Judon was considered one of the top outside linebackers in free agency and is coming off of his second consecutive Pro Bowl season. Last offseason, the Ravens placed the franchise tag on Judon, and now, he has capitalized on the open market. In 2020, he recorded 50 combined tackles, six sacks, and two passes defensed in 14 games played.
This makes Matt Judon is now the third-highest tight end in the NFL.
