Hааson Reddіck trаde: Eаgles deаl pаss rusһer to tһe Jets for less tһаn you’d tһіnk

The writing had been on the wall for awhile, but with the addition of Bryce Huff and a restructured deal for Josh Sweat, Haason Reddick was on the trade block, and the Eagles finally found a suitor. Philly’s top edge rusher will now be heading to the Jets — where Huff played last season — for surprisingly little: a conditional draft pick in 2026.

The pick in 2026 is a third-round pick that could be a second rounder if Reddick hits 67.5 percent playtime and has 10 or more sacks this season, per Adam Schefter. The Jets will also take on the DE’s contract cost for 2024, save for his $1 million roster bonus.

While Reddick being traded was assumed, it doesn’t make it any better for the Eagles defense. Consistently one of the top producers over the past two seasons, the DE was looking to be paid among the best at his position following the 2024 season, but the Eagles weren’t looking at a long-term deal — particularly with Huff, Sweat, Brandon Graham re-signing, and Nolan Smith expected to make a leap in Year 2.

Reddick wasn’t as productive in the back half of the 2023 season, but the Eagles defense struggled as a whole, and the edge rusher was the victim of a mid-season DC and scheme change. Still, his two seasons in his hometown were notable, and he had back-to-back Pro Bowl seasons with double-digit sacks.
