In the Starting Line-Up
Another thread based solely on speculation about a potential player. Love it for the 5,000th time
Ertz is getting cut, most likely with a post June 1 designation. The Iggles are in cap hell (currently $53 Million OVER), he is on the books for a 12 million cap hit this year. Cutting him saves them over $8 million in cap space.
IF they traded him, they would have more dead money and only half the cap savings.
Once he is cut, then you can see what he wants to sign.
We spent more on the draft for TE’s who aren’t half of what Ertz isWhere will Philadelphia’s tight end land?www.bleedinggreennation.com
what do we think of that option? 3rd or 4th sounds a little high considering his injury history......
Obviously you don’t know the history of Philadelphia Cheesesteaks. It’s always been that way. Pat’s and Gino’s are the two famous Philly Cheesesteak restaurants, but I think they both are overrated. The pizzeria by where I lived in Philly for 6 months, had much better cheesesteaks. Had great pizza as well.Yeah, I thought I was all-in on the concept of a cheesesteak, until they pull out the Velveeta, Cheeze Wiz, or some other fake "cheese food" and smother the grease with it.
Hunter Henry can't stay healthy.
Cousin, that is what makes the cheese more binding......... BB has never been afraid to take a "rental" (think Revis) if he thinks this could be an integral part. Ossee and Nick did the Pats no favors with past Drafts and as we all can attest, were horrible at Drafting skill players.Zach Ertz stating that he refuses to play for the Eagles is a PR move by he and his agent.
The Eagles are more than $53 million over the cap. He was going to be cut by Philly regardless, saving them more than $8.2 million in cap space. This statement is all about saving himself that embarrassment in a "you can't fire me, I quit" self brand promoting manner.
Philly could trade Ertz, but then their cap savings drop to $4.7 million. Any team trading for him picks up his contract ($12.5 million), and runs the risk of him being a one-year rental (he's a free agent in 2022).
All that diminishes his trade value immensely.
