After a stellar, career-saving season in 2020, Haason Reddick will command a big-time payday. While the Cardinals will without a doubt try to keep Reddick to add even more power to a dangerous pass rush, his odds for staying in Phoenix have slipped.
It’s clear that Reddick will test the free-agent market. And given his amazing season in 2020 where he logged 12.5 sacks and 6 forced fumbles, he will draw interest from more than a few NFL teams. Especially those in dire need of a franchise edge rusher.
Now that the Cardinals have Watt, it’s easier to see Reddick continue his career elsewhere if it becomes the case. Sure, he had a fantastic run in 2020 and he probably found his niche as an edge rusher in the NFL.
He’d be a great asset to keep around. But with Watt’s contract taking up a larger chunk of cap space, the only way Reddick stays is if he stays for a reduced price. And at this stage in his career, chances are he’s taking the money.
