The Cardinals drafted Temple LB Haason Reddick 13th overall in the 1st round of the NFL Draft. Reddick played DE almost exclusively in college but figures to play a standup rush role as a 3-4 OLB in Arizona. He'll likely cut well into OLB Markus Golden's playing time right away, but Golden -- along with re-signed OLB Chandler Jones -- will limit Reddick's early playing-time ceiling. Keep that in mind for his IDP outlook over the next couple of years. (Golden is signed through 2018.)
The Eagles have agreed to a 3-year, $45 million deal with former Panthers DE Haason Reddick, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. The deal includes $30 million in guarantees and could reach $49.5 million in total money. Reddick took a 1-year "prove it" deal with Carolina as a 2021 free agent -- and he proved it. Reddick followed a 12.5-sack breakout in Arizona with 11 more sacks and a career-high 18 QB hits with the Panthers. Reddick could see time at either end for the Eagles, who have a bit more sorting out to do at DE. Josh Sweat is coming off an emergent campaign -- that saw him play on the left side most often -- while Brandon Graham is coming off injury and heading into his age-34 campaign.
The Panthers on Wednesday place EDGE Haason Reddick on the COVID list. The timing figures to knock him out for Sunday's game against the Saints. He joins DE Brian Burns and LB Shaq Thompson there, with backup DE Marquis Haynes also on the list. We'll see if any among the earlier 3 can make it back for the game.
The Panthers have reached a 1-year deal with EDGE Haason Reddick, with $6 million guaranteed and a max value of $8 million. We're a bit surprised that Reddick didn't find more on the open market after more than doubling his career sack total with 12.5 for the Cardinals in 2020. But he lands in Carolina with his college coach (HC Matt Rhule) and likely in an edge rotation with Brian Burns and Yetur Gross-Matos. If this landing spot gives Reddick DE designation for IDP leagues, then it'll be a solid fantasy outcome for him. His arrival can't hurt a defense that posted the 12th-lowest pressure rate in 2020, but Reddick will need to show it was more than a 1-year flash.
Cardinals OLB Haason Reddick (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the 49ers. He entered the day questionable but out in a pair of limited practices and played 80 snaps in last week’s win over the Eagles. Reddick has delivered 6 sacks and forced 5 fumbles over the past 2 games. He’s probably worth rolling with in IDP leagues where you’re considering him
The Cardinals have replaced LB Haason Reddick in base defense with Joe Walker, Cards Wire reports. “I think Joe Walker, right now, has earned the right to play the base downs and Haason, right now, is better at playing the sub downs.” Reddick had been delivering nice fantasy numbers for us, but he'll be useless as a sub-package player. Walker also won't carry much value if he's still sharing the position with Reddick.
