Look for the Eagles’ new tight end-friendly head coach Doug Pederson to place even more emphasis on Ertz moving forward.
Ertz is one of the most potential-laden tight ends in the league, not that his first three years have been shabby. His yardage totals have risen each year, topping out at 853 yards in 2015. These numbers could have been even loftier had Ertz not lost out on a lot of snaps to Brent Celek, who is a much better blocker. Still, Ertz is clearly the star of this passing game, and the Eagles invested in his future with a lucrative six-year contract extension in January. Look for new tight end-friendly head coach Doug Pederson to place even more emphasis on Ertz moving forward.
