NFL Trade Rumors: Several Teams Interested in Eagles LB Haason Reddick

Haason Reddick has been a productive pass rusher for the Philadelphia Eagles, but he could soon head elsewhere with his name popping up as a trade target.

Haason Reddick has produced everywhere he’s played across his seven-year NFL career, particularly over the last two seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. However, Reddick could soon be headed to a new team, as he reportedly has several teams interested in trading for him heading into the final year of his contract.

Haason Reddick Reportedly Part of Trade Talks

Interest in Reddick has spiked, with Philadelphia seemingly at least exploring the possibility of moving him ahead of the final year of his contract.

CBS Sports’ Josina Anderson reported Wednesday that she has been told “several teams” have expressed interest in trading for Reddick. That lines up with prior reporting from the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Jeff McLane, who said in a column published Wednesday morning that trade talk around Reddick is heating up at the NFL combine.

On Monday afternoon, GM Howie Roseman and HC Nick Sirianni each expressed strong interest in keeping Reddick in Philadelphia when speaking to the media at the NFL Combine.

Needless to say, it seems clear that the Eagles are, at the very least, exploring their options with Reddick.

Reddick’s expiring contract — which has one year with $14.25 million in base salary remaining, according to Spotrac — could certainly detract at least some from his value with only one year of his services guaranteed to an acquiring team, barring any agreements on an extension.

Despite the potential drawbacks there, Reddick’s recent production could certainly be attractive to a variety of suitors across the NFL. He is coming off a second straight Pro Bowl selection in 2023 after tallying 38 tackles (29 solo), 13 tackles for loss, 11 sacks, and 23 quarterback hits across 17 regular-season starts.

Those numbers come on the heels of a career year in 2022, when Reddick racked up 49 tackles (35 solo), 16 sacks, 11 tackles for loss, five forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, and three pass breakups. He finished fourth in Defensive Player of the Year voting that season and was a second-team All-Pro selection.

Reddick has a strong track record of pressuring quarterbacks dating back to 2020, when he moved to outside linebacker with the Arizona Cardinals. He was effective again in 2021 with the Carolina Panthers before signing with the Eagles in free agency ahead of the 2022 campaign.

That pass-rushing skill is in high demand in the NFL, particularly with a proven track record of it from a player like Reddick.

He could slot in nicely with teams like the Detroit Lions or Houston Texans, two squads with ambitions of building on successful 2023 seasons who could certainly use Reddick as a complement to their primary pass rushers. The New England Patriots could be another sensible fit as Jerod Mayo looks to revamp a defensive unit that is a good scheme fit for Reddick.

All three of those teams have the salary cap space to potentially get a deal done if they prioritize it, though it’s unclear exactly what Philadelphia might ask for in return and whether those teams will be willing to pay the price.

Still, it’s clear there is and will continue to be interest in acquiring Reddick if a price can be agreed upon.
