Zach Ertz shows up at Philadelphia Eagles training camp with a fresh cut and blonde hair.
Coming off the worst season of his career out of Stanford, Ertz arrived at Eagles training camp with bleached hair blonde enough to make Billy Idol sneer in approval. With a rebel yell, Ertz is sure making his presence felt on what should be his final flight with the Birds. If general manager Howie Roseman gets the right offer for him, Ertz could be getting his sweet Philadelphia freedom.
With hair the color of Ric Flair’s, Ertz is clearly stylin’ and profilin’ while at Eagles training camp.

It doesn’t really matter how good Ertz thinks he looks in his new shade of lettuce. He cannot have another awful year on the gridiron. Ertz is coming off a season where he had career-lows in games (11), receptions (36), yardage (335) and touchdowns (one). Last year was the only season where he did not average at least 10 yards per reception. At 31 years old, will Ertz have a second act?
With a head coach who is bad at the podium and really into competitive games of rock, paper, scissors, Philadelphia feels like a lock to have a top-10 pick once again next year. Ertz may be a Super Bowl champion, but he may have to fly to greener pastures with his blonde hairdo if he wants to sniff the NFL playoffs this season. White wedding or not, it’s a nice day to start again.
If this new look helps Ertz feel good, then we can only hope it helps him play good this season.
