We all saw how well Haason Reddick played in 2020, but sometimes it is fun to see outlets agree.

That is why when Pro Football Focus brokedown the most improved player for each team in 2020, it was not surprising to see Reddick as the Cardinals choice.


Reddick had 57 career pressures coming into this season, and he nearly matched that total with 56 pressures in 2020 alone — 13th among all edge defenders. In fact, Reddick’s 26 pressures over the final four weeks of the 2020 campaign would be more than he had in any entire season prior to this past year. Arizona could not have hoped for much more out of the fourth-year player in his first full NFL season as an edge defender after he earned PFF grades of just 54.0, 60.4 and 40.2 in his first three campaigns.

It’s an interesting time for Reddick to hit free agency given his career year and his move away from a hybrid role.

Reddick made an easy decision very difficult when he decided to play well when finally given a shot to play edge full time for the Cardinals.

Now, they have to find a way to get him back on the roster without breaking the bank.

They can’t let their most improved player go continue to progress on another team in 2021.
