Zach Ertz to the Arizona Cardinals today. That's my guess.

Anyway, it’s the right move for the Eagles. Needed to try to get something in return for Zach since he’s in his final contract year, and he benefits from going to a contender and living closer to home. He’s a California guy.
There’s not much to say beyond this. The whole offseason saga was tough for him, and he ultimately came back to the Eagles, but nothing about any of that changes his status here. He’s a Pro Bowler. A record holder. A Super Bowl winner.
Will update post when more details come out.
They got a corner and 5th –

Gowan was a sixth round draft pick out of UCF in this most recent draft. I have no idea if he’s any good. Will look for some video clips.
This is the moment you knew it was over –

Some people are asking if Ertz is eligible to play for the Cardinals this weekend. He is not. He has to wait until Week 7 to make his debut.
