This isn’t much of a surprise, considering that Reddick has failed to live up to his draft status and has reportedly been available for trade for over a year now.
The fifth-year option was guaranteed for injury only and wouldn’t have prevented them from negotiating a contract extension in the coming months. It was projected to cost them $10,089,000 for the 2021 season.
Reddick, 25, is a former first-round pick of the Cardinals back in 2017. He’s entering the final year of his four-year, $13.47 million fully guaranteed contract.
In 2019, Reddick appeared in 16 games for the Cardinals and recorded 76 tackles, one sack, and one fumble recovery.
