Philadelphia Eagles edge rusher Haason Reddick received permission to seek a trade, sources told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
Philadelphia will only do a deal if the compensation and cap considerations make sense, according to John Clark of NBC Sports Philadelphia. They’re trying to find a win-win for both sides, Clark adds.
Reddick is entering the final season of a three-year, $45-million deal signed with the Eagles in 2022. He’s set to have a $21.8-million cap hit in 2024, according to Over The Cap.
The 29-year-old has 27 sacks in two years in Philadelphia after racking up 23.5 sacks across two campaigns between the Carolina Panthers and Arizona Cardinals. Reddick has 50.5 sacks over the last four seasons, ranking fourth in the NFL behind T.J. Watt, Myles Garrett, and Trey Hendrickson.
The edge-rusher market has skyrocketed recently, with Joey Bosa, Nick Bosa, Garrett, and Watt all making at least $25 million per season.
Reddick’s $15 million per year salary ranks 18th highest among NFL edge rushers, behind players such as Emmanuel Ogbah, Von Miller, Harold Landry, and Shaquil Barrett.
The Eagles have $20.2 million in cap space, per Over The Cap. They’ve used many resources on the defensive line, selecting Jordan Davis, Jalen Carter, and Nolan Smith in the first round of the last two drafts.
