The Buffalo Bills are reportedly close to a deal for Eagles tight end Zach Ertz.
Ertz, 30, has been on the trade market all offseason with the Bills being linked as one of the leaders to acquire the tight end.
Despite plenty of rumors about the tight end’s days in Philadelphia being numbered, the Eagles still have not made a move.
But Merrill Reese, the Eagles’ play-by-play man for over 40 years, says a deal is reportedly close. Appearing on The National Football Show, Reese told Dan Sileo that the Bills are reportedly close to a deal for Ertz.
“The word today is that they are very close to a deal and I don’t have any inside information to substantiate this, but the word is that they’re close to a deal with Buffalo for Zach Ertz,” Reese told Sileo. “I believe you have as much chance of being on this roster as Zach Ertz in a few weeks.”
In his career with the Eagles, Ertz has recorded 561 receptions for 6,078 yards and 36 touchdowns. Ertz was named to three consecutive Pro Bowls (2017-2019) in his career in Philly and was a first-team All-Pro in 2018.
