Reddick was granted permission to hunt a trade when the Eagles rebuffed his bid for a new contract earlier within the offseason and the Eagles agreed to ship him to the Jets for a conditional 2026 draft decide.

“Haason had a great two years in Philadelphia,” Roseman stated, through Chris Franklin of “Obviously, he is a Camden kid who played at Temple, and we could not have been more excited to sign him. It’s bittersweet to lose a player and a person like that. . . . Through the conversations with the Jets, we felt it was a win-win position, but it’s always hard to get rid of players and people like Haason.”

The Eagles signed former Jet Bryce Huff in free company and have Brandon Graham, Josh Sweat, and Nolan Smith again on the sting of their protection.
