,58commentsMmhmm.EDTLast week, Eagles’ tight end Zach Ertz was quick to defend his (badass) wife Julie and her USWNT teammates from the narrative that they ran up the score and celebrated too much during their first World Cup win over Thailand.On Tuesday, CBS News tweeted about Ertz making his way to France to support Julie, but failed to include her name and made the news moreso about him than the incredibly talented woman actually competing on the World’s stage.It didn’t take long for the Philadelphia Eagles’ social media team to clap back Youth Alshon Jeffery Jerseys
, featuring none other than “Julie Ertz’s husband”, and the USWNT’s account appreciating the support.Aside from CBS News failing to actually feature the World Cup athlete, their tweet and article — from six days ago — also include a couple bits on incorrect information: The tweet says training camp, even though it was minicamp (but was correct in the article)Eagles head coach Doug Pederson told him to skip meetings on Tuesday to watch the first USWNT’s first World Cup match at homeZach Ertz finished camp before leaving for FranceZach even talked about watching the first match decked out in his American flag outfit Alshon Jeffery Jerseys Stitched
, including a pair of shorts that say “Mr. Ertz” on them. He may have a Super Bowl ring, but Julie already has one World Cup Championship (2015) and is barreling her way toward a second.

This development obviously comes as no surprise given that Long announced his retirement on Saturday evening. Placing Long on the reserve/retired list is essentially like cutting him Jalen Mills Jerseys Stitched
, except for the fact the Eagles still own his rights. Long is no longer taking up a spot on the Eagles’ 90-man roster. The team is also now clearing $5.3 million in cap space compared to $300,000 in dead money. The savings bring the Eagles up just over $27 million in cap space, according to Over The Cap.In the event that the Eagles suffer some defensive line injuries and try to coax Long out of retirement this year, that option is open. Such a scenario would require the Eagles activating Long to the roster.As of right now Black Vinny Curry Jerseys
, though, Long won’t be playing this year and this latest transaction reminds us of that sad fact.It remains to be seen how the Eagles will fill their open roster spot. They might look to sign one of their rookie minicamp tryout players ahead of their first OTA practice on Tuesday. Or maybe they’ll add a veteran defensive end. Or maybe they’ll just keep the roster at 89 players for now.
