The New York Jets have been active throughout the offseason to better their chances of making the playoffs in 2024. They have signed Tyron Smith and Mike Williams to improve their lackluster offense but they didn't stop there.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the New York Jets are acquiring Haason Reddick from the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for a conditional 2026 third-round pick that could go up to a second-rounder.

This move comes a few weeks after Bryce Huff signed with the Eagles in free agency. With a hole along the defensive line, GM Joe Douglas decided to fill that void with a productive veteran.

Reddick is one of the best speed rushers in the league. The former Temple product has a great get-off with a variety of moves to get past blockers.

The 29-year-old has recorded 58 sacks in his career, including four straight seasons with double-digit sacks.

Reddick now joins a talented defensive line that features Quinnen Williams, Jermaine Johnson, John Franklin-Myers, and Will McDonald.

In a must-win season, these are the moves needed to help take your team over the top.

The Jets believe they have a championship roster and have made a few tweaks in the offseason. With Aaron Rodgers returning, they should make the playoffs and could be a dark horse.
