This has been a fun NFL offseason in terms of player movement, as we were treated to a deep and talented free-agent crop as well as a slew of big trades around the league.

One recent move came out of nowhere and was a shock to just about everybody.

The Haason Reddick trade from the Philadelphia Eagles to the New York Jets at the tail end of free agency was unforeseen, and ESPN’s Tim McMahon shared a quote from Reddick’s father, saying he’s “baffled like everyone else.”

“I really can’t wrap my head around it. I’m baffled like everyone else,” his father, Raymond Matthew, told ESPN

Reddick’s father added, “He outperformed his contract…he just wanted market value. He just wanted numbers that made sense, which he didn’t get.”

Reddick has a $15 million cap hit in the final year of his contract in 2024 and was unable to land an extension from the Eagles after spending two years in Philly and compiling 27 sacks while playing in all 34 games.

Reddick has 50.5 sacks in the last four years and is one of the best pass rushers in the league, as he’ll immediately step in as a vital member of the Jets’ defense.

Philly signed pass rusher Bryce Huff early in the offseason, ironically taking him from the Jets, so this essentially wound up being a 1-for-1 swap.

Huff is 25 and put up his first double-digit sack season last year for the Jets and will have big shoes to fill taking over for Reddick.

The Jets only gave up a 2026 third-round pick in exchange for the star pass rusher who will be in pursuit of his fifth consecutive double-digit sack season.
