Matt Judon Wants Long-Term Deal

Baltimore Ravens defensive end Matt Judon, who received the franchise tag this year, wants to lock down a long-term contract with the team before the July 15 deadline. "I'm happy to be a Raven. I want to stay here for as long as I play, but I understand that it's a business and they kind of have a bad/good problem to have. We have a lot of young talent," Judon said. The pass-rusher signed his franchise tag in late May. Judon had career-highs in sacks (9.5), QB hits (33) and forced fumbles (four) last year, becoming a key leader for a defense ranked in the top five in points and yards allowed per game in 2019. The 27-year-old has the ability to play both defensive end and outside linebacker. He'll make a career-high $16.808 million in 2020 under the franchise tag if no long-term deal is reached. Judon isn't really on the IDP radar as a linebacker, but the Ravens Defense is an easy top-five fantasy target among defenses.

Matt Judon Signs Franchise Tender

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Matt Judon signed his one-year franchise tender on Thursday, according to a source. The one-year deal will carry a value of $16.808 million in 2020, a midpoint between the rate for linebackers and defensive ends as a product of a "rare compromise" between player and team. The Ravens and Judon still have until July 15 to work out a long-term extension, but that's unlikely to happen considering the Ravens initially tagged Judon with the possibility of trading him. The former fifth-round pick in 2016 has 135 solo tackles, 45 tackles for loss, 82 QB hits, 28.5 sacks, eight passes defensed and seven forced fumbles in his four seasons. Judon was a Pro Bowler in 2019 when he had a career-high 9.5 sacks, 14 tackles for loss and 33 QB hits. He'll be entering his age-28 season in 2020.

Ravens Placing Franchise Tag On Matthew Judon

The Baltimore Ravens are officially placing the franchise tag on linebacker Matthew Judon, according to sources. This was fully expected. Judon, 27, may be a tag-and-trade candidate if the two sides are unable to work out a long-term contract extension by this summer. He racked up a career-high 9.5 sacks in 16 games last season while also recording 54 tackles (43 solo) and four forced fumbles. Even if Judon isn't on the squad to begin the 2020 season, Baltimore's ball-hawking defense will be a high-end fantasy target near the end of drafts.
