There's nothing like those Friday afternoon news dumps, right? This is not an exaggeration. Two hours before the announcement of the Philadelphia Eagles' decision to trade Haason Reddick, several thoughts had run through our minds.

Wow, all they've been talking about on 94 WIP-FM all day has been the Haason Reddick trade... It's opening day for Phillies... Maybe we can sneak a day off in on our schedule... There's no way the Eagles would steal the headlines today, right?

We were obviously wrong.

There we were, watching a little opening-day baseball. The news of Haason Reddick's trade came as quickly as we were notified that Philly had signed him a little over two years ago.

And, just like that, our dreams of a day off died. As you can imagine, there's been some discussion. Both local and national media have been busy.

Here's more about the details of the Haason Reddick trade and

Just in case you were one of like two people who missed the announcement, here's what has transpired. The Philadelphia Eagles have traded Haason Reddick to the New York Jets for a conditional 2026 third-round selection. That pick can become a second-rounder if Haason plays 67.5% of the Jets' defensive snaps and produces ten or more sacks.

As you might imagine, that little nugget didn't go unnoticed by the national media. Here were some of the immediate reactions by everyone from Adam Schefter and Jeremy Fowler to Ian Rapoport, Pro Football Reference, and Next Gen Stats.

Some of the familiar voices, Eagles insiders who cover the team daily, weren't to be outdone. Here's some of what they said in the aftermath.

The Jets are going to be stacked on defense next season despite the losses (one of which being new Eagles edge rusher Bryce Huff). Look at some of these names: Quinnen Williams, Sauce Gardner, C.J. Mosley, Quincy Williams, D.J. Reed, and Jermaine Johnson.

Reddick, a former star at Temple, leaves Philly having stacked 87 tackles, 27 sacks, five forced fumbles, four pass breakups, and three fumble recoveries in 34 regular-season games that spanned the 2022 and 2023 Eagles campaigns. He notched another ten tackles, 3.5 sacks, and a forced fumble in four postseason games.

He leaves the Birds having made two Pro Bowls. Wow! Nolan Smith, Bryce Huff, and Josh Sweat had better be ready.
