Philadelphia Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni and New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh.
The New York Jets have landed two-time Pro Bowl edge rusher Haason Reddick via a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles.

While this might come across as bad news to Eagles fans, they’re unlikely to be surprised as reports from after the Super Bowl last month claimed that the player was looking for a significant raise in salary and had been given permission to seek a trade.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Reddick has been sent to New York in exchange for a conditional 2026 third-round pick. Should he record 10 or more sacks and play 67.5 percent of defensive snaps next season, the pick will be converted into a 2026 second-rounder.

While Reddick refuted claims of him wanting a trade, it became clear that his time in Philly was coming to an end once the team acquired Bryce Huff.

In any case, Reddick’s numbers suggest he’s due a raise in pay. He has registered 27 sacks, 24 tackles for loss, 49 quarterback hits, five forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, and four passes defensed in 34 games since joining the former NFC Champions in 2022.

He has also gone four straight seasons with over 10 sacks and went to the Pro Bowl in both of the campaigns spent with the Eagles.

The New York Jets Have Made An Immediate Upgrade

The two-time second-team All-Pro was hopeful of earning himself a bigger deal after making 16 sacks and helping Philadelphia reach the Super Bowl in 2022 but didn’t get his deal reworked after the team signed him to a three-year contract to the tune of $45 million a year prior.

Y’all see it, y’all know what’s going on,” he said to reporters last season after he was asked whether he was underpaid. “I’m worried about being the best version of myself, and then everything will sort itself out, truly.

The Eagles will have their work cut out for them replacing such an effective defensive player, despite recent signings. The New York Jets, on the other hand, have strengthened a defense that was already one of the best in the NFL.
