The Eagles ended up trading Haason Reddick this offseason but he wasn’t the only pass rusher who was reportedly on the block. Veteran Josh Sweat was also rumored to be available but that changed when the Eagles got him re-signed on a restructured deal.

Sweat signed a contract worth $10 million and was expected to be a big part of their defense even with the addition of Bryce Huff.

In his sixth season in the league, Sweat recorded 6.5 sacks in 2023 and has 31 over the past four seasons.

As effective as he’s been, the Eagles might be willing to listen to offers — if they’re interested in adding draft capital in 2025. While trading Sweat would result in a chunk of dead money, they do have Brandon Graham for one more season (before he hangs it up) and just added Jalyx Hunt from Houston Christian in the draft as a developmental pass-rusher.

Their willingness to make a move would come down to their opinion on 2023 first-round selection Nolan Smith. The former Georgia Bulldog had just 18 tackles and one sack last season but if they believe he’s ready for more, they could try and flip Sweat.
