From Philadelphia to Glendale and now Canton, it has been a whirlwind for TE Zach Ertz over the past few weeks. After parts of nine seasons with Philadelphia, Ertz played his last game with the Eagles during their Week 6 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Oct. 14. He recorded a touchdown reception in the game and was traded the next day to the Arizona Cardinals.

Ertz made his debut for Arizona during its Week 7, 31-5 victory over the Houston Texans on Oct. 24. In this game, he set an NFL record by becoming the first player to score a touchdown in back-to-back weeks for two different teams.

To commemorate this moment, the Pro Football Hall of Fame received the game-used gloves and ball from Ertz when he recorded his 47-yard touchdown reception with the Cardinals. These items are now on display in the Hall’s Pro Football Today Gallery along with other artifacts from the 2021 NFL season.
