Say what you want about Zach Ertz. You know the Philadelphia Eagles have gotten their share of calls.
First of all, Zach Ertz doesn’t need to be traded. A strong argument can be made for the fact that the theory is ridiculous. The “Birds have two of the NFL’s top ten tight ends, and both are secured through the 2021 season.
If the Eagles use a few “12 personnel” packages (two wide receivers, two tight ends, and one running back), it’s hard to imagine that any NFL defense is going to be able to limit this Eagles offense with regularity. The “Birds” should enjoy what they have, use it to their advantage, and crack a few heads when in the red zone.
Who are we kidding though? Ertz is one of the three best tight ends in the league. It’s impossible to deny he has immense trade value and will be mentioned in quite a few trade rumors going forward.
Believe it or not, it’s already Sidney Jones’ fourth year with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Here’s a message for the Philadelphia Eagles. You will never get more for Sidney Jones than you can get for him right now. By now, we’ve discussed the experiment for so long that we’ve gotten weary. The”Birds” rolled the dice in the second round on an injured cornerback who had gotten first-round grades but saw his draft stock slip after tearing his Achilles on his Pro Day.
Let’s be blatantly honest here. The experiment hasn’t worked, and a couple of broken up passes down the stretch versus underperforming teams in 2019 doesn’t change that. No one cares who the Eagles were playing and what part of the game this happened in.
It’s year four with Sidney Jones, and we shouldn’t still be debating about whether or not he can win a starting job versus someone who was drafted in the fourth round. The Eagles have some options at cornerback. Their best option with Sidney Jones is seeing what they can get for him. An honorable mention goes to Rasul Douglas as well. Teams would be more interested in him than we’re letting on.
