Zach Ertz: We still have unfinished business and I’d love to be a part of it

The Cardinals’ 2021 season ended with a collapse, as the team lost five of its last six games for an early exit from the postseason.

Arizona acquired tight end Zach Ertz midseason and the move worked out well, as he caught 56 passes for 574 yards and three touchdowns in 11 games. Like the rest of the Cardinals, Ertz had a forgettable night in Monday’s Wild Card matchup with the Rams, catching three passes for 21 yards.

Ertz is set to become an unrestricted free agent in March, but said on Tuesday that he would like to continue with the Cardinals.

“I still feel like we have unfinished business as a team. I would love to be a part of it,” Ertz said, via Alex Weiner of SI.com. “But that just might be out of my control.”

Ertz, who turned 31 in November, should be in demand for any team that needs a tight end this offseason.

In 17 games between Philadelphia and Arizona this year, he finished with 74 receptions for 763 yards with five TDs.

  1. He’s no spring chicken, but you can see by the numbers this year he still has a lot left in the tank. Can grab 80 passes or so next year and 5-7 td’s with the right QB. He can still block as well.

  2. Ertz should want the Cardinals and AZ should want Ertz. That trade worked well for both. Get it done.

  3. Loved Ertz…

    But any Cardinal fan will tell you that the loss of Maxx Williams early in the season was a HUGE blow to the Cardinals.

  4. I feel for this guy – he has had two toads as QB’s this year – the running back from Philthy and the running back from Arizona – both impersonating QB’s. GM’s need to wise up – just because you put a guy behind center does not make him a QB. He actually has to have talent throwing the ball to more than just one other guy.

  5. Zach, Zach, Zach, you didn’t want go to the Packers when Tonyan went on IR. You believed the hype of the Cards and the weather in PHX were for you. You’re stuck now and taking a pay cut next season, IF they re-sign you.

  6. Translation … I hope the Cards pay me the most. Because I’m playing for whoever does.
