Linebacker Haason Reddick led the Eagles with 16 sacks in his first season with the team. He signed a three-year free agent deal last offseason.
Reddick was the Cardinals’ mistake.
they drafted him 13th overall in 2017 after Mahomes was grabbed by the Chiefs. He struggled for three seasons as they tried to make him an off-ball linebacker. But even when he played as an edge defender in 2017 and 2019, he showed nothing.
He exploded with 12.5 sacks in 2020 and the Cardinals did not re-sign him.
They could have taken a risk, signed him to a long-term deal and traded Chandler Jones, coming off a season-ending injury.
They didn’t and he has had 27 sacks over the last two seasons.
