Jets acquiring edge Haason Reddick from Eagles

The Jets have found their veteran pass-rusher to help replace Bryce Huff. Ironically, it’s from the team Huff signed with. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Jets are acquiring Haason Reddick from the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Jets are sending the Eagles a conditional third-round pick in 2026 that can become a second. The pick improves if Reddick plays at least 67.5 percent of the defensive snaps and records at least ten sacks this season.

Reddick has hit double-digit sacks in each of the last four seasons. Here are those sack numbers:

2023: 11
2022: 16
2021: 11
2020: 12.5

Reddick has also played at least 70 percent of the snaps in each of those seasons with three teams (Eagles, Panthers, Cardinals).

Reddick was entering the final season of his three-year deal he signed with Philadelphia before the 2022 season. The Jets will pay Reddick $14.5 million this season, including a $14.25 million base salary and a $250,000 workout bonus. The Eagles will pay Reddick his $1 million roster bonus that is due on Monday. It is possible, and perhaps likely, the Jets give Reddick a new contract.

Reddick gets the Jets’ pass-rush rotation back into better shape after losing Huff. Reddick joins Jermaine Johnson, Will McDonald, John Franklin-Myers and Micheal Clemons among the edge rotation.
