The New York Jets are losing key player Haasson Reddick after loosing Bryce Huff to the Philadelphia Eagles.

After the departure of Bryce Huff, the New York Jets bolstered their defense by trading for Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Haason Redick in what could be a smart move.Huff signed a three-year contract with the Hawks, and now Redick is headed to the Jets in exchange for a conditional 2026 third-round pick. According to NFL Network, if Redick plays at least 67.5 percent of the time for the Jets in 2024 and completes at least 10 sacks, it could become a second-round pick in 2026.Also, the Jets will pay $14.5 million of Redick’s total salary in 2024, which is the last year of his contract with the Hawks. The Hawks will pay Redick the $1 million player bonus he was due earlier this month.

It shows a huge commitment on the part of the Jets, who want to use the addition of veteran running back Aaron Rodgers to their team. His first year in New York was cut short by a serious injury in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills, but the Jets are fully committed to making year two a success. The Jets have one of the best defenses in the NFL, but have struggled on offense, and haven’t made the playoffs since 2010. This is the longest drought in the NFL and they were hoping to end last season. When Rodgers got hurt, every Jets fan, teammate, and front office felt down because it seemed like the entire offseason was wasted. There have also been injuries on the defensive end and offensive line, but Redick’s performance so far suggests he won’t have any issues with his fitness.

Redick has only missed one game in his entire NFL career, which began in 2017 when he was selected 13th overall by the Arizona Cardinals.Redick has definitely improved over the last four years. His 50.5 sacks in that span ranked fourth in the NFL behind T.J. Watt, Myles Garrett and Trey Hendrickson.The Jets got their first look at Jadeveon Clowney, the former Baltimore Ravens linebacker and 2014’s No. 1 overall pick. But when Clowney agreed to join the Carolina Panthers, they turned their attention to Redick because Huff had actually taken his spot on the Eagles.

Redick first complained about his contract with the Hawks in February and was given until the 2024 season to seek a trade. After 11 sacks and 38 tackles last season, Redick felt his contract did not reflect his contributions and is now hoping to rebuild with the Jets. This is a critical year for the Jets as this could be the best year they get from Rodgers before he considers retirement. Jets fans have been waiting over a year to see him play well, and the team needs a good season. With Redick in the lineup, they’re looking to make sure their defense is as strong as it was in 2023.
