Jets looking to sweeten Haason Reddick’s deal

We heard recently that the Jets are unlikely to cave to Haason Reddick‘s request for an extension. However, that doesn’t mean the front office isn’t willing to work with their new pass rusher on a contract resolution, Ben Levine of Pro Football Rumors reports. According to ESPN’s Rich Cimini, the Jets will try to placate Reddick “by sweetening his current deal.”

Reddick is entering the final season of a three-year, $45 millions deal he signed with the Eagles back in 2022. As Cimini notes, the Jets assumed their offseason acquisition would be willing to play out his current contract before hitting free agency next offseason. That didn’t end up being the case, as the impending free agent stayed away from OTAs and mandatory minicamp while seeking a new deal.

Reddick is set to earn $15 millions in 2024, a total that just sneaks him into the top-20 among pass-rusher AAVs. The Jets are currently operating with around $6 millions in cap space (per, so the front office could easily find the cash to boost Reddick up the list of edge rusher earnings. While the Jets haven’t entirely closed the door on an extension for their new sack artist, it’s worth noting that the team decided to not pay Bryce Huff the ~$17 millions average annual value he earned on his three-year pact with the Eagles. Of course, the Jets decision to opt for Reddick instead of Huff was more about term, but it’s clear the team still has an intended edge-rusher budget for the 2024 campaign.
