The Arizona Cardinals are finalizing a deal to resign veteran tight end Zach Ertz, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.
Ertz, 31, was traded to the Cardinals during the 2021 season from the Eagles for CB Tay Gowan and a fifth-round pick. He caught 56 passes for 574 yards for three touchdowns in 11 games with Arizona.
The Washington Commanders drummed up interest towards Ertz in the past few days, per Cardinals beat reporter Johnny Venerable:
The Cardinals will have Ertz’s services for three more seasons in the range of more than $10 million. Ertz was one of six tight ends with more than 70 catches in the 2021 season. In just 11 games, Ertz accumulated 81 targets and had immediate success with Kyler Murray.
Ertz was the leader of the pack for free-agent tight ends when Mike Gesicki, David Njoku and Dalton Schultz were franchise-tagged prior.
Now, the three-time Pro Bowler has the opportunity to possibly finish his career in Arizona.
