Haason Reddick – OLB

Many Arizona fans would argue that the club should’ve never let Hasson Reddick get out of town in the first place. It took the defensive coaches a few years to figure out where the 2017 first-round draft pick could be best-utilized. When they finally did, Keim allowed Reddick to sign a one-year, free-agent deal with the Carolina Panthers last offseason.

Edge-rushers Chandler Jones and Dennis Gardeck will both be searching for new contracts in 2022. The Cardinals have balked on handing Jones a fresh deal, and they might be willing to let him walk. Gardeck is a solid special teams performer who has had zero impact on defense during the current campaign.

Reddick has transformed himself into a Pro Bowl-caliber linebacker. A reunion with the squad who drafted him could be the right move for both the former Temple University product and the Cards.
