Teams will restructure deals to keep their best players. Ertz will be available as well as a few others. No need to trade.... there will be Cap casualties 

The reason why you would trade for them is bc you're not guaranteed to get them on the FA market. It takes the risk out of it.

But then ties you to their current contract.  Which may be much higher than you'd pay in the open market, particularly considering the cap issue next year.
