Julie and Zach Ertz pay homage to the NFL legend with their newborn son’s name

Arizona Cardinals tight end Zach Ertz and his wife, USWNT football star Julie Ertz, paid homage to an NFL legend when they christened their new son.

former Philly Eagles turned Arizona Cardinals Tight end Zach Ertz is considered a legend, at least in the eyes of Philadelphia fans.

Ertz’s touchdown catch in Super Bowl LII resulted in a stripsack from Brandon Graham en route to a 41-33 win over the New England Patriots.

Now, with the Cardinals, Ertz is invoking the name of another legend in the form of his newborn son with his wife Julie. The boy’s name?

Madden Matthew Ertz, first name comes from legendary NFL coach and presenter John Madden, who sadly passed away earlier this year at the age of 85.

Zach Ertz invoked the name John Madden by naming his newborn son the NFL icon.

It is truly a remarkable way for Zach Ertz to honor John Madden. After all, Madden has a history of being a coach during the tenure of Hall of Famer tightend Dave Casper, with whom Ertz shares many similarities in terms of their influence on the game.

Plus, it’s another fitting tribute to Madden, who during his time with the NFL as both coach and host showed the game from multiple angles while also paying tribute to some of the game’s greatest players and calling out some of the sport’s greatest plays . Additionally, Madden played a key role in coaching some of the best players to come out of smaller schools, including Art Shell and Gene Upshaw.

Zach Ertz might be a really good tight end and might just have named his son after Madden to show his appreciation, but the Arizona Cardinals tight end is more than that. He’s just a great guy, and that’s showing his heart for the game and his appreciation for those who paved the way for guys like him to keep doing what they do.
