  • Selected by Philadelphia in the second round (35th overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft and acquired by the Cardinals in a trade during the 2021 season; Arizona traded a 2022 5th round pick and CB Tay Gowan to the Eagles for Ertz.
  • Among TEs dating back to his first year in the NFL in 2013, ranks 2nd in receptions (635), 2nd in receiving yards (6,841), 4th in touchdown receptions (41), and 4th in 100-yard receiving games (12).
  • His 635 receptions rank 9th in NFL history among TEs and represent the fourth-highest total in league history by a TE in his first nine seasons behind only Travis Kelce (704), Jason Witten (696) and Tony Gonzalez (648). In NFL history, the only TEs to reach 600 receptions in fewer games than Ertz (128) were Kelce (110) and Witten (125).
  • Set the NFL single-season record for receptions by a TE with 116 catches in 2018, surpassing the mark of Jason Witten (110 in 2012). His 116 catches that season set an Eagles single-season franchise record and were the second most in the NFL, trailing only Michael Thomas (125).
  • The 2021 season marked Ertz's sixth with 70+ receptions. He joined Tony Gonzalez (14), Jason Witten (9), Travis Kelce (7) and Antonio Gates (6) as the only TEs in NFL history with at least six seasons of 70+ receptions.
  • The 2021 season was Ertz's seventh with 700 receiving yards. He joined Tony Gonzalez (14), Jason Witten (12), Antonio Gates (10), Shannon Sharpe (9) and Travis Kelce (8) as the only TEs in NFL history with at least seven seasons of 700+ receiving yards.
  • In Week 11 of the 2021 season at Seattle, recorded eight receptions for 88 yards and two TDs. It marked just the second time in franchise history a TE had 8+ receptions, 80+ receiving yards and 2+ TD receptions in a game: Jackie Smith (9 for 212 yards and 2 TDs) on 10/13/63 vs. Pittsburgh.
  • Playing his first game with the Cardinals in Week 7 vs. Houston last season, Ertz caught three passes for 66 yards, including a career-long 47-yard TD reception. Combined with his five-yard TD catch in Week 6 in his final game with Philadelphia, Ertz became the first player in NFL history to have a TD reception in back-to-back games in a season for two different teams.
  • Caught the game-winning touchdown in Super Bowl LII that gave the Eagles a 38-33 lead with just over two minutes left in regulation.
  • Ertz's wife, Julie, is a Mesa, AZ native who attended Dobson High School from 2006-2010 before going on to global soccer stardom. She is a member of the U.S. Women's National Team and currently plays for Angel City FC of the National Women's Soccer League.
