Quarterback Aaron Rodgers and edge rusher Haason Reddick did not report to the start of the New York Jets' two-day mandatory minicamp on Tuesday, leaving both players subject to fines.

Reddick, 29, who came over in a March trade with the Philadelphia Eagles, skipped all voluntary offseason workouts due to a contract dispute. In the final season of a three-year, $45 million contract he signed in 2022 with the Eagles, he's slated to earn a non-guaranteed $14.25 million in base pay.

Meanwhile, Jets coach Robert Saleh told reporters that Rodgers' absence was "unexcused" despite the 40-year-old Rodgers telling him ahead of time that he had a prior commitment.

Reddick, who had previously forfeited a $250,000 workout bonus, faces a $16,953 fine for missing the first day of the minicamp and an additional $33,908 if he misses the second day.

The Jets were aware that Reddick wanted a new contract but made the trade for the two-time Pro Bowl player who has 50.5 sacks over the past four seasons They sent the Eagles a 2026 conditional third-round pick to complete the trade.

The only player 29 and older to get an extension under Jets general manager Joe Douglas was tight end Ryan Griffin, who was 29 when he signed a three-year, $10.8 million deal in November 2019.
