping an eye on the Zach Ertz situation.

Belichick is known for making these types of trades where he takes players that are not being used on teams and make them superstars.
