So, it’s June 2 and Zach Ertz is still the Eagles tight end.

In what is shaping up to be the longest-running drama since Broadway theaters shut down because of the pandemic, the pissed-off Ertz is still on the roster and boy wonder GM Howie Roseman is still dreaming he’ll get a draft pick in a trade for the 30-year-old Ertz who was injured and had a down season in 2020 for the Birds.

SportsLine has released trade odds for which team could acquire Ertz and the Arizona Cardinals are among the favorites.

It puts the Cardinals at +500, the fifth-best odds.

The Buffalo Bills are the favorites at +200, followed by the Indianapolis Colts at +300 and the Los Angeles Chargers and Seattle Seahawks tied for third at +400 each.

SportsLine’s Matt Severance wrote of the Cardinals’ fit for Ertz: “In Arizona, Ertz could team with receivers DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk and A.J. Green to give Kyler Murray a scary group of pass-catching weapons.”

CBS Sports’ Jeff Kerr wrote of Arizona’s odds to land Ertz: “The Cardinals have Maxx Williams as the No. 1 tight end and could use an instant upgrade. For the team that added plenty of veterans this offseason, Ertz fits the bill.”

Four other teams are listed in SportsLine’s odds to acquire Ertz.

The Carolina Panthers come in at +700, the same odds for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Los Angeles Rams are +900 and the Washington Football Team is +1000.

The Bills restructured Stefon Diggs’ contract on Tuesday, leading to speculation that they did so in an attempt to make financial room for Ertz, thus making them the favorite to land the tight end.
