The clock is ticking, and with the NFL trade season officially opening in just eight days, the Eagles and boy genius GM Howie Roseman have to trade tight end Zach Ertz or cut him.

Obviously, the Eagles, who have decided their TE isn’t worth the money he wants, would prefer to receive something in return in a trade.

And Ertz prefers to be cut so he can negotiate with another team.

On Sunday night Michael Silver, that the Eagles had received trade calls surrounding Ertz and that the team prefers to gain compensation over outright release.

Ertz would obviously like input in his next destination and the lack of a no-trade clause means the Eagles could ship the talented tight end anywhere they choose.

The 30-year-old Ertz is coming off one of his worst seasons as a pro, logging 36 receptions for 335 yards and one touchdown in 11 games.

The three-time Pro Bowler will now seek a fresh start, while the Eagles will look to extend Dallas Goedert and continue working to get under the salary cap.
