The Philadelphia Eagles defensive line could have a different look to it in 2024. Linebacker Haason Reddick has been granted permission to seek a trade.

Reddick, 29, agreed to a three-year, $45 million deal with the Eagles in 2022. The Temple product has outplayed his current deal since coming to Philadelphia. Reddick has a blazing quick get-off and causes havoc in the backfield. He's compiled 27 sacks over the past two seasons, including 3.5 sacks during the Eagles' 2022 postseason run.

Per Spotrac, the Eagles have $20.8 million in cap space but have a few holes to fill on the squad. If they do move on from Reddick they would receive more cap flexibility and draft compensation.

Over the past few years, we've seen some high-profile pass rushers get shipped out.

In 2023, the Washington Commanders made two trades featuring their top-edge rushers. The Commanders sent Montez Sweat to the Chicago Bears for a 2024 second-round pick. They turned around and traded Chase Young to the San Francisco 49ers for a 2024 third-round pick.

During the 2022 season, the Bears dealt Khalil Mack to the Los Angeles Chargers for a 2022 second-round pick and 2023 sixth rounder.

Going back to 2021, Denver shipped out Von Miller to the Los Angeles Rams for a 2022 second-rounder and 2023 third-round pick.

These deals can certainly give the Eagles a base on the value they could receive in exchange for Reddick. Although he's turning 30 in September, the 2017 first-round pick has been productive. He's notched double-digit sacks in four straight seasons.

The highest-paid edge rushers in the league are making at least $23.5 million so if Philly doesn't want to pony that up, it's the best decision to ship him out.

In a potential deal, the Eagles could receive a second-rounder with either a third or fourth-round pick for Reddick. Those are valuable assets for a team that has some holes on the roster to fill.
