While the Patriots have two young players in Dalton Keene and Devin Asiasi, it looks like there could be a veteran tight end potentially available this offseason if New England decides to try and acquire one.

Tony Pauline of ProFootballNetwork.com, reports that it sounds like the 2020 season may have been the last one in Philadelphia for tight end Zach Ertz.

Pauline said he’s heard that the veteran’s days with the Eagles appear to be over.

“I was told unequivocally today that tight end Zach Ertz will not play for the Philadelphia Eagles next year,” writes Pauline. “There appears to be some hard feelings how Ertz, a big contributor to the team during their Super Bowl run, was treated last season.”

Pauline goes on to say, “Rather than cut Ertz, expect the Eagles to try and trade him. Ertz has two years remaining on his contract.”

According to OverTheCap.com, he’s set to make $8.25 million in 2021 and carries a cap hit of $12.47 million.

The 30-year old Ertz battled injuries in 2020 and had a down year but he’s been a productive player.  He had 916 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns in 2019 on 88 receptions, including 12 plays of 20+ yards. The season before, he caught 116 passes for 1163 yards and 8 touchdowns with 13 plays of 20+.

The 30-year old Ertz played in 11 games last season, catching 36 passes for 335 yards along with a touchdown.
