The NY Jets have firmly established themselves as one of the teams to beat in the NFL following the Haason Reddick trade. At least on paper, it's hard to deny the Jets have one of the best rosters in the league.

Of course, there are plenty of variables pertaining to the 2024 Jets — especially in regards to health — but if this team stays healthy, there's no reason they shouldn't be competing for a Super Bowl.

The Reddick trade just furthers that notion. But while this trade is undoubtedly an outstanding move by the Jets in a vacuum, not everyone is a beneficiary of the acquisition.

Taking into account playing time, production, and a host of other factors, let's take a look at some of the biggest winners and losers from the Reddick trade.

Winner: The entire NY Jets defense

The New York Jets are a significantly better team after trading for Haason Reddick. It's fair to question the decision-making that led to the Jets making this decision, but there's no denying that statement.

The Jets have the best and most complete defense in the NFL on paper. Reddick joins Quinnen Williams, Jermaine Johnson, and John Franklin-Myers to form arguably the NFL's best defensive line.

They're paired with arguably the league's best linebacker duo in Quincy Williams and C.J. Mosley. Throw in the best cornerback trio in the NFL with Sauce Gardner, D.J. Reed, and Michael Carter, and you have the best defense in football.

Reddick is the most accomplished pass rusher the Jets have had since John Abraham. He makes everyone's job easier and completes a truly stacked defense for Gang Green.
