Garafolo on Ertz: ‘I Don’t Believe Everything is Forgotten and forgiven’
After months of speculation that Ertz would be moved, it was reported earlier in the week by Eagles Radio Network sideline reporter Howard Eskin that "there is a great chance" Ertz remains with the team to start the season.
Per the report, Ertz has been working out at the team facility the last two week with teammates and is 'over the issues' that surrounded the two sides last season.
But not so fast says NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.
While the veteran reporter agrees with Eskin that Ertz will report for the start of camp, he disputes that the animosity between player and team has been fully resolved.
"Having covered this situation, I don't believe everything is forgotten and forgiven. Even though he will report with the Eagles, I think there is a chance that he still will not be with the Eagles."
As reported, Ertz has been working out at the Nova Care Complex for the past few weeks, but as Garafolo explains, 'people weren't there' which allowed him to do his work and not to read to much into that.
"I'm not quite putting him on the roster for Week 1 with the Eagles just yet," Garafolo stated.
Ertz will turn 31 in November and is coming off a down year in which he was slowed by injury and is entering the final year of his contract.
