The Camden, New Jersey native is returning home.
The Philadelphia Eagles signed pass rusher Haason Reddick to a three-year deal on Monday. Per NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo, Reddick’s contract is worth $45 million with $30 million guaranteed.

The 27-year-old attended Temple University. The Arizona Cardinals drafted him in the first-round of the 2017 NFL Draft. In his first three seasons, he had a slow start with 7.5 total sacks. However, what seemed like a bad year for everyone else in 2020, wasn’t the case for Reddick — on the field.
In the 2020 season alone, he completed 12.5 sacks. Despite a career-high, the Cardinals declined their fifth-year option on Reddick. The Carolina Panthers then signed him to a one-year deal in 2021. Reddick reunited with head coach Matt Rhule who coached him at Temple, leading the Panthers with 11 sacks and 18 quarterback hits.
Over the last two seasons, his 23.5 total sacks are the fifth-most in the NFL over that span. Reddick is also one of three players with more than 300 tackles and over 30 sacks since joining the NFL in 2017.
Now coming full circle, Reddick will return to Philadelphia.
The Eagles’ pass rushers Derek Barnett and Ryan Kerrigan are both set for free agency. Reddick’s contract now makes it unlikely they will return to play in midnight green.
