The Jacksonville Jaguars need to bolster the pass rush and it looks like they'll spare no expenses to do it. Mike Fisher of Sports Illustrated reports that the Jags and the Dallas Cowboys are interested in trading for Philadelphia Eagles outside linebacker Haason Reddick.

Fisher points out that other clubs may also be interested in Reddick but only the Cowboys and Jacksonville are confirmed. The Jags are also reportedly interested in making a run for Minnesota Vikings defensive end Danielle Hunter in free agency, so it looks like they're prioritizing bolstering the pass rush this offseason.

The advantage of going after Hunter in free agency is that the Jags wouldn't have to give up with any compensation. Conversely, they would have to either send the Eagles a draft pick, a player, or both, if they want to pursue Reddick. Then again, he's one of the top rushers in the league, so Jacksonville would be getting plenty of bang for their buck.

After registering just 7.5 sacks in the first three years of his NFL career, Reddick had 12.5 in 2020. He then spent a year with the Carolina Panthers and once again crossed the 10-sack mark. The Temple product then joined the Philadelphia Eagles in 2022 and has had a pair of fruitful seasons, registering 27 sacks and five forced fumbles.

On top of that Reddick was named Second-Team All-Pro in 2022 and made the Pro Bowl the past two years. In Jacksonville, he would give a trio of pass rushers alongside Travon Walker and Josh Allen. So what would it take the Jags to land him? Here are three trade scenarios.

3. Jaguars trade a 1st round pick for Haason Reddick

The easiest path to get a deal done would be for the Jaguars to give up their first-round pick, the 17th overall selection, in 2024. While they could address the cornerback position, or the interior offensive line, Haason Reddick would give the Jaguars the third pass rusher they sorely lacked last year.

On top of that, the Jaguars could easily take a cornerback in Round 2, and this will be a deep interior offensive linemen class, so they can afford to bolster both positions later in the draft.
