The #Eagles have agreed to terms with pass rusher Haason Reddick, source says. Three years, $45 million with $30 million fully guaranteed at signing. Max value $49.5 million.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) March 14, 2022
The Camden native and former #Temple Owl is coming home.
$30 million of the contract is guaranteed. It can be worth as much as $49 million. The signing fixes a serious issue for the Eagles last year, lack of an outside pass rush. Outside rushers tallied only 10.5 sacks last year, with 7 coming from Josh Sweat. They were 29th in total sacks last season. He replaces Derek Barnett on the roster. Ironically he was taken 1 pick ahead of Derek Barnett in the 2017 draft.
At an average of $15 million per year, The deal makes him the 17th highest paid edge rusher.
The Temple Alum had 23.5 sacks combined in the last two seasons. The last time the Eagles had a pass rusher with double-digit sacks was 2018 when Fletcher Cox had 10.5. In addition to the sacks, he has a combined 27 tackles for loss, 8 forced fumbles, and 34 QB hits. He has the 5th most sacks in the NFL the past couple years.
Haason Reddick was drafted to the Cardinals out of Temple. He played out his rookie contract, before the Cardinals declined his 5th year option. In that 4th year he had his first double digit sack season. That offseason he signed a one year deal with the Panthers. In had another double digit sack year in his only season in Carolina. Now the Camden native returns home to play his next 3 seasons in Philadelphia.
He will likely line up opposite Josh Sweat, who just last year signed a 3 year extension keeping him in Philly through the 2024 season.
