Several big-name players find themselves at the center of trade rumors right now, and Philadelphia Eagles star Haason Reddick is chief among them. The incredibly productive pass-rusher is looking to earn a well-deserved pay bump this offseason, but the Eagles may not be the ones to give it to him, as they've allowed the veteran to pursue a possible trade.

While fans are hoping Philadelphia forks over the cash to keep Reddick around, the buzz around a move is only heating up.

CBS Sports insider Josina Anderson reports "several teams" have "expressed interest" in trading for Reddick. This news comes during the 2024 NFL Scouting Combine, which has key decision-makers from all 32 teams together at the same venue.

It's no surprise to see these whispers growing louder as free agency and the draft approach. Franchises are finalizing their targets to improve for the 2024 campaign, and Reddick is likely at or near the top of several wishlists considering his production.

The news of more than one team being in the hunt for Reddick certainly ups the pressure on Howie Roseman. Reddick's representation will be able to scout the entire league for the best possible deal for their client, and they don't care if that's with Philly or someone else.

The fact the league's salary cap is even bigger than expected for next season means several squads have more money to spend as well, which only helps Reddick's quest to cash in.

Roseman spoke on the Reddick situation at the combine on Monday, but he didn't state a clear desire to bring the Pro Bowler back. The Eagles GM also noted the team has to balance competing now and with future planning, which could foreshadow sacrificing a win-now player in Reddick to have more flexibility for 2025 and beyond.

The combine could end up laying the groundwork for a Reddick deal, but it's up to Roseman if he wants to go down that path.
