What are the Eagles doing on June 1st?
Tomorrow could be the end of an era for Zach Ertz. The Philadelphia Eagles are slated to make several moves on June 1st, including the releases of Alshon Jeffery and Malik Jackson. These two were made post-June 1st releases back in March, clearing $4 million more in cap space for the Eagles.
Alongside those two, one more player could be on their way out. Zach Ertz has made it very clear he no longer wants be in Philly. Moving Ertz starting June 1st would allow them to clear $3.6 million extra, totaling $8.5 million. The trade market has been quiet for Ertz, but, likely that Philadelphia was just waiting until June to strike a deal.
According to Over the Cap, the Eagles have $3.7 million in cap space and would have over $12 million after moving Ertz. Philadelphia could already have plans for the open space, reportedly inquiring about Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones.
