Did Haason Reddick mislead the Jets before he was traded from the Eagles?

After a disastrous 2023 season for the Jets, the team wants to bounce back in 2024. New York has added pieces on both sides of the ball to improve the roster. This offseason, the team lost two key defensive linemen, Bryce Huff and John Franlkin-Myers. Huff signed a three-year, $51 million deal with the Philadelphia Eagles. 

Additionally, the Jets made a trade with the Eagles for pass-rusher Hasson Reddick. New York was aware of his expiring contract and they were comfortable making the deal.

However, Reddick missed the mandatory mini-camp last week due to his contract disputes. Leaving the Jets in a tough situation.
