2. EDGE Haason Reddick, Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles are either gearing up for a big-name pass rusher or going much younger on the defensive side of the ball, as both Reddick and Josh Sweat have been mentioned as possible trade targets. With our without Jadeveon Clowney coming back, adding Reddick is an easy way to keep the pass rush as violent as possible.

Reddick has recorded at least 10 sacks in each of the last four seasons, making two Pro Bowls and an All-Pro team in his two seasons with his hometown Eagles. Reddick, who will turn 30 in the middle of next season, has a penchant for creating turnovers after leading the NFL in forced fumbles with five in 2022.

Haason Reddick could be a stud for the Baltimore Ravens

Not only is Clowney a free agent, but so is versatile veteran linebacker Kyle Van Noy. The Ravens will likely use one of their top draft picks on a defensive end, but more is needed if they want a front that can get adequate pressure on Patrick Mahomes and Joe Burrow.

Reddick might be looking for a trade if he believes the Eagles aren't going to pay him the contract he deserves, and the Ravens might need to factor in an extension if they want to trade for him. If they feel comfortable paying that price, Reddick seems like an almost perfect fit for this defense.
