Jets still dealing with Haason Reddick’s dissatisfaction

The Eagles have decided not to offer defensive end Haason Reddick a new contract and instead traded him to the Jets. However, the Jets have also not yet given Reddick a new contract, leading to his absence from offseason workouts. This has raised questions about why the Jets did not negotiate a new deal for Reddick at the time of the trade, as players often gain leverage after a trade occurs.

If Reddick does incur fines for skipping the team’s mandatory minicamp, they will be less than the usual three-day punishment due to the Jets reducing their camp to two days. Despite this, Reddick has already sacrificed a $250,000 workout bonus in hopes of negotiating a better contract that exceeds his current $14.25 million salary in its final year. With four consecutive years of double-digit sacks and no missed games in his seven-year career, Reddick’s stance for a new contract is understandable.

Finalizing a new deal simultaneously with the trade would have provided the Jets with better terms, but they chose to put themselves in a challenging position by trading for Reddick without one. Receiver Brandon Aiyuk remains with the 49ers because no team will trade for him without a new contract. By trading for Reddick without a new deal, the Jets have created an obstacle that may become clearer this week if he chooses to skip their mandatory minicamp and face fines as a result.
