Eagles Reportedly Rework Sweat's Contract after Trade Talk


In a week where Josh Sweat’s days as a Philadelphia Eagles appeared to be numbered, it concludes with a reworked deal to keep the Pro Bowl edge.

Per ESPN, his new deal increases his guaranteed money while decreasing his 2024 cap hit.

Sweat had become the subject of trade talks along with fellow edge rusher Haason Reddick, with both set to be a free agent following the ‘24 season.

Following the signing of Bryce Huff to a three-year deal, $51.1 million contract on day one of free agency’s legal tampering period, it appeared that one or both of Sweat and Reddick would be on the move.

Coming off a 2023 season where he started strong with six sacks in his first nine games, Sweat faded along with the rest of the defense, going the final eight games of the regular season without a sack.

It was a taxing year for Sweat, going through a midseason de-facto coordinator change while playing a career high 828 snaps, 170 more than his previous most.

But at his best, the 26-year-old provides elite pass rush and run defense. He also provides size at the edge at 6’5 and 265 pounds, something that is lacking in the trio of Reddick, Huff, and 2023 first round draft pick Nolan Smith.

With Sweat and Huff locked into their contracts for this season, the next move is to find a resolution with the 30-year-old Reddick.
