The third move the Patriots have made today alone, with the signing of Linebacker Matthew Judon. Immediately after the news came out about the Jonnu Smith signing, it was reported that the Patriots were ‘pursuing’ the former Raven. An hour later, he gets his payday.
Judon, 28, will earn $56M, and within the first two years of the contract he’ll make $32M, according to Tom Pelissero.
Judon spent 2016-2020 with the Ravens, appearing in 76 games tallying 49 starts. In a 2020 where he was franchise tagged, he had 50 tackles in 2020 in 14 games.
