In a recent NFL development, there’s a chance that tight end Zach Ertz might find himself on the radar of two Super Bowl contenders.
The Arizona Cardinals recently honored Ertz’s request for a fresh start by placing him on waivers. Interestingly, it was his former teammate J.J. Watt who shared this news on X (formerly Twitter).
According to NFL insider Jordan Schultz from Bleacher Report, the Baltimore Ravens and the Philadelphia Eagles are teams to keep a close watch on if Ertz clears waivers. It’s worth noting that Ertz has his sights set on joining a championship-caliber team.

Both the Ravens (9-3) and the Eagles (10-1) boast the best records in their respective conferences. Schultz highlights that both teams have a need for a tight end, with Baltimore losing Mark Andrews for the season and Dallas Goedert dealing with injuries for the Eagles.
Ertz, who is 33 years old, had a notable stint with the Eagles from 2013 to 2021 before being traded to Arizona midseason. He was a beloved figure among Eagles fans and played a pivotal role in the team’s Super Bowl 52 championship-winning season, including catching the game-winning touchdown in their memorable victory over the New England Patriots.
