Proposed ‘Splash’ Trade Sends Eagles $45 Million Star to Ravens

The Philadelphia Eagles are facing a decision regarding Haason Reddick’s future after the team gave the star pass rusher permission to seek a trade. Philadelphia appears reluctant to sign Redick to a lucrative long-term extension.

Bleacher Report’s Alex Valentine offered three trade candidates the Eagles could consider to generate buzz ahead of the 2024 NFL Draft. One proposed trade calls for Philadelphia to send Redick to the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for the 30th overall pick in the first round.

“The Eagles have made it pretty clear that they are considering trading Redick before or during the draft,” Valentine wrote in his March 27, 2024 article, “Eagles’ Best Hypothetical Trades Made in the NFL Draft.” ” I wrote. According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, a $1 million roster bonus will be awarded by April 1st.

“…the Ravens typically don’t sign free agents until they no longer count toward compensation calculations. Trading one doesn’t affect the comp pick formula, and instead fills that need with game-changing talent.” “It will be,” Valentine continued. “Either way, the Eagles will benefit from expiring players and the Ravens will be ready for another shot at the AFC Championship.”

Eagles Rumors: Haason Reddick’s next contract is for 3 years and $47 million
Redick is expected to receive a hefty cap hit of $21.8 million in 2024. This is the final season of a three-year, $45 million contract. Spotrac projects that Redick’s next contract, a three-year, $47.4 million deal, will have a similar market value.

For economic reasons, this trade with the Ravens makes perfect sense. The Eagles are trading a huge contract for a first-round pick on a team-friendly rookie contract. Things get even more complicated when you think of this as a player-to-player trade.


The No. 30 pick is dangerously close to being a second-round pick. Will the player selected No. 30 be able to approach the level the Eagles expect from Redick? That would be a big job for a newcomer. The veteran is one of the NFL’s best defenders at quarterback, recording at least 11 sacks in four consecutive seasons. Reddick had 38 tackles, 23 quarterback hits, 13 tackles for loss and 11 sacks in 17 starts last season.
