Commanders linked with Haason Reddick

It's no secret that the Washington Commanders are on the lookout for pass-rushing assistance this offseason. Trading Montez Sweat and Chase Young before the deadline dictates as much. As previously stated, those in power have impressive resources to help fill the gaping void left by their two previous starting defensive ends.

Going down the draft route would be wise as part of their long-term plans for growth. There should be viable options in free agency to further bolster the ranks. Shane Shoemaker from Clutch Points went one step further, naming the Commanders as an ideal landing spot for Philadelphia Eagles edge rusher Haason Reddick via trade.

"Speaking of cap space, no team has more of it in the league than the Commanders next season with $83.5 million. That means that if they want to be, they can go out and do a little free-spending, so to speak. The Commanders will be welcoming in new head coach Dan Quinn, the former defensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys. He just spent the last couple years with Micah Parsons and Demarcus Lawrence. Quinn won't have that in Washington in 2024, at least not on the outside. The biggest question may be, though, would the Eagles be willing to trade within their own division?"

The Eagles made Reddick available for a trade earlier this week. The player didn't request the move but acknowledged this was a business above all else. Much will depend on the cost, but strengthening their pass-rushing options while also weakening an NFC East rival comes with obvious benefits attached.
