Ertz was traded from the Eagles to the Cardinals on Friday in exchange for cornerback Tay Gowan and a 2022 fifth-round pick, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Ertz caught four of six targets for 29 yards and a touchdown during the Eagles' loss to the Buccaneers on Thursday with Dallas Goedert (COVID-19) sidelined, but he's now been sent out west. Ertz was in search of a new contract with Philadelphia and has yet to discuss any deal with Arizona. The move comes after the Cardinals' starting tight end Maxx Williams went down with a potential season-ending injury, so it fills an immediate need. Ertz caught 18 of 31 targets for 189 yards and two touchdowns in six games for Philadelphia this season, and he should make his with his new team against Houston in Week 7 because he's already played this week and isn't eligible to suit up Sunday at Cleveland.
