Philadelphia Eagles star tight end Zach Ertz is nearing the end of his current deal with the NFC East club. In fact, he has a potential out after the 2020 season.
So naturally, a contract extension has been the big news surrounding the tight end. But according to Zach Berman of The Athletic, Ertz isn’t concentrating on a long-term deal since the start of the regular season.
“Once the games started, my sole focus has been on trying to find ways to win football games and get open on time for Carson and be a great teammate, and since the season started I think I’ve done that. . . . In regards to the contract, that’s not even in my thought process,” Ertz said.
Obviously, many people have brought up the contract situation, and it is natural for them to believe it could be weighing heavily on the mind of Ertz.
