Potential Packers' target at TE already receiving heavy interest

Potential Packers' target at TE already receiving heavy interest”

Burton, an undrafted free agent, made one start in 2017 and saw his snaps increase while Ertz recovered from a concussion suffered in Week 13 against the Seattle Seahawks.

The Eagles and tight end Trey Burton are expected to part ways, according to a report from NFL Network. While they would like to keep him, being approximately $9 million over the salary cap makes doing so a little more hard. It seems possible that heavy interest from other teams could drive the Packers out of the market for Burton.

Having scored five touchdowns last season, Burton established himself as a solid playmaker that can beat safeties or linebackers that line up against him. There is also isn't the appeal of playing time as he would remain the backup to Pro Bowler Zach Ertz even if Brent Celek does decide to retire this offseason. Burton has the potential to be the most sought after tight end when the new league year begins on March 14. Rapoport suggested the interest wasn't there with the Eagles "stacked at tight end" and "dealing with cap considerations".
