The Philadelphia Eagles moved on from star edge rusher Haason Reddick in favor of former New York Jets edge rusher Bryce Huff.

Reddick, 30, has been one of the top sack artist in the NFL during his two season with Philadelphia, racking up 27 total sacks in 34 games, adding another 3.5 in four playoff outings.

As for Huff, he the 26-year old has just 17.5 sacks over 54 career games with the Jets, but the Eagles are banking that coming off a 10-sack 2023 campaign, he is ready to take the next step to stardom.

It seems the people at Pro Football Focus’ agree in their latest series of rankings, with the Top 32 edge rushers ahead of the 2024 NFL season.

The Eagles new toy, Huff, came in at No. 14 on the list.

Huff has been on an absolute tear as a pass rusher over the past two seasons, recording pass-rush grades of 88.0 and 86.8 with pass-rush win rates of 25.6% and 22.9%. His run-defense grades remain poor, but he is very impactful as a pass-rush specialist.

The team signed Huff to a brand new three-year contract worth $51.1 million after posting a career-high 29 tackles, ten tackles for loss, and ten sacks in 2023.

As for Reddick, who had 16 sacks in 2022 but went down to 11 in 2024.  He came in at No. 18 on the PFF list.

Reddick is third on the NFL sack list over the past two seasons (27.5). The pass-rush specialist moved from Philadelphia to New York this offseason, and we'll see if he can keep up his effective pass-rush ways.

The Eagles traded Reddick in exchange for a conditional 2026 third-round pick which becomes a second-rounder if Reddick plays in 67.5 percent of the Jets plays and has 10 or more sacks this year.

it seems the Eagles are banking that the younger Huff will give them more production than Reddick and PFF agrees.
