The AP is reporting that the Commanders are signing ex-Eagles tight end Zach Ertz.

Ertz, 33, reunites with Kliff Kingsbury, Washington’s offensive coordinator who coached him with Arizona. He played parts of three seasons with the Cardinals before being released in late November.

A Super Bowl champion with Philadelphia, Ertz is the first big addition for new Commanders general manager Adam Peters. Ertz replaces Logan Thomas, who was released last week along with two offensive linemen: starting left tackle Charles Leno and center Nick Gates.

Ertz has played in 159 NFL regular-season and playoff games since making his debut in 2013 after being a second-round pick of the Eagles. Over the past decade, he has caught 745 passes for 48 touchdowns.
