The big NFL dominoes keep falling as training camps get rolling.

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers have patched things up, which was the biggest domino to consider before camps opened. Second overall pick Zach Wilson inked his rookie deal with the New York Jets, helping to cement all 259 picks as under contract.

So what's next? Some major free agents remain on the market, big extensions need to get done, trades could happen and notable position battles are on deck, to name a few.

Here's a look at the biggest dominoes yet to fall as the NFL calendar turns to August.

 

Zach Ertz Drama

The Zach Ertz drama in Philadelphia is one of the last big points of speculation yet to find a resolution.

Ertz has reported to training camp with the Eagles, but by all accounts, the veteran tight end would still prefer a reworked deal or a trade.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported on Inside Training Camp Live: "He's still not happy. He didn't get that contract extension last season, and nothing has changed right now."

Ertz, 30, played in 11 games last year and scored one touchdown. The Eagles blew up the team around him this offseason, most notably trading quarterback Carson Wentz. Garafolo previously reported Ertz would have loved to follow Wentz to Indianapolis.

But the Eagles have taken a hard-line stance, and Ertz remains under contract for one more season. One way or another, this figures to hit a boiling point soon.

 

One Last Blockbuster Trade?

Who said the Julio Jones trade was the last big blockbuster the NFL offseason had in store?

The speculated standoff between the Miami Dolphins and cornerback Xavien Howard came to a head when the star defender went public with a trade request Tuesday. Several teams, including two playoff teams, have since contacted the Dolphins about a deal, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

No wonder, as the 28-year-old led the NFL in interceptions in two of the last three seasons. His play last year, highlighted by 10 interceptions, earned him an 87.3 Pro Football Focus grade, putting him in the "Pro Bowler" grade just shy of "Elite."

Howard inked a five-year, $75.3 million contract in 2019, but he's the second-highest-paid corner on the team after the Dolphins signed Byron Jones to a five-year, $82.5 million deal in 2020.

Given Howard's own hard-line stance, a trade could shake up the playoff picture before the season starts.
