TE Zach Ertz Released by AZ Cardinals
7 months ago

Veteran TE Zach Ertz has asked for release from Arizona and his wishes have been fulfilled.

Zach Ertz, the 33-year-old tight end, has been officially released from the Arizona Cardinals. Ertz had requested his release to have a chance to play for a Super Bowl contender. This decision makes sense for both parties involved. Trey McBride, the young tight end, has taken over Ertz’s playing time in Arizona, effectively making Ertz a cheerleader. With Ertz not contributing to the team and the Cardinals sitting at a record of 2-10, there is little left for them to play for except pride.


Both parties have agreed to part ways, allowing McBride to have a full chance to develop into a fantasy star during the remainder of the season, and giving Zach Ertz an opportunity to contribute to a contender.


Ertz has been on IR since late October and has not played a single snap for the Cardinals since then.  He concludes his time in 2023 in Arizona with 27 catches for 187 yards and 1 touchdown.
