Jets LB Haason Reddick skipping OTAs, not in contact with coach

haason reddick

The New York Jets acquired Pro Bowl pass-rusher Haason Reddick from the Philadelphia Eagles this offseason, but their coach has yet to even speak with Reddick.

Jets coach Robert Saleh said he’s had no communication with Reddick since the trade on March 29, and he does not know why Reddick is not with the team at OTAs this week.

“I’m focused on the guys who are here and Haason’s a pro,” Saleh told reporters. “He’s been in this league a while. He’s produced it at a very high level for a long time. He’s got his routine and if it makes people feel better, we know where he’s at, we know what he’s doing and we know he’s working his tail off to get where he needs to get you to have a productive ‘24 season.”

The prevailing theory is that Reddick, who was unhappy with his contract in Philadelphia, still wants a new deal. Saleh deferred to general manager Joe Douglas on contract questions.

Saleh said he expected Reddick to attend the Jets’ mandatory minicamp next week. Reddick has already forfeited a $250,000 workout bonus by skipping OTAs and would be subject to fines if he does not report to minicamp.

Reddick is entering the final season of a three-year, $45 million contract signed with Philadelphia in 2022.

Reddick, 29, made the Pro Bowl in each of the past two seasons and has four straight seasons of double-digit sacks. He has missed just one game in his seven-year career with the Arizona Cardinals (2017-20), Carolina Panthers (2021) and Eagles (2022-23) and has tallied 410 tackles (69 for loss), 58 sacks, 16 forced fumbles and five fumble recoveries.
