According to a report on Monday, the recently acquired edge rusher was not in attendance for the Jets’ media day.

As the New York Jets report today for mandatory minicamp, a star defender is reportedly still not in the building.

According to Connor Hughes, recent trade acquisition Haason Reddick is not present at the team’s facility.

Head coach Robert Saleh said last week that while he “has not had contact” with Reddick, he expected the veteran to be in attendance for the mandatory minicamp.

Reddick’s absence is not surprising. The edge rusher is heading into the final year of the contract he signed with the Philadelphia Eagles, being due for $15 million in 2024. However, his salary is not guaranteed, meaning Reddick risks losing a hefty payday in the event of an injury.

As a result, it makes sense that Reddick has not shown up yet. The veteran wants to ensure that he either gets his payday from the Jets or does not risk losing out on money by playing on a non-guaranteed deal.

Reddick could still show up to practice, but the situation looks to be leaning toward him not attending minicamp. Some may make a big deal of the defender missing the practices, especially considering that he has not practiced once with his new team.

Additionally, this line of thinking could cause some to make the case that, instead of trading for Reddick, the Jets could have kept Bryce Huff and John Franklin-Myers instead. With the type of money Reddick is likely seeking, New York could have possibly kept two players for the price of one.

However, there is no reason to panic in June. Plenty of players have held out and not participated in mandatory practices, only to have their issues resolved by the start of training camp. Look no further than star defensive tackle Quinnen Willaims, who missed the majority of the offseason program before getting his massive extension.

The detractors may be correct, as Huff and Franklin-Myers’ combined contracts may be better values than Reddick himself and would have helped avoid the contract issues. But until the calendar flips to late July and training camp arrives, there is no need to truly panic about Reddick and his standing with New York.
