Jets Trade For $45 Million Star Pass Rusher: Report

The New York Jets will acquire standout pass rusher Haason Reddick from the Philadelphia Eagles in one of the most significant moves of the NFL offseason.

ESPN's Adam Schefter revealed via X that the Jets have acquired Reddick in return for a conditional third-round choice in the 2026 NFL Draft. According to Schefter, the pick may be raised to a second-round selection based on playing time or sack output.

 With the two parties unable to reach an agreement on a new contract, the Eagles decided to acquire an asset for Reddick rather than let him go in free agency following the 2017 season.

Reddick needed some time to find his feet in the NFL. He'll now have the opportunity to write another chapter with the Jets as he enters his prime years.

Following a late pre-draft push with the Temple Owls, the Arizona Cardinals selected Reddick 13th overall in the 2017 NFL Draft. He appeared to be a first-round bust early in his career, totaling only 7.5 sacks in his first three seasons.

However, a position change to concentrate on pressuring the quarterback helped him have a breakout season in 2020, with 12.5 sacks and six forced fumbles. 

In 2021, he signed a one-year contract to reunite with his former Temple head coach Matt Rhule, who was coaching the Carolina Panthers. In his only season with the Panthers, he had 11 sacks.

Instead, Clowney elected to join the Panthers. Fortunately for the Jets, they now have an even more explosive pass rusher in his prime without having to give up too much draft capital.
