Which Eagles Player Could Be a First-Time Pro Bowler in 2022?
The Philadelphia Eagles' offseason has been well received, but their first signing might actually be their most impactful signing.
The Eagles signed former Temple University standout Haason Reddick to a three-year, $45 million contract and are hoping he makes a major impact to their pass rush.
Reddick has 23.5 sacks over the past two seasons, but has yet to make a Pro Bowl.
However, Conor Orr of Sports Illustrated wrote on Tuesday morning that Reddick could be a possible first-time NFL Pro Bowler in 2022, listing him as one of 10 players around the league that could make the Pro Bowl for the first-time.
Reddick, a sixth-year pro, will be instrumental in closing out games for the Eagles this year and, after getting a chance to shine in a pressure-heavy system a year ago, now has the tape commensurate with his skill set. New coordinator Jonathan Gannon will have Reddick in the backfield often, especially if the Eagles continue their ascent and manage to lead a majority of their games, forcing opponents into obvious passing downs.
Orr observes that Reddick will have some good matchups with the Giants, coupled wit the opportunity to play with some very good defensive tackles, which should take more attention off Reddick.
Reddick could go up this season with defenses having to pay attention to so many different talented players like Brandon Graham, Josh Sweat, Derek Barnett, Nakobe Dean, Javon Hargrave and more.
Does all this mean Reddick will make a Pro Bowl in 2022? Maybe, maybe not, but there is a good possibility that he has another good season of rushing the quarterback.
