The Tennessee Titans have to weigh all sides of a potential Zach Ertz trade.

Okay, now the Tennessee Titans are just being greedy. At least that’s how it looks on the outside looking in. Heading into the offseason, guys were falling off of the roster left and right due to those cap concerns that most of us discussed last season at about this time, but Jon Robinson stayed the course, righted the ship, and here we are.

The Tennessee Titans pulled off what could be considered as a lateral move by adding Janoris “Jackrabbit” Jenkins in place of Malcolm Butler, but they clearly upgraded by, in essence, acquiring Julio Jones in place of Corey Davis.

Now, rumor has it, thanks to stories like a recent drop by Bleacher Report’s Maurice Moton that the Titans are among the favorites, if not the favorite, to land Zach Ertz, widely considered as one of the NFL’s best tight ends. Some have even said that he’s the game’s third-best tight end behind Travis Kelce and George Kittle.

Here’s some fair warning. If Zach Ertz is healthy and that actually happened, this offense would be nearly impossible to stop. What if you were told there are a couple of reasons that support the theory that the Tennessee Titans shouldn’t trade for Zach Ertz though? Would you agree?

While the reasons for his addition are obvious, there are a few reasons why this would be something to pass on. Let’s explore the other side. Here are two reasons not to trade for the Philadelphia Eagles legend.
