NFL Trade Rumors: Cowboys Interested in Haason Reddick, Would Eagles Trade Him to Division Rival?

Rumor has it that the Dallas Cowboys are interested in a trade for Haason Reddick, but would the Philadelphia Eagles deal in the NFC East?

The Philadelphia Eagles may have to part ways with one of their best defensive players this offseason, and the Dallas Cowboys have reportedly shown interest in taking him off their hands.

Cowboys Interested in Haason Reddick

The Eagles are once again about to make some difficult choices regarding how to balance a loaded roster inside the salary cap, and Haason Reddick being traded is a very real possibility.

Reddick’s $15 million annual average is tied for 16th among edge rushers, but as he enters the final year of his deal, Reddick wants an extension. The Eagles don’t want to give Reddick another long-term deal, which is why they have given him permission to seek a trade.

An NFL source told CowboysSI.com that the Cowboys are investigating ways to acquire Reddick.

Eagles GM Howie Roseman is dealing with the issue while at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis on Tuesday.

“Haason obviously is an unbelievable player for the Philadelphia Eagles,” Roseman said. “Local kid, great success story. … Love having Haason. I think that anything you’re trying to do, you’re trying to blend obviously what you’re trying to do this year and how you’re going to look in the future.

“I think that’s the hardest job. I don’t want to get into any specifics with any conversations with players, but (I) have tremendous respect for the player and the person.”

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported that Reddick has received permission from the Eagles to seek a trade. That may be the case, but Reddick says he did not request it.

“Never asked for a trade. However, I do understand it’s a business. Preparing for whatever is next!” Reddick wrote on X (formerly Twitter).

One big question here is whether the Eagles would ever trade Reddick to one of their biggest rivals.

It would not be unheard of, as the Eagles have made NFC East trades before. The Eagles moved from the No. 12 pick to No. 10 in a trade with the rival Cowboys and selected Alabama receiver and Heisman Trophy winner DeVonta Smith in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Additionally, the Eagles traded quarterback Donovan McNabb to Washington back in 2010.

But it seems unlikely that Philadelphia would be willing to trade one of their best defensive players to the rival Cowboys. An Eagles source told SI that, obviously, Philly would prefer not to do that.

Reddick is from the Philly area and has spoken highly of the opportunity to play for the Eagles, telling CBS Sports prior to the 2023 season he was “hopeful” to land a new deal with the team and “represent my city for the rest of my career.”

Reddick signed a three-year, $45 million deal with Philadelphia prior to the 2022 season. He had 11 sacks this year after posting a career-high 16 in 2022. He has double-digit sacks in each of his last four seasons and is likely looking for a contract that would make him one of the highest-paid edge rushers in football.

Multiple teams have expressed interest in Reddick, Josina Anderson of CBS Sports reported.
