The Haason Reddick trade rumors have quietened down as of late, but with all 32 GM’s currently mingling in Indianapolis, it wouldn’t be entirely shocking to see them pick up steam once again. Here are 5 potential suitors for the esteemed Eagles‘ pass-rusher.

Cleveland Browns

The Cleveland Browns don’t have a first-round pick in 2024 and they’re currently set to lose a huge chunk of their front seven. While they might not have a ton of cap space to facilitate an up-front payment of Haason Reddick, they’re going to need to replace and upgrade Za’Darius Smith’s vacancy somehow.

Browns GM Andrew Berry was once a disciple of Howie Roseman prior to getting a promotion in Cleveland which might give him a slight edge when it comes to negotiating a price.

Cleveland isn’t the most likely landing spot, but it all depends on price. If it meant keeping him out of the NFC, the Eagles might consider the Browns to be a more suitable trade partner than others in this list.

Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons have an emerging offense but work needs to be done defensively. They ranked 22nd in sacks last season and are bound to attack free agency when it comes to pass-rushing help. The addition of Haason Reddick on a cheap deal would allow them to spend a pretty valuable first-round pick on a longer-term option, while letting him learn under one of the most dominant forces in Football.

Haason Reddick is going to be 30 years old next season and is still performing at an explosive level. With that said, a short-term deal would be a good idea if the price is attractive enough.

Jacksonville Jagaurs

The Jaguars might be playoff contenders next year, but the Eagles won’t need to worry about them until a potential Super Bowl matchup. They’re also armed with $28M in cap space and a mid-round selection in the 1st that could be spent on additional pass-rushing help.

Free agency is loaded with veterans but Reddick’s up-front cost might actually be cheaper, or at least more efficient than someone like Danielle Hunter.

The Jags have never been afraid to pay big-name pass-rushers and if the price is right, his presence would allow Jacksonville to use that first-rounder on a franchise wideout, or some interior offensive line help.

Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings were a 7-win team last year and are currently in a state of flux. With $38M in cap space, they can afford to replace Hunter with a name like Reddick, who is arguably the better pass-rusher going into 2024.

Minnesota failed to replace Za’Darius Smith when he departed for Cleveland, and Marcus Davenport was only able to amass 2 sacks in 4 games last season. They need a home-run hitter and there’s none bigger than Reddick.

Carolina Panthers

Haason Reddick had a great year with the Carolina Panthers not too long ago, putting up 18 QB hits and 11 sacks. Since joining Philadelphia, he’s only built on that legacy.

The Panthers’ defense is legit and is arguably one of the best in the NFC, whilst their offense could do with a lot of work. It would make sense for Carolina to at least explore the idea of a reunion. They have the cap space to do so and it would allow the Panthers to use draft assets on surrounding Bryce Young with the help he so desperately needs.
