BREAKING NEWS: Patriots sign Matt Judon away from Baltimore


The New England Patriots made another big splash in free agency Monday, agreeing to terms with ex-Ravens DE Matt Judon, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Judon, 28, has spent the last five years with the Ravens after being drafted as a fifth-rounder in 2016. He made the Pro Bowl each of the last two years and has 34.5 career sacks.

Patriots nab Matt Judon in free agency

Fantasy slant: The Patriots' spending barrage continues as New England reloads on the defensive line. Judon's 30.5 sacks over his last four seasons in Baltimore are a welcome addition. Bill Belichick's defense had no issues creating havoc last season, ranking fifth in pressure rate (26.4%). After finishing tied at fourth among all linebackers and defensive ends in quarterback hits (15) last season, with Judon in house, the Patriots will again terrorize the signal callers of the AFC East. – Derek Brown
