The Arizona Cardinals have declined to pick up Haason Reddick’s fifth year option.

He joins a list of first round misses by the Arizona Cardinals that has put them at this stage in their rebuild.

Reddick was a tweener coming out, but his athletic traits and strong showing at the Senior Bowl outweighed the concerns over a position switch in the NFL.

Reddick started off as a 34 inside back who would help the team get bigger and more athletic at the position.

However, injuries on defense during Reddick’s rookie season causes a switch to outside backer.

In his second season he was moved back off the ball in the Cardinals new 43 defensive scheme, and statistically was fine, 80 tackles 8 tackles for loss and 4 sacks in Steve Wilks defense.

His third season meant another new head coach, position coach and coordinator.

It would also ultimately be the season that spelled the end for Reddick.

The Cardinals made a plethora of offseason moves at the positions that Reddick could potentially play, paving the way for the Cardinals to decline his fifth-year option.
