Ertz embraced the move. The Cardinals stood atop the conference with an undefeated record. He had close friend Jordan Hicks on the roster. Ertz’s wife, Julie, also grew up in nearby Mesa.

To begin the integration process, Ertz flew with the team to Cleveland. It’s where his relationship with quarterback Kyler Murray started and was an excellent way for them to begin building chemistry.

Ertz looked refreshed in his introductory press conference, sporting a white Cardinals T-shirt and a gray team cap. Ertz expressed his excitement in joining the NFL’s hottest team (at the time) with one of the league’s most potent offenses.

Ertz had 66 receiving yards on three receptions and a 47-yard touchdown, the longest of his career, in his first game as a Cardinal October 24th against the Texans. The Cardinals won 31-5.
