Haason Reddick – OLB

2021 Team: Carolina Panthers

Recent rumblings indicate that superstar edge-rusher Chandler Jones will be taking his talents elsewhere in 2022. If that occurs, Keim will need to do his best to replace the four-time Pro Bowler.

One possible candidate for that gig is Haason Reddick, a former first-round draft pick of the Cards who played for the Carolina Panthers last fall. Could the 27-year-old be coaxed into returning to the desert this year?

Reddick has registered 23.5 sacks over the last two campaigns, the exact type of production that “Big Red” would need out of the position if Jones leaves. A significant portion of the fanbase was sorry to see the former Temple University product leave in 2021, so the reacquisition of Reddick could very well be viewed as a popular move.
