Please don't let us get trade raped acquiring former Rhule guys.

Redick's value is little to none. Arizona has yet to figure out how to utilize him and I'm sure would be more than happy to unload him for any compensation. He's in the last year of his rookie contract and there's almost no chance they pick up his 5th year option. Probably the only reason they haven't publicly declined it already is to inflate some trade value thinking teams might be stupid enough to offer something meaningful. I'd be ok with offering a conditional 6th if he meets some significant metrics (e.g. plays > 60% of snaps) that drops to a 7th if he doesn't, banking on the Rhule connection and former 1st rounder upside. But outside of that, I wouldn't bite.

Yeah, I am okay making a trade for a 6th rounder or lower. Other than that, I am just not seeing it. We can just sign him as a free agent next year. It's also just a one year deal, so trading almost any draft capital for that seems illogical.

After reading an article on him, It seems like he struggled on the inside, but I have no idea why they moved him from the outside to the inside in the first place. Maybe Arizona wasn't patient enough and put someone else on the outside to get quicker results and then were desperate to find a starting spot for him since he's a first rounder?

I would definitely take a shot on him for a low price. He was very talented coming out of Temple and is familiar with Rhule and Snow’s D. Could be a rewarding reclamation project.

Arizona takes a lot of these positionless players and they generally fail to use them correctly.

Undersized edge guy in college having trouble adjusting to LB in the NFL.  We already have one of those with Haynes.  I'd swap the two straight up, but that's about it.  No higher than a 7th rounder to sweeten the deal.

I’d first check their roster and see if with them draft he’s even going to make the team. They can cut him and save $2.3M so it’s not like they wouldn’t benefit from not having him on the roster. We tend to jump in too quick thinking anyone other than us sees value in this guy. No one else does and if he actually wants to play a few more years then playing for Rhule is probably his best chance.

Jumping in too quick is how we wasted two really valuable picks that could have been our starting C (McCoy) and RG (Evans) on Little and how we paid $3.5M for Seth Roberts and how we cornered the bridge QB market while NO hot a higher ceiling QB for $20M less.

They can't save any money by cutting him. He is on his rookie deal. All that money is guaranteed. They could perhaps cut him but he has been a productive backup for them, so I don't see why they would unless roster spots are tight.

He’s not OL but Arizona would “gladly” move on from Haason Reddick. 
 

https://www.google.ca/amp/s/arizonasports.com/story/1103248/former-temple-coach-matt-rhule-on-haason-reddick-hes-everything-thats-right-with-college-football/amp/
 

Rhule on Reddick:

“I love Haason,” Rhule told Doug and Wolf Friday on 98.7 FM, Arizona’s Sports Station. “He’s everything that’s right with college football. He’s tough, he’s hard-nosed. He got his degree and played so hard for us and so well for us and helped us turn this program around.

“You’re really kind of getting versatility, you’re getting two players in one,” the coach said. “He’s a guy who can play off the ball and be a weakside inside linebacker and use that 4.5 speed to cover guys out of the backfield and at the same time, I think he can be a tremendous weapon blitzing. Not many running backs are going to be able to block this kid.

“And he’s a great nickel rusher. You get into the sub packages — he can put his hand in the ground and his burst and athleticism and getting up the field are elite, even at that level, so I think they’ll use him probably as a combination off-the-ball linebacker, but also knowing they have a tremendous nickel pass rusher as well.”
 

Be interesting to see if Rhule makes a play for him

Snow developed a walk on into the #13 pick in the draft. Would expect he has a fair idea of how he can use him.
