One of the biggest questions for the Buffalo Bills during the 2021 offseason has been around the tight end position. There was plenty of speculation heading into the 2021 NFL Draft that the Bills might trade for tight end for Zach Ertz, a trade that obviously did not happen.
It has been almost six weeks since the conclusion of the draft, but the speculation around Ertz and the Bills continues. A recent tweet from ESPN’s Josina Anderson sounds as if there may still be some questions in Buffalo.
As of conversations today, my understanding is that apprehensions with production & consistency at the #Bills tight end spot are still a topic of conversation in Buffalo. Something to keep an eye on, especially with folks still staking out Zach Ertz's situation in Philly.— IG: JosinaAnderson (@JosinaAnderson) June 11, 2021
Fans could read into this tweet a number of ways, as it sounds like a few dots are being loosely connected between the Bills and the Philadelphia Eagles. The team may want to up his value by throwing Buffalo into the mix to entice someone else to pull the trigger. The player and his agent may be trying to force the team’s hand, too. There could also be legitimate interest from the Bills.
It is certainly worth monitoring in what could be a developing situation—but I won’t be holding my breath.
