Zach Ertz buzz hitting new heights
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Expectations continue to skyrocket for Eagles second-year tight end Zach Ertz. Tight ends coach Ted Williams was the latest to chime in, calling Ertz "one of the best route-runners I've ever seen."

"He takes a lot of pride in that," Williams added to Philly.com. "He has a lot of confidence. He's hard to defeat, because he doesn't take defeat very well. He feels, 'You can't cover me.'"

The website noted Ertz caught four touchdowns in the second half of last season and claimed he's poised to break out this year. Ertz and fellow tight end Brent Celek will have "a much bigger role in the passing game," the report said.

Ertz said he's taking every rep "personally."

"If somebody beats me, I'm going to take that personally. I want to be great," he said. "That's my goal each and every day I step out onto the field. I want to prove to myself and everybody else how good I can be, and I'm willing to work as hard as I need to achieve that goal."

Zach Ertz features heavily in first preseason game
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Eagles tight end Zach Ertz was a favorite target in the first preseason game Friday against the Bears.

Ertz, who played most of the first half with two different quarterbacks, and was targeted five times, good for second on the team. He hauled in four of those passes for 60 yards, including a long reception of 34 yards.

Ertz was useful in his rookie season, but is expected to take on a larger role this season.

Report: Zach Ertz to be Eagles' top red-zone receiver
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Second-year tight end Zach Ertz will be the Eagles' "most utilized pass-catching weapon in the red zone," reports Birds 24/7. Ertz caught five touchdowns in the last nine games last year, and the website would not be surprised if he led the team in receiving scores.

"He attacks the ball in the air, can box defenders out and is a precise route runner," the report said of Ertz, a 6-5, 250-pounder.

Zach Ertz makes biggest jump among Eagles tight ends
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Eagles offensive coordiantor Pat Shurmur said the tight end group has really improved, especially second-year pro Zach Ertz.

"When you look at each guy, Brent Celek is very veteran, but he's in great shape. He looks terrific. James Casey kind of does everything we ask him to do, whether it's run block, pass block. He's really good even out of the back ield at times," Shurmur said.

"Then Ertz has probably made the biggest improvement because he's the youngest guy. I think we can use any combination of one, two or three of them at any time. Really, we train our guys. Receivers and tight ends, they're all just skill players to us."

The Philadelphia Inquirer expects the tight ends, specifically Ertz, to benefit from the departures of receivers DeSean Jackson and Jason Avant.
