Eagles Star Haason Reddick Addresses Trade Rumors Ahead of Contract Year

Two days after rampant trade rumors claimed Philadelphia Eagles’ Haason Reddick wanted out of Philly, the star linebacker has slammed the lid shut on all speculation.

In the wake of multiple reports saying that Reddick requested permission to seek a trade this past weekend, the linebacker dispelled those claims on Tuesday.

“Never asked for a trade,” the two-time Pro Bowler posted to social media. “However, I do understand it’s a business. Preparing for whatever is next!”

Reddick, who signed a three-year, $45 million deal with the Eagles in 2022, is entering the final year of his contract in 2024. 

After two productive years with the Eagles, Reddick wanted to get an extension done this offseason, as reported by Bleacher Report’s Jordan Schultz.

“I would like to get an extension done here at home,” Reddick told Schultz. “At no point did I ever tell the organization I want to be traded. … This is home for me. I was born and raised here. Two of the most fun years playing football in my life came here. I’ve cherished being an Eagle.”

The 29-year-old linebacker played an integral role in the Eagles’ 2023 season and an even bigger one in last year’s Super Bowl run, when he tallied 3.5 sacks in the postseason. Reddick has recorded 11 sacks or more in every season since his 2020 campaign with the Arizona Cardinals and has started every game for the Eagles during his time in Philly.

Despite Reddick’s reported intention to stay with the Eagles, his latest tweet may suggest Philadelphia's front office has other plans this offseason. Reddick is due $14.25 million in base salary in 2024 and will have a monster $21.4 million cap hit. 

Coming off a 2023 season landslide and early playoff exit, the Eagles also have to handle other star players’ contract extensions—notably, Landon Dickerson and DeVonta Smith—as well as make decisions on a long line of pending free agents including D’Andre Swift, Fletcher Cox, and Brandon Graham.
