Instant analysis of Eagles trading All-Pro pass rusher Haason Reddick to the Jets

We wrote about Haason Reddick and the Eagles, discussing a potential extension or the All-Pro pass rusher taking his talents elsewhere.

Adam Schefter reports that Philadelphia is trading Reddick to the New York Jets.

Reddick finished the year with 11.0 sacks and 38 tackles in 17 regular-season games, and he recorded double-digit sacks for the fourth consecutive season, leading his team in that category and tying for 15th in the NFL.

Had Nolan Smith shown that he was ready to be an elite pass rusher, the idea would have been to cut or trade Reddick, saving the Eagles $11 million after the dead money allotment.

Here’s an instant trade analysis with the move set to be completed.

Reddick was still productive

Reddick finished the year with 11.0 sacks and 38 tackles in 17 regular-season games, and he recorded double-digit sacks for the fourth consecutive season, leading his team in that category and tying for 15th in the NFL.

Outside of the sacks, though, Reddick’s numbers were poor by his standards.

His 38 tackles were the second-lowest mark of his career, and he didn’t force or recover a fumble after forcing five and recovering three last season. His snap share (74 percent) remained identical, indicating the drop-off wasn’t due to a lack of opportunities but mismanagement from coaches.

He’ll now swap teams with Bryce Huff.

Eagles may have over thought things

Over last 4 years, Reddick ranks 4th among all NFL defensive players in sacks (50.5), 11th in QB hits (86), 8th in tackles for loss (51) and 9th in total pressures (235).

Reddick ranked 7th among edge rushers in pass run win rate in 2024, while Huff ranked 8th.
