Haason Reddick agrees to one-year contract with Panthers
One of the most productive free agents on the market has landed somewhat surprisingly on a prove-it deal.
Standout pass-rusher Haason Reddick agreed to a one-year contract with the Carolina Panthers. According to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, the contract is worth a maximum of $8 million.

Reddick is coming off a breakout season with the Arizona Cardinals, where he collected 12.5 sacks and forced six fumbles. With the reduced salary cap, teams weren’t willing to bet that Reddick’s 2020 represents his new normal, so he’ll have to prove it again in 2021. He’ll have the opportunity to do so under coach Matt Rhule, who coached Reddick at Temple.
The Panthers are coming off a 5-11 season and are clearly eager to improve. This may serve as a prelude to an even bigger move yet to come.
