NFL insider Mike Garafolo pointed out earlier that the Eagles are in “no rush” to move Ertz. They don’t plan to move him until they’re satisfied with the compensation.
The Eagles were reluctant to even grant Ertz permission to seek a trade until very recently. It makes sense that they won’t give him up cheap now that they’re willing to move him.
Eagles have been trying to get Buffalo and the Chargers to up their offers, so far neither side has budged. https://t.co/bVk0B1AvYX

Zach Ertz is one of the longest tenured members of the team, joining them through the 2013 NFL Draft. He made the Pro Bowl three straight years between 2017 and 2019, and was a big part of their 2017 Super Bowl team.
But following a down 2020 combined with the departures of head coach Doug Pederson and quarterback Carson Wentz, Ertz has sought a change of scenery.
Given the huge cap hit he has in 2021 on an Eagles team that is still several million over the cap, you’d think the team would oblige him more quickly. But that hasn’t been the case.
Will either the Bills or the Chargers swing a trade for Zach Ertz?
